Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity. Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management. As we receive inquiry on this area increasingly, it makes sense to assess this market.

Constant market shifts and changing customer preferences add to the challenge of outperforming your competitors and surpassing stakeholder expectations. But what can be done to steer your organization down the path to greater success? By now, we all know it’s not just historical reporting about the past that will provide the answers needed to drive a business forward. Everyone – from executives and analysts to frontline staff – must have access to insights about the future that will enable them to make the best decisions and take the actions needed to keep their organizations agile. This means the ability to peer into data, explore it, understand it, analyze it and produce insights that provide those aha moments and take actions on it. Such things cannot be done with multiple tools that are rigid, limiting and difficult to use. A new breed of business intelligence is required. Gone are the days when reports looked at singular issues, took possibly days or weeks to create, and required

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.

Gartner reports that 75% to 80% of organizations are using some form of agile project management process. Although agile project management has been around for many years, the way we adapt it has changed significantly, especially as project portfolio management (PPM) practices have evolved. In today’s businesses, technology plays a crucial role in our success, but technology can also make things more uncertain. This uncertainty has given us the motive to be more flexible and requires a “think on your feet” mentality. For this reason, we've seen a big spike in Agile PPM over the last few years. So how do we continue to deliver stability and efficiency, the result of traditional style PPM, while also giving in to necessary risks that lead to innovation and competitive edge? It’s simple: accept the value in each method, avoid the inevitable pains that may develop with segregation, and opt for a unified agile and traditional PPM model.

Businesses face greater uncertainty than ever. Market conditions, customer desires, competitive landscapes, and regulatory constraints change by the minute. So business success is increasingly contingent on predictive intelligence and hyperagile responsiveness to relentlessly evolving demands. This uncertainty has significant implications for the data center — especially as business becomes pervasively digital. IT has to support business agility by being more agile itself. It has to be able to add services, scale capacity up and down as needed, and nimbly remap itself to changes in organizational structure.

Businesses must become agile and provide differentiated service as customer demands and expectations change. Moving beyond simple phone transactions, customers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to their peers, the web and social media to find answers. Contact centers play a major role in determining the customer’s perception of a company. Often seen as brand ambassadors, agents are the main interaction point for customers. It is therefore critical that they deliver personalized communications in the channels that customers prefer. Businesses should use cloud technology to add multichannel tools and support growing demand for chat, social, SMS and video.

While just about everyone is writing about how IT and the businesses it serves need to be transformed, the actual industry answers to both digital and IT transformation remain unclear at best. Are transformational initiatives all about analytics and big data? Or are they about the move to cloud in all its varieties? Support for mobile? More agile ways of working and developing software? Or are they actually all about crafting teams to promote more proactive dialog between the business and IT? The truth is, of course, digital and IT transformation depend on all of the above and more. They also depend on a resilient infrastructure that’s easily adapted to changing business priorities without requiring long hours spent on maintenance, updates, and addressing problems of service availability. But making all this work clearly and cohesively is far beyond the purview of almost any solution today—whether from a software management perspective or from a hardware infrastructure perspective.

" One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization. In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure and processes to better meet business needs."

Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction. But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.
