Enterprise IT challenges
The way customers are interacting with businesses has fundamentally changed. Today’s customers are connected via mobile devices, plugged into the social network, and doing their own research. Employees are embracing the “bring your own device” (BYOD) concept and are utilizing their tablets and mobile phones to improve productivity.
Enterprises are cognizant of the power of these trends that are radically transforming the business landscape. But the adoption of agile, innovative and disruptive technologies is causing enterprises to break sweat in the way they operate forcing them to adapt or perish. CIOs are having sleepless nights thinking about how to deal with the new normal:
- Users are demanding fast and engaging enterprise applications that go beyond providing merely a utilitarian experience
- Employees are now using more than one device for their work and expect enterprise applications to work well across different form factors.
- Employees and partners expect a seamless integrations across applications due to API-driven experiences in the consumer world.
- Business teams want to broaden innovation by making app creation possible for non-developers too.
- Traditional application delivery can rarely get to all of the custom apps that the business needs causing business units to create their own apps, resulting in shadow IT.
- Many organizations are dealing with shrinking IT budgets due to the current economic climate and constant focus on increasing revenues—without additional investment.
Businesses can no longer afford the status quo. The competition is constantly innovating, so standing still is equivalent to moving backwards. It is time to face this new dynamic and begin to plan for your organization’s digital transformation.
As a result, Enterprise IT teams are looking at utilizing modern technology platforms to drive digital transformation and innovation that would allow them to solve business problems, transform business needs into realization via apps (web, mobile), digitize experiences and operations.
