Many CIOs recognize that cloud is a possible solution to achieving both but they are uncertain about the best way to

I progressi nel campo digitale rivoluzionano in profondità il nostro modo di lavorare, introducendo innovazioni nei nostri uffici praticamente ogni giorno. Queste tecnologie hanno alzato il livello delle aspettative, costringendo le aziende a operare con un'agilità senza precedenti.
Questi cambiamenti sono grandi opportunità, ma purtroppo ci imbattiamo anche in nuovi ostacoli che possono intralciare la nostra marcia verso il successo, come la necessità di innovare rapidamente, di minimizzare i costi e di reagire prontamente alle pressioni della concorrenza.
Per avere successo nella realtà competitiva di oggi, le aziende devono svincolarsi dai limiti imposti dall’infrastruttura IT legacy. L’acquisto di hardware e la manutenzione di enormi data center per l’esecuzione dei sistemi informatici appartengono al passato: la gestione e la manutenzione dell’infrastruttura sono semplicemente troppo costose.
Un recente sondaggio di Gartner ha rivelato che oltre l’80% dei CIO ritiene che l’Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) sia un’opzione perseguibile e il 10% degli stessi già la considera la scelta predefinita per l’infrastruttura. L’utilizzo di un’infrastruttura con un modello di servizio elastico e con pagamento in base al consumo non solo riduce i costi e le preoccupazioni, ma consente inoltre alle organizzazioni IT di dedicarsi all’innovazione per favorire la crescita aziendale.
To succeed in today’s competitive reality, businesses need to free themselves from the limitations of legacy IT infrastructure. The days of purchasing hardware and maintaining massive data centers to run IT must come to an end. Managing and maintaining your infrastructure is simply too expensive.
A recent Gartner survey found that more than 80 percent of CIOs consider Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to be a viable option and 10 percent of CIOs already consider it to be their default choice for infrastructure. Utilizing an infrastructure with an elastic, pay-as-you-go service model not only reduces costs and worries, but also frees IT organizations to innovate in ways that will enhance business growth.
So, while the advertising industry is in the midst of profound change, it’s hard to be certain about the form that it will take in future. There’s good reason to be optimistic, rather than pessimistic. Firstly, as we saw earlier, the proliferation of digital platforms means that there are now more canvases for creativity than ever before. And secondly, recent discoveries in psychology and behavioural science have highlighted how human decision making – in any context – is often unconscious or non-rational. As a result, the range of problems where creative communication can offer a solution is wider than ever previously realised.
Whether your company wants to grow by optimizing your current business model or transforming to introduce new revenue sources, you’re likely exploring a variety of digital tools designed to enhance and expand the organization. Leaders rely on CIOs and IT directors to recommend digital strategies and outline the benefits and challenges they can expect from new digital tools. For many businesses, the first step toward growth is deciding how ambitious their digital strategy should be in order to compete and succeed in today’s manufacturing market.
Technology leaders can help drive the company’s digital ambition by:
• Considering whether the business can support full digital transformation or more moderate optimization
• Observing digital trends across the industry and adjacent industries
• Evaluating your competitive position as it relates to your digital strategies

En un momento en que las empresas pretenden emular la agilidad de desarrollo de las compañías de Internet e innovar en mercados muy competitivos, el desarrollo de las aplicaciones se ha hecho cada vez más complejo. Los ingentes códigos fuente monolíticos que tradicionalmente acompañan a las aplicaciones empresariales ralentizan el lanzamiento de nuevos servicios. Además, la dispersión y aislamiento de los equipos de desarrollo y de operaciones dificultan la coordinación. A eso hay que añadirle que los usuarios son cada vez más exigentes y las empresas deben escalar y monitorizar las implementaciones para poder ofrecer una experiencia satisfactoria y un gran rendimiento. Todo ello, desde luego, sin interrumpir los servicios.

CIOs today face a delicate, difficult balancing act between meeting business objectives and securing information. Markets are becoming more global, product life cycles are shrinking, and profit margins are declining. Organisations need their finance, human resource, and planning systems to be agile and able to change as quickly as the business.
System complexity is increasing, though. Enterprises deploy more applications to more endpoints than ever before. Hackers have evolved from isolated sociopaths into highly organised groups relying on leading-edge technology. Finally, IT budgets are growing, albeit slowly: International Data Corp. (IDC) expects budgets to increase 3.4% in 2017. So many CIOs are struggling to find the resources needed to ward off attacks.
Per realizzare il lavoro, Digital Elektronik ha acquistato quattro robot Epson, che hanno completato l'attività in pochi mesi. Da allora Digital Elektronik ha impiegato i robot in nuove applicazioni, alcune simili e altre molto diverse, dimostrando così alcuni dei maggiori vantaggi offerti dai robot Epson: la versatilità e la possibilità di essere riutilizzati.
Volker Spanier, responsabile Factory Automation di Epson Germany, spiega: "Credo sia un ottimo esempio di come i robot Epson possono migliorare l'efficienza della linea di produzione e completare attività impossibili a mano. È bellissimo vedere i nostri robot che partecipano alla costruzione di un edificio così straordinario, che resisterà alla prova del tempo".

Limited visibility has tethered CIOs' success in both IT and business. However, using federated CMDB technology, CIOs can view the complete IT infrastructure and the entire lifecycle of a business service.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
In Q4, 2009, ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES (EMA) analysts worked with ASG to research how executives in IT and within the lines of business use dashboards to gain holistic insights into IT services as they impact business outcomes.

In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.

As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise.
