Digital transformation has arrived, and it’s creating unprecedented opportunities for companies of all sizes to become market leaders through the evolution of business processes and the creation of new products and services. Organizations that master digital transformation will see a dramatic increase in revenues and profitability by converging people, processes and technologies; those that do not will struggle to survive. Evidence of this is clear to see by looking at the churn in the biggest
companies in the world. For example, a Capgemini study found that since 2000, 52% of the Fortune 500 has disappeared through acquisitions or bankruptcies. The study also found that digital organizations control 70% of market share in all industries today. Therefore, making the shift to a digital business must be a top initiative for IT and business leaders.

Integration is the lifeblood of today’s digital economy, and middleware is the software layer connecting
different applications, services, devices, data sources, and business entities. This Ovum Decision
Matrix (ODM) is a comprehensive evaluation to help enterprise IT leaders, including chief information
officers (CIOs), enterprise/integration architects, integration competency center (ICC)/integration
center of excellence (CoE) directors, and digital transformation leaders select a middleware-as-aservice
(MWaaS) suite best suited to their specific hybrid integration requirements.
Since it first started providing air passenger services in 2000, JetBlue has been
innovating. It was the first airline to embrace dot.com transactions and electronic
ticketing, and continues to churn out industry-leading inventions as described
here. When business needs changed in 2014, JetBlue embarked on very robust
digital transformation based on TIBCO integration and analytics technology—and
the company was recognized with the first-ever TIBCO Trailblazer Impact award
for the incredible effect this project was having on its strategic differentiation. In
this case study, Director of Shared Development Services Andi Azzolina describes
the objectives, initiatives, capabilities, and achievements making up JetBlue’s
journey towards becoming the most caring travel provider in the world.

In businesses and organizations across the world, rooms once humming with wires, black boxes and blinking lights now sit empty. In a lonely phone closet, there’s only dust, a single lonely terminal, or perhaps a foosball table where IT pros can let off steam.
The cloud – and more specifically, cloud communications – is the source of the transformation, which has fundamentally changed the IT landscape. Some IT pros have embraced it. Some are working on migrating to the cloud over time. And others, through choice or necessity, are sticking with a premises-based approach.
Read on to find out why some IT pros are shopping for game tables to go in empty server rooms while others are untangling wires and watching blinking lights—and which cases make the most sense for each approach.
When it comes to investing in ERP systems, improving the efficiency and responsiveness of business processes is a top concern for SAP customers. However, among IT professionals, safe delivery is of higher priority than ERP digitalization or starting an IT agility transformation.
With SAP S/4HANA, this no longer needs to be a compromise. When moving to SAP S/4HANA, IT professionals need to implement not only the technical upgrade of SAP S/4HANA but also the required customizations, which necessitate an intensive amount of business collaboration and software delivery. And for that to happen, IT needs an enterprise agile delivery solution to gather and implement the business requirements to SAP S/4HANA as quickly as possible without business disruption.

This rapidly evolving digital world is also redefining the relationship between your
business and your customers, who now expect a convenient, interactive experience
from their preferred brands. Security is also a concern. Risk is rising, as both the
enterprise and its customers exchange a growing amount of sensitive data.
This transformation is also amplifying competition. As analyst Mark Raskino notes,

"We live in a world where the ability to do business digitally is a given. Now more than ever, people want to do business with organizations via the ease, speed, convenience and security of a fully digital experience. Yet many businesses are failing to keep pace in their front office with customer expectations, as well as with competitors that have made digital transformation a priority.
Download this eBook to learn how B2B companies can evolve to meet customer expectations by adopting a fully digital experience with eSignatures. Some quick stats:
- 87% of U.S. workers expect to be able to sign and purchase digitally
- 75% of U.S. workers think that eSignatures are more secure than paper methods "
Companies across the globe are all facing the same economic headwinds: business change in the form of competitive threats and new opportunities is coming at an unprecedented pace. The watchword for meeting these challenges is innovation – both in terms of business processes as well as the underlying technology that enables those processes.
The sum of the experiences discussed in this report showcase how SAP S/4HANA, running on-premise or in the cloud, can form the basis for a broad-based business transformation that does not require a big bang implementation to succeed.
Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
In April 2016, SAP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how enterprises are taking advantage of IoT, how IoT fits into broader digital transformation initiatives, and the role of immediate insights in realizing the benefits that IoT can deliver.
There’s strong evidence organizations are challenged by the opportunities presented by external information sources such as social media, government trend data, and sensor data from the Internet of Things (IoT). No longer content to use internal databases alone, they see big data resources augmented with external information resources as what they need in order to bring about meaningful change. According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.

This white paper examines the various threats faced by mid-sized businesses and explains why a comprehensive approach to protection and resilience makes good business sense, and helps IT managers benchmark their company’s security posture against their peers’.
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
This paper explains both UC and the attraction to the cloud or specifically UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service). Hosted communications is the only communications sector experiencing recent, consistent, year-over-year growth. The model offers businesses operational, financial and technical advantages. UCaaS offers a transformation in business communications and collaboration. There’s a lot of change taking place, and it is good news for business enterprises.
