Key Topics

From Digital Transformation to Digital-First Business — Navigating the Ever-Changing Landscape

Although the era of digital transformation continues, we've now entered the digital business era. To remain competitive, companies must constantly adapt their business models and platforms. Digital businesses are part of vast ecosystems that effortlessly create and deliver new products, services, and experiences to dynamic markets and customer bases. In this new world, IT is the foundation of the enterprise, and CIOs must oversee IT in novel ways as digital technology spreads throughout the organization and its networks.

The Orchestration of IT and Business — a.k.a., Ubiquitous IT

Will every employee soon be an IT professional? Is every manager going to turn into a CIO? Who can best align the potential of technology with the needs and mission of the organization? In a world of ubiquitous IT, how do you balance the demands of CIOs with the technological appetite and growing expertise of users?

Automation as a Resource

Organizations are still unlocking the full potential of artificial intelligence and advanced automation. These technologies offer much more tangible, realistic, and achievable results if we think of them as the resources that enterprise IT lacks.

Data from the Front Line

It's time to redefine edge computing. Making decision making as fast and objective as possible requires not only a wide variety and volume of data, but also its availability in real time and from the primary sources and interfaces that generate it.

Resilience in the Spotlight

The effects of the COVID pandemic highlighted the importance of resilience. Once relied upon for crisis situations, it has become a necessaity for organizations to remain competitive. This is because strengthening resilience has a positive impact on business areas and organizational disciplines that go far beyond the IT dimension.

The Never-Ending CAPEX/OPEX Story, or the Pitfalls of Flexible Consumption Models

In theory, the unlimited scaling of capacity and consumption should be the main benefit of cloud services. But after years of adoption, it turns out that not all of cloud's benefits have arrived in the expected form. How flexible is the cloud model when organizations are struggling to cut costs on all fronts? And what role does FinOps play in cloud adoption?

Green IT Becomes Clean IT

Sustainability is permeating the approaches and strategies of corporate IT. Within five years, the utilization of so-called clean technologies will be a matter of course for CIOs, along with selecting responsible suppliers and obtaining/disclosing a transparent measurement of the organization's environmental footprint.
