Your enterprise needs the ability to identify all duplicative or outmoded IT and business applications, services and other resources, and then to consolidate those worth keeping, migrate those worth updating, and retiring the rest. And that consolidation delivers multiple business benefits. Key among these: a single interface to multiple tools and resources, and more agile global operations. With the right practices, policies and technology platform, your enterprise can accomplish these goals in ways that accelerate growth, cut costs and complexities, and enhance competitiveness.
This complementary template focuses on the eight key areas for business process automation success to help you evaluate the quality of the platforms you are considering – and to ensure that the system you choose is agile and flexible enough to meet your business needs.

IT used to be so simple. Companies owned their own technology equipment and purchased enterprise licenses for many of the applications anybody in the organization might care to use. But then the cloud emerged, and mobile, and social media, and IoT; the world of IT has never been the same. Today's businesses are software-driven enterprises with technology capability distributed throughout the company, utilizing countless third-party cloud-based applications. This new organization requires an cultural shift in the IT organization.

Since it first emerged more than a decade ago, Service Oriented
Architecture (SOA) has been both widely praised as a modern, agile approach to software development and infrastructure architecture as well as dismissed as a colossal waste of time and money.
Missed expectations for many SOA projects led one analyst in 2009 to declare, “SOA is dead.” Far from being dead, however, service oriented architecture is in fact more relevant than ever.

The use of analytics will define the successful midmarket business of the next decade, just as it will define the successful larger organization in this information age.
The past decade has seen rapid change in the business climates with an explosion of global competition and economic uncertainty. Despite this, many midmarket companies have thrived by using their size and agility as a competitive advantage. Certainly they have fewer resources than large corporations who are able to invest large sums in IT. However, small yachts can turn and adjust their course much quicker than large cruise ships. The same came be said for midmarket companies.
The most successful organizations are ones that can react the quickest to changes in the market place. Midmarket companies can take advantage of their smaller size by being more agile and quicker to change, or even reinvent themselve

Integration Technologies Should Reduce The Burden of Data Integration and Management
Digital transformation has multiplied the number of packaged applications and the interfaces that support them. It also requires a greater agility from businesses to follow growing customer demands for value, innovation, and
new and improved digital interactions. This means that interfaces must constantly evolve to support the continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) of systems of engagement. These applications are under pressure from customer experience, employee experience, and the required operational excellence of automation systems.
"In an era where speed and performance are critical, moving to a software-centric approach in every area of the data center is the only way to get ahead in today's digital economy. A modern, software-defined infrastructure, enables organizations to leverage prior investments, extend existing IT knowledge and minimize disruption along the way.
VMware and Intel provide IT organizations a path to digital transformation, delivering consistent infrastructure and consistent operations across data centers and public clouds to accelerate application speed and agility for business innovation and growth."
Cloud-based solutions are revolutionizing the way that enterprises conduct business. These web-based versions of common business tools, like analytics or document management tools, retain most or all of the functionality of their desktop versions and provide significant access, customization, and utility to end users. More organizations are ditching on-premises solutions and adopting cloud-based tools, also known as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), "hosted," or "on-demand" solutions. The are becoming invaluable assets in today's agile and mobile workforce.
The public cloud has rapidly moved past the novelty, curiosity stage to the business critical initiative stage for nearly every established organization. In a 2016 IDC CloudView survey, 80% of the enterprises contacted were actively engaged in public-cloud projects. The driving forces are a realization that the public cloud is “enterprise ready” and the need to be more agile, more responsive and more competitive. For those organizations that already have an existing physical IT infrastructure, the common starting point is a hybrid approach, which extends the existing data center into Microsoft® Azure™.
DevOps (short for development and operations), like most
new approaches, is only a buzzword for many people.
Everyone talks about it, but not everyone knows what it is.
In broad terms, DevOps is an approach based on lean and agile
principles in which business owners and the development, operations,
and quality assurance departments collaborate to deliver
software in a continuous manner that enables the business to
more quickly seize market opportunities and reduce the time
to include customer feedback. Indeed, enterprise applications are
so diverse and composed of multiple technologies, databases,
end-user devices, and so on, that only a DevOps approach will be
successful when dealing with these complexities. Opinions differ
on how to use it, however.
Some people say that DevOps is for practitioners only; others say
that it revolves around the cloud. IBM takes a broad and holistic
view and sees DevOps as a business-driven software delivery
approach — an approach that takes a new or en
The traditional multiple-step, multi-tool legacy approach is a slow, time-consuming, and in most cases, a costly process that prevents organizations from making faster decisions with confidence. Data analysts today need an agile solution that empowers them to take charge of the entire analytics process.

Cloud has evolved from a technological innovation to an integral part of business. Companies in
every industry are investing in Digital Transformation initiatives to evolve and grow; often, cloudbased
platforms are foundational elements of these transformations, as businesses increasingly seek the
flexibility and agility to roll out new software services in days or weeks, versus months or years.
As Digital Transformation initiatives unfold, one key challenge is to modernize the data center to
facilitate rapid delivery of new applications and services—while still ensuring that existing missioncritical
applications remain high performing, available, and secure.
Another challenge relates to new requirements for accelerating the analysis of organizational data to
near real time, much faster than previously possible with earlier incarnations of Business Intelligence
(BI). Agile businesses are demanding faster access to the information contained within operational and
business data stores to

To become more effective, enterprises must fast-track projects to digitally connect their organizations. Building value and providing compelling customer experiences at lower cost requires more than a quick technology fix; it demands a business and technological commitment to a new target operating model (TOM). This operating model should offer a way of running the organization that combines digital technologies and operational capabilities to achieve improvements in revenue, customer experience and cost. Enabling digital capabilities via the TOM is an ongoing process that requires DevOps skills and agile development techniques. This is easier to achieve with partners that have the requisite capabilities to help with the creation of new digital assets
Organizations continue to rush down the digital transformation path. Whether by modernizing their IT infrastructures, leveraging the cloud, or becoming data-centric and data-driven, organizations must become more agile in their business practices and within their IT infrastructure stack to effectively compete in today’s dynamic business environment. Between the speed and distributed nature of modern businesses, as well as the expectation of instantaneous access to data from everyday users, it’s not surprising that nearly one in three organizations are looking into ways to improve data analytics for real-time business intelligence and customer insight.
