Your organization, like every other, must grow to survive, and is dependent upon its IT infrastructure to do that. Your organization, like every other, is also dependent upon some custom-built applications, since none can survive or grow by relying solely on unmodified off-the-shelf solutions. And custom applications require IT guidance and resources to be built, deployed and maintained. But your organization must also curb or eliminate growth in IT related costs and operational challenges.

Your enterprise needs the ability to identify all duplicative or outmoded IT and business applications, services and other resources, and then to consolidate those worth keeping, migrate those worth updating, and retiring the rest. And that consolidation delivers multiple business benefits. Key among these: a single interface to multiple tools and resources, and more agile global operations. With the right practices, policies and technology platform, your enterprise can accomplish these goals in ways that accelerate growth, cut costs and complexities, and enhance competitiveness.

For many years, traditional businesses have had a systematic set of processes and practices for deploying, operating and disposing of tangible assets and some forms of intangible asset. Through significant growth in our inquiry discussions with clients, and in observing increased attention from industry regulators, Gartner now sees the recognition that information is an asset becoming increasingly pervasive. At the same time, CDOs and other data and analytics leaders must take into account both internally generated datasets and exogenous sources, such as data from partners, open data and content from data brokers and analytics marketplaces, as they come to terms with the ever-increasing quantity and complexity of information assets. This task is clearly impossible if the organization lacks a clear view of what data is available, how to access it, its fitness for purpose in the contexts in which it is needed, and who is responsible for it.

Cancelling the ERP vendor's maintenance agreement isn't right for everyone.

However, cancelling can play an important role in enabling an enterprise to run current mature application releases more cost-effectively, shift funds to business growth initiatives, and position itself flexibly for the best-fit future application platform. Download this Gartner report to learn more about what to consider before cancelling your ERP Vendor's Maintenance Agreement and Switching to Third-Party Support.

Cloud-first, mobile-first organizations are seeing huge benefits from taking a more distributed approach to IT. Business units are given more freedom to evaluate and select SaaS applications that will enable efficiency and growth. Users are given more freedom to use the devices that make them the most productive. When this trend started, most IT organizations were able to implement some basic, manual processes to administer and govern IT in this best-of-breed distributed environment. However, as the number of touchpoints increases, IT needs to automate to keep pace. This paper goes into more detail on the top 5 reasons to automate identity lifecycle and identity administration and build a solid foundation for future cloud-first, mobile-first IT.

The security perimeter once familiar to the enterprise has become incredibly fragmented. Data and applications reside everywhere: on the network, endpoints and in the cloud. The cloud, in particular, is seeing huge growth with enterprises adopting these environments at a rapid pace. According to Gartner, 55 percent of large enterprises will successfully implement an all-in cloud SaaS strategy by 2025.1 Combined with an increasingly mobile and global workforce, and more importantly, increasingly distributed SaaS cloud environments, organizations are now faced with securing a multitude of applications, users, devices and networks – all hosting sensitive data that is critical to business growth, reputation and customer trust.

Business executives and managers at business-to-business (B2B) enterprises care about time, money, competitive advantage, customer loyalty and growth. Few pay much attention to the vital IT infrastructure that supports transactions and collaboration with trading partners—though that B2B backbone directly affects performance and profitability. In fact, just 26 percent of business managers view B2B integration as a competitive differentiator, according to a study for IBM by Vanson Bourne, a research consultancy. As a result, many enterprises continue to utilize manual and error-prone emails, faxes and file transfers for B2B transactions. Reliance on complex, brittle and antiquated systems to exchange critical data impacts time to market, cost-efficiency and satisfaction across suppliers and end-customers. Modernization of B2B integration in recent years has moved forward in fits and starts, often undermined by competing priorities and misalignment between business and IT managers.

After several years of relentless hardware and software innovation, the mainframe is at an inflection point from being a supporting platform of transaction revenue to becoming a source of revenue growth and innovation. Organizations are evolving toward what IDC calls the “connected mainframe.” The platform is transforming from a revenue-supporting machine into a revenue-generating machine and is increasingly playing a central role in organizations’ digital transformation (DX) journey. Key steps in achieving the connected mainframe require organizations to modernize and integrate the platform with their internal and external environments. IDC finds that these modernization and integration initiatives lead to new business innovations, which in turn are driving revenue growth and improving organizational operational efficiency.
