DevOps (short for development and operations), like most new approaches, is only a buzzword for many people. Everyone talks about it, but not everyone knows what it is. In broad terms, DevOps is an approach based on lean and agile principles in which business owners and the development, operations, and quality assurance departments collaborate to deliver software in a continuous manner that enables the business to more quickly seize market opportunities and reduce the time to include customer feedback. Indeed, enterprise applications are so diverse and composed of multiple technologies, databases, end-user devices, and so on, that only a DevOps approach will be successful when dealing with these complexities. Opinions differ on how to use it, however. Some people say that DevOps is for practitioners only; others say that it revolves around the cloud. IBM takes a broad and holistic view and sees DevOps as a business-driven software delivery approach  — an approach that takes a new or en

Massive shifts within the digital business landscape are sparking immense opportunities and reshaping every sector. In some cases, complete upheaval is happening at lightning-fast speed.

Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning. The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business (LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy. IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs, systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning require new servers with new capabilities? We believe that many of these questions can be

Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile, social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does. From an IT perspective, there is a fairly straightforward sequence of applications that businesses can adopt over time that will help put direction into this journey. IDC outlines this sequence to e

Data is the lifeblood of business. And in the era of digital business, the organizations that utilize data most effectively are also the most successful.

Sometimes a perfect storm comes together to signal a radical shift or rebirth of an industry. But it’s not enough to say public relations is in flux or rapidly changing. It’s more impactful to discuss the evolution of the change, understand the potential gaps, and be early to capitalize on opportunities created by these gaps. The path for change in the PR industry has been tumultuous. And understandably so. The irrationality of basing performance on vanity metrics is so ingrained in the profession that the left-brain, rational piece has been pushed aside. This has created a culture of estimating based on vanity metrics like AVE (ad value equivalency), leading to a dynamic where the C-suite craves that WSJ or TechCrunch story, yet doesn’t believe PR’s reporting on the value of that coverage. When everyone in the marketing stack is crunching numbers and showing real, tangible value, PR is holding onto air. Why keep setting the profession up for failure by perpetuating the cycle of abstr

Context can make or break the communication – and, ultimately, the relationship – between a consumer and a brand. Today’s consumers expect relevant communications that speak directly to their needs in the moment. We have the technology today to deliver such messages – but there are significant barriers to developing relevant, contextual programs of this kind. Some of the development challenges represent new versions of old challenges. Take data as an example: it has always been hard to harness data from different sources and to leverage insights in real time. But today, there are additional opportunities – if not expectations – for marketers to use contextual data to better reach and engage customers through the optimal channel(s).

Testing is critical to the success of any application. In fact, your software is only as good as the testing team behind it and their ability to identify bugs before they find their way into production. Practically speaking, that means that building and nurturing an effective testing team is mission critical. But, of course, doing so is a lot easier said than done. That's because to be successful, today’s testing teams need to be cross-functional, efficient, and focused on the right things. They also have to be fully bought in and worthy of deep trust. As a result, finding the right candidates can be a challenge, so you have to get creative. Not only that, to attract and retain the best talent, you need to keep them motivated by giving them ample opportunities to learn and advance their career, while not weighing them down with the burden of time-consuming and unnecessary administrative tasks. Instead, you want to equip your team with the right tools to enable and empower them.

It used to be that you would build out your datacenter with all the right considerations in place, purchasing equipment that was sized to meet the needs of your organization for today and the near term future.

IDC believes that software-defined storage (SDS) continues to transform IT deployment and consumption of storage resources. For enterprises, SDS is really an on-ramp to deploying a hybrid cloud — one that allows a metered on-demand consumption of private and public cloud resources. Deploying SDS therefore is not a question of "if" but a question of "when."

The headwinds facing traditional and online retailers in 2017 are numerous and well documented. Chief among the challenges: a sustained assault on established business models driven by changing consumer behavior and the competitive might of e-commerce giant Amazon. Large big-box players, such as Walmart and Target, are responding to the threat - and embracing the opportunity of e-commerce - by boosting online spending by hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars annually. Yet even the largest and most well-resourced players can’t simply spend their way to success. Competing with Amazon and adjusting to the changing demands of consumers means taking a hard look at the engines driving e-commerce and digital marketing operations, scouring for missed opportunities, and investing in the technologies that will fuel the innovations of tomorrow.
