To meet the business imperative for enterprise integration and stay competitive, companies must manage the increasing variety, volume and velocity of new data pouring into their systems from an ever-expanding number of sources. They need to bring all their corporate data together, deliver it to end users as quickly as possible to maximize its value, and integrate it at a more granular level than ever before—focusing on the individual transaction level, rather than on general summary data. As data volumes continue to explode, clients must take advantage of a fully scalable information integration architecture that supports any type of data integration technique such as extract, transfer and load (ETL), data replication or data virtualization.

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.

Business leaders are eager to harness the power of big data. However, as the opportunity increases, ensuring that source information is trustworthy and protected becomes exponentially more difficult. If not addressed directly, end users may lose confidence in the insights generated from their data—which can result in a failure to act on opportunities or against threats. Information integration and governance must be implemented within big data applications, providing appropriate governance and rapid integration from the start. By automating information integration and governance and employing it at the point of data creation, organizations can boost confidence in big data. A solid information integration and governance program must become a natural part of big data projects, supporting automated discovery, profiling and understanding of diverse data sets to provide context and enable employees to make informed decisions. It must be agile to accommodate a wide variety of data and seamle

With the growing demand of business for tighter communication and collaboration with external parties such as business partners and customers, IT has to provide the technical foundation for such integration. Web Access Management and Identity Federation are key technologies for that evolution. They enable organizations to manage access both from and to external systems, including cloud services, in a consistent way. Organizations have to move forward towards strategic approaches to enabling that integration, in support of the Extended and Connected Enterprise.

In the digital era, businesses in every industry are becoming technology companies. New business models such as “product as a service” (in which traditional manufacturers and distributors are driving new revenue streams by integrating software-based services into their offerings) and new operational models, such as collaboration, social business, and mobile platforms, mean that nearly every company is deriving at least part of its revenue from cloudbased solutions. So, why are so many of these new cloud solution providers building their businesses on shaky foundations? The truth is, when your business is based in the cloud, you need more than on-demand leased compute and storage capacity. You need a cloud that is enterprise-grade, secure, and resilient. Equally important—and overlooked by too many cloud solution providers—you need a cloud platform that is able to grow your business into the future, supporting next-generation functionality like Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Today, SAP’s solution portfolio looks very different and addresses different business needs than the SAP of a few years ago. Instead of primarily managing back-office enterprise resource planning (ERP) processes such as finance and the supply chain, SAP is evolving into a new type of software company that’s poised to enable digital business. Numerous acquisitions — including leading eCommerce solution hybris and cloud solutions Ariba, Concur, and SuccessFactors — and a new platform strategy based on SAP Hana, an in-memory computing solution, mean that the SAP core is positioned to support real-time digital business in the era of connected everything.

Digital transformation (DX) continues to headline business initiatives as companies look to remain competitive in the rapidly changing IT landscape. Organizations are increasingly investing in and implementing next-generation applications and architectures such as software-defined IT and hybrid IT to drive higher levels of efficiency and agility. These modern technologies and architectures, however, also require organizations to evolve their underlying infrastructure to support new capabilities and demands. Recent strength in the server market, which continues to operate in a marketwide refresh cycle, illustrates the growing demand for new infrastructure. 1Q18 marked the server market's fifth consecutive quarter of both shipment and revenue growth and represented a fourth consecutive quarter of year-on-year ASP growth, as customers continue to replace aging server infrastructure with more powerful and efficient systems that leverage the latest platform developments from processor supp

Moving major, business-supporting applications to the cloud can be a challenge for a variety of reasons. You may have concerns about the physical migration of data, as data loss or business disruption stemming from a migration issue would be a disaster for the business. Security is another typical concern, as a data breach of your most sensitive applications—like SAP or Oracle— could prove highly damaging. Akin to security, data sovereignty is an issue for many businesses. Stringent compliance laws in some jurisdictions are dictating data “residency”; and in the cloud, it is not always clear where the data is housed. Among managed cloud service users, 68% state that using such services helps them to better manage resource allocation and make SAP and Oracle costs more predictable. In this paper, we will look at common concerns over deploying and optimally managing business-critical, legacy applications in the cloud. We consider the benefits of managed cloud services, and how your
