The Digital Change is challenging for companies in every industry. Existing usage of older technologies have to co-exist with introduction of new technologies, such as AI, Blockchain and various digital initiatives through APIs and others. There are also a lot of new legislations and business requirements that must be considered.
Five Elements enabling the Digital Shift
Innovation and improved customer experience are typically drivers for digital business transformation, however at the same time you need to support and manage the “old”.
During the Gartner Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit this past May in London, collaborating with analysts and industry peers from industries such as financial services, manufacturing, automotive and others, we had many business and technical discussions with enterprises that have challenges choosing a global integration technology partner and the right approach to help secure, enable and implement its digital strategy.
There are at least five critical business areas to focus on and consider in today’s digital era, if you want to get it right;
- User experience … it has to be easy, for everyone, everywhere, every time!
- Integration Capabilities … integration is THE ENABLER for digital business transformation.
- Technology improvements … it has to be scalable, secure, adaptive and even more agile.
- Operations … The ability to do more with less, and at the same time support “old” and “new”.
- Deployment models … I want to deploy it anywhere, securely!
Where and how to you start improving your digital journey, other than choosing and using technology, what do you need to do to be successful?
