CIOs nowadays need to partner with business leaders to quickly identify and integrate new platforms, and deliver business results and develop the skills to create a culture of consistent innovation.
How should they do to modernize IT delivery and infrastructure to enable digital business? They need to optimize IT investment and deliver more business value for every dollar spent. At the same time, the business demands they extend the technology core to be digital-ecosystem ready, e.g. to encompass unstructured data into BI/Analytics.
2 key things they need to start with:
- Provide open data access across new and traditional systems: build the data foundation for digital business
- Optimize a hybrid cloud infrastructure: with a secure, hybrid infrastructure, integrated across multi-vendor clouds and on-premises apps and systems.
