"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past.
Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."
As IT departments’ lists of backlogged application development projects keep growing, so does the speed of new development requests from line-of-business personnel. For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.

Agile integration — combining integration technologies, Agile delivery
techniques, and cloud-native platforms to improve speed and security
of software delivery — is a critical foundation for successful digital
transformation. The pace of digital innovation and disruption continues
to accelerate, driving the need for faster change to business models,
processes, and applications. Firms that can quickly reconfigure and
reconnect old and new applications have the advantage, and those with
slow integration processes are at serious risk of losing customers. An
Agile combination of integration and custom development is needed
to meet the customer’s expectations and avoid losing market share to
competitors that do put the customer first.1
For this study, we assessed
the differences between successful and less successful Agile integration
and app delivery strategies, why some firms can change their business
faster, and what makes one integration strategy better than another.

Learning content is an investment and with most companies having a portfolio of over $18 million tied up in content, this represents a significant investment. Unfortunately, this investment depreciates at an alarming rate. In fact, most content is completely unusable for any number of reasons after only four years.
Infopro Learning has created a guide that helps companies to extend the shelf life of their content using a modernization strategy. This strategy not only applies to the one-time effort of updating legacy content, but it also provides information about how to future-proof new content. In addition, companies that follow the modernization strategy can significantly decrease content production costs and timelines by leveraging evergreen content that already exists in their training portfolio.

Even with the latest devices, your mobile workforce may not have
what they need to get the job done. Without a strategy to provide them with data and applications, they’re forced to work without them or find workarounds that can compromise security.
