By 2020, more than seven billion people and businesses, and at least 30 billion devices, will be connected to the Internet. With people, businesses and devices communicating, transacting, and even negotiating with each other, a new world comes into being – the world of digital business.
This expansion promises an unprecedented convergence of digitally enabled people, business and devices. This convergence will disrupt traditional business models in powerful ways – even those that have long dominated the Internet and e-business.
This is being accomplished by focusing on the key pillars of their IT transformation. For most companies, this is primarily about taking the cost out of running existing applications.
- Increasingly though, for other companies that were essentially born in the cloud and who have been delivering these newer application experiences since day one, they need to figure out how to deliver the agile, elastic, utility experience of Cloud providers, via a new set of programmable, but transparent APIs. So, they need to first create a hybrid cloud infrastructure.
- Second, these companies need to drive differentiated innovation and customer experience by leveraging a modern app platform to deliver a new breed of apps that are cloud-native and mobile-centric. These PaaS tools, DevOps methodologies and mobile-centric approaches are hallmarks of the new digital economy.
- Third, they need to tap into the massive amount of data being generated by both their traditional and new applications and leverage a Data Lake as a strategic enabler to uncover new growth opportunities and identify operational improvements.
- Lastly, instead of adding more “duct tape” to new and old systems, they must take a holistic approach to security in everything they do and every aspect of what they manage, from infrastructure, to devices, to apps as well as the data they generate and analyse.
