In the emerging digital enterprise, there’s a good chance some application development will be taking place outside the information technology department. It’s not that the role of IT is in any way being diminished – in fact, IT managers are getting busier than ever, overseeing the technology strategies of their enterprises. Rather, the pieces are in place for business users to build and configure the essential business applications they need, on a self-service basis, with minimal or no involvement of their IT departments.
As the world moves deeper into an era of ongoing disruption from digital players – be they startups, or teams within established enterprises – technology has become an essential part of every job, from the boardroom to the boiler room. Accordingly, the discipline of IT is no longer confined to the data center or development shop. Many business managers and professionals are building, launching or downloading their own applications to achieve productivity and respond
Security is everyone’s job today, from consumers, to system administrators, to executives. If you are doing business, you need to elevate the priority of security across your organization and data center. Over the years, cybercriminals have gotten more advanced and better funded. They are entire teams of highly trained hackers, and they have built it into a very profitable business. Cybercrime is big business. In many cases, states have built their own cyberattack teams. These teams are no less important to their state strategies than their army or navy. And just like these cyber-attack teams are prepared to attack anyone, you too must be prepared to defend against anyone. Whether you know it or not, you are in a cyber war. You need to be prepared.
Digital disruption is fundamentally changing IT. Today’s organizations are under more pressure than ever to innovate fast and offer a superior experience to every customer.
In this white paper, we explore the advantages that a modernized data center can bring for IT organizations seeking to keep pace in a dynamic environment, and how a software-defined approach can help move them forward. Real-world examples showcase how VMware is enabling IT teams to develop future-proof strategies with a foundation that is ready for cloud environments as well as global expansion and customer acquisitions.

Driven by the acute imperative of digital transformation, enterprises and other organizations are adopting multicloud strategies as springboards to increase business agility and competitive differentiation. At the same time, monolithic application development is being superseded by microservices, which entail the decomposition of previously complex applications into independent, modular processes that communicate with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
In order to provide high quality, cost effective business services in complex, distributed environments, improved IT management strategies are required. Business Service Management (BSM) is a strategic approach to managing IT services in support of improved business performance.

With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.

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
