1 The Digital Enterprise has arrived Hybrid Cloud is the foundation.
2 Cloud computing is the foundation for your digital enterprise platform, but the obstacles to adoption are real. Migrating legacy environments, integrating old and new systems, and dealing with an increasingly complex ecosystem of technology providers, service providers and integrators is a daunting task. Customer digital footprints or "Code Halos" are creating massive amounts of unstructured data. Digital enterprises are combining traditional sources of data from internal systems with digital footprints to create greater customer intimacy; choosing the right platforms, tools and services is critical. To be successful in the digital age, enterprises will take advantage of the multiplier effect made possible by the convergence of cloud computing, social media, big data, and mobile. And as with any construction project, the first step is to build a solid foundation for your digital business. That foundation is Hybrid Cloud infrastructure.
3 Social media provides platforms for engaging customers and partners at a very intimate level. Digital enterprises are evolving existing platforms and integrating social media into their customer support, data architecture and big data analytics capabilities to create a deeper level of customer engagement. The proliferation of mobile devices has created a work-anywhere, buy-anywhere global business culture. Digital enterprises develop mobile application strategies that tightly align with their cloud, data, and social strategies to create greater customer intimacy and employee empowerment. Convergent Technology Advisors helps enterprises navigate the complex emerging technology space by helping companies acquire the right technologies, engage the right partners, and develop and execute a successful transformation strategy. For technology providers, Convergent Technology Advisors helps companies develop the right partnerships, skills and organization to successfully deliver complete technology solutions for customers.
