In the digital economy, big IT budgets, lots of brick sand mortar and an established market presence are no longer at the foundation of a competitive advantage. What matters now is the agility and speed to ensure that customer centricity is supported as an overriding priority of business operations and decision making. Game-changing ideas are developing and competitive threats are emerging at a rapid and unpredictable pace. The resulting digital disruption is not just occurring at the margins or within isolated pockets of industry and commerce. It’s the new normal and its consequences are far reaching. The essential question for every organization in every sector is simply: Will we be the disruptor or will we allow ourselves to be the disrupted?

Over the last few years, Software as a Service (SaaS) has become a compelling and credible delivery model for business applications. SaaS, also referred to as “On-Demand” or “Cloud Computing”, eliminates many of the barriers that keep companies from implementing or upgrading their software, and can help you reduce costs. More importantly, it enables you to focus on your core business operations instead of managing IT. So Cloud-based ERP may be right for your business, but where do you start?

Application consolidation can be an important cloud initiative. By consolidating applications on an all-flash, cloud-centric platform, IT has the opportunity to reduce costs, lower risk and support a more integrated and interoperable infrastructure. But for any organization thinking about application consolidation, it is important to closely evaluate the features and functions of the underlying all-flash storage platform. You want to make sure that your platform not only delivers the performance you need, but also enables you to reduce costs, eliminate migrations, simplify operations and support cloud-enabled business agility.

Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience. Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many aspects of store and enterprise operations. An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ

As enterprises have embraced IT trends like cloud computing and virtualization, their operational needs have evolved to make application performance more important than ever before. But operating applications at peak performance is challenging in the cloud. That's why many enterprise IT departments now have Applications Operations groups tasked with ensuring that applications run efficiently across these complex IT stacks. But, most tools designed to address these application performance management (APM) issues were never designed for this dynamic environment. To achieve smooth delivery of applications at all times, Applications Operations groups need APM solutions that can give them insight and analytics to manage their apps. This SlashGuide gives IT managers a scorecard to identify APM solutions that will deliver more efficient application performance.
