Enterprise IT is changing; no longer can organizations simply rely on old school "systems of record", they are increasingly pressured to implement new school "systems of engagement". These two computing paradigms are radically different however and the hybridized computing environment they create looks nothing like what most IT departments are familiar with, and nothing like what they know how to integrate, operate, and manage. To address this shortfall in ability in the face of this monumental and sweeping change, more and more enterprises are realizing they must turn to sourcing partners who can help them not just adopt and integrate these disparate platforms, but use them to revolutionize and transform their businesses.

Takeaways:

  • To be successful in today's dynamic market environment organizations must adopt new engagement-focused technologies
  • These tools are nothing like what has gone before and adopting, integrating, and leveraging them is overwhelming many IT groups
  • Using experienced partners is the key to success in this new world of hybridized computing platforms

Cloud has changed the way we build back-end systems, mobility has changed the way we build the front end too, and now the combination of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) is going to change the way we build networks. By allowing for the separation of control plane and data plane while simultaneously migrating both of those pieces to inexpensive commodity hardware we allow for the creation of more redundant, more dynamic, more efficient, and far less costly networks, eliminating a major bottle-neck to IT and service innovation.

Business Process as a Service is dependent on related services (SaaS), (PaaS), (IaaS), these services are then utilized to aid in the automation of critical business processes influencing productivity. BPaaS systems can streamline processes, however it is dependent on related services, and must have a well-defined interface. BPaaS can also reduce labor count through automation by adhering to cloud computing's traditional monthly pricing schedule. Implementation of this service is challenging because it relies on dependent services. The challenge arises in assessing three significant transformations: buyer transformation, service provider transformation, and vendor transformation. Great implementation begins with C-suite understanding, integration, and communication.

Takeaways:

  • Implementation is dependent on alternate software services
  • Understanding related services can provide insight into effective BPaaS utilization
  • Understanding enterprise transformations when transitioning to BPaaS

More enterprises are adopting hybridized systems utilizing cloud backup technologies. Determining the right cloud backup solution for an enterprise can be challenging, also determining which cloud platform is best for your IT infrastructure comes as an additional challenge. Enterprises need to first identify the overall system infrastructure and determine the proper cloud orchestration integration model. Then, internal security testing needs to be implemented to validate both security and functionality. Security, integration, and validation are the key components in powering the successful, more importantly 'secure' cloud backup.

Takeaways:

  • Identify the proper cloud orchestration integration model for your enterprise
  • Assess internal security measures, risk tolerance, and implementation strategy
  • Ensuring security behind implementation is critical

Social media is the least hyped and potentially least adopted of the so-called disruptive technologies, at least by enterprises in general. This doesn't mean that employees are embracing these tools personally however, nor does it mean that enterprises should continue to avoid them. The fact of the matter is social platforms allow for incredible levels of interaction that when harnessed can lead to significant creativity and productivity gains allowing enterprises that adopt and encourage the use of social collaboration platforms to be more successful than their non-social peers. But every newly adopted technology brings with it unique problems and so it is the CISOs job to provide the secure landscape within which this social collaboration, both internal and external, sanctioned and not, can occur.

Takeaways:

  • Your employees are already social whether you realize it or not, facilitate it or not so ignoring the issue only leads to greater security problems
  • Social collaboration presents a real security threat as information is more freely shared, and interactions occur outside the boundaries of enterprise control
  • Social security programs must be built in layers, addressing first unsanctioned use, then sanctioned all while differentiating between internal and external social activity

Each era of the digital economy has introduced innovations that fostered new forms of interaction; we've gone from connecting machines and people so they can share information to online collaboration and real-time participation. Just as PCs, networks, and Web apps revolutionized previous digital eras, interconnection is this era's game-changer. In the workplace of the future, customers, employees and partners will be dispersed over more geographic locations, using more devices and expecting more than ever, but current IT architectures that were built for a different time are in conflict with many of the core requirements of future computing. An interconnected enterprise directly connects its employees, partners and customers to what they need, in the right context, using the devices, channels and services.

Takeaways:

  • Organizations today are increasingly focused on achieving growth through new products, services, and markets in an ever-evolving digital economy
  • The rate of business change today is accelerating and technology leaders need to differentiate themselves by reimagining their approach
  • Enterprise that embrace advanced interconnection strategies are discovering that the challenges of growth, speed, scale, security, and engagement can be effectively addressed
