Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here The Road to a Cloud Adoption and Digital Transformation In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail - with "legacy" technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a leader in the space, it's necessary to accommodate, incorporate, and exploit the new breed of enterprise technologies - cloud, Big Data, and APIs.

SLAs and ITOps Modernization By Orlee Berlove How to modernize SLAs and ITOps “Tell me how you will measure me and I will tell you how I will behave.” Dr. Eliyahu Goldrat – The Goal Digital transformation will come from increased investments in technology. But, at the same time, it will also come from increased scrutiny and commitment to quality of the existing services. To ensure this outcome, companies must be committed to the quality spelled through common acronyms such as SLAs, MTTR and MTTD. While these concepts have been around since the time of gurus such as Edward Deming, they are as critical as ever to ensuring technology meets its goals and sets itself up correctly for the future. SLAs and ITOps can inform each other and bring about mutual modernization. This blog will look at SLAs and ITOps and their role in maintaining and modernizing IT. Additionally, the ... (more)

How to Power #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo #DX #IoT #SmartCities

“You can’t stop the incessant march of economics” – Bill Schmarzo Okay, so it’s probably not cool to quote oneself, but hey, this is my blog and I get to do what I want.  And for anyone who follows me knows, I love to “riff” on the game-changing power of economics.  The “economics of big data” – where the cost to store, manage and analyze data is 20x to 100x cheaper than traditional analytics – started this big data and data science craze.  But ultimately it is the economics of value, or to be specific, “value in use” where the economics really become a game changer. I recent article titled “The Simple Economics of Machine Intelligence” from the Harvard Business Review highlights very well the role that economics (maybe even more than data science) is going to play in separating the winners from the losers in digital transformation.  To quote the article: Machine int...
