“In order to capture digital revenue streams, develop smarter products, and deliver the vastly improved experiences that customers expect, companies—including their IT departments—need to undergo significant transformation. Along with running large enterprise applications for automation, companies need to continuously develop the consumer-grade mobile applications and embedded software that will transform their products, their services, and the ways in which they engage with the world.
All of this must be done, while simultaneously lowering costs, and refining the performance of older applications and the infrastructure on which they run. The only way to achieve both of these goals—innovate and optimize—is to transform the technology we use to deliver IT services. This begins with bringing down the cost and effort involved in running the older automation software packages—the SAPs and Microsofts of the world—so that IT can shift its human and financial resources toward other investments that help make possible the more transformational aspects of the business: ever-changing mobile experiences, better data analytics, and deeper innovation around products and services.”
