The pressure is on CEOs, CFOs and CIOs to cut costs, leverage the investments in legacy systems and keep the business running while remaining competitive and relevant. Every department must plan to modernize and leverage cloud, big data, analytics and digital strategies. When most people think of digital strategies they often think of mobile and social media – however, today’s digital is inclusive of most every system in place.
More and more companies are focusing on digitizing their processes and corporate assets. Such digitization can be a cumbersome and expensive process – including hardware, software and services. The process of evaluation and development needs to be conducted in an agile iterative process including modern methodologies – both Agile and DevOps.
Enterprises are also challenged with an aging IT workforce which is fluent in legacy systems/technologies and business processes but may not have yet embraced or been properly trained in the new age of digitization. Many haven’t replenished their workforce in years with the next generation of IT talent who are fluent with the latest technology environments.
