Digital transformation has arrived, and it’s creating unprecedented opportunities for companies of all sizes to become market leaders through the evolution of business processes and the creation of new products and services. Organizations that master digital transformation will see a dramatic increase in revenues and profitability by converging people, processes and technologies; those that do not will struggle to survive. Evidence of this is clear to see by looking at the churn in the biggest
companies in the world. For example, a Capgemini study found that since 2000, 52% of the Fortune 500 has disappeared through acquisitions or bankruptcies. The study also found that digital organizations control 70% of market share in all industries today. Therefore, making the shift to a digital business must be a top initiative for IT and business leaders.

In businesses and organizations across the world, rooms once humming with wires, black boxes and blinking lights now sit empty. In a lonely phone closet, there’s only dust, a single lonely terminal, or perhaps a foosball table where IT pros can let off steam.
The cloud – and more specifically, cloud communications – is the source of the transformation, which has fundamentally changed the IT landscape. Some IT pros have embraced it. Some are working on migrating to the cloud over time. And others, through choice or necessity, are sticking with a premises-based approach.
Read on to find out why some IT pros are shopping for game tables to go in empty server rooms while others are untangling wires and watching blinking lights—and which cases make the most sense for each approach.
When it comes to investing in ERP systems, improving the efficiency and responsiveness of business processes is a top concern for SAP customers. However, among IT professionals, safe delivery is of higher priority than ERP digitalization or starting an IT agility transformation.
With SAP S/4HANA, this no longer needs to be a compromise. When moving to SAP S/4HANA, IT professionals need to implement not only the technical upgrade of SAP S/4HANA but also the required customizations, which necessitate an intensive amount of business collaboration and software delivery. And for that to happen, IT needs an enterprise agile delivery solution to gather and implement the business requirements to SAP S/4HANA as quickly as possible without business disruption.

Digital transformation is a reality for marketers that is wrapped in both opportunities and headaches. Marketers understand the choices and expectations that their customers now have, and they are up for the challenge. But marketers also have many obstacles to overcome to deliver the consistently good, timely and engaging customer experience, across devices, that customers demand.
The good news is that the marketing technology industry is rapidly evolving to address these challenges. And in the same way that consumers have an abundance of choices, marketers also have many options when it comes to choosing partners to help. But where to start, and how to choose the right partners?
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is the backbone of modern manufacturing information systems, enabling the digital transformation that’s changing operations and customer expectations. As the movement toward a digital workplace evolves, your ERP system must keep pace.

Digital transformation is important in today’s hyper-competitive world. But successful digital transformation requires a new approach, combining agile, direct-to-cloud connectivity, strong security anywhere your systems touch the internet, and the ability to control and manage it all efficiently.
If your networking approach is inconsistent or labor intensive, it’s time for a change. You need the strongest security possible that doesn’t get in the way of connectivity, fast internet connections to support the use of cloud apps like Office 365 (without relying on MPLS), and a sensible way to control and manage it all efficiently.
Read “Modernizing the Distributed Enterprise Network” to learn how Forcepoint NGFW supports digital transformation efforts both now and in the future—all within a single solution.
Digital transformation (DX) has progressed well beyond the abundant hype predicting it to where it is now an existential concern for many enterprises. We are at an inflection point as digital transformation efforts shift from "project" or "initiative" status to strategic business imperatives. Growing enterprises,
regardless of age or industry, are striving to become "digital native" in the way their executives and employees think, what they produce, and how they operate. IDC predicts that by 2021, at least 50% of global GDP will be digitized, with growth in every industry driven by digitally enhanced offerings, operations, and relationships, and that by 2020, investors will use platform/ecosystem, data value, and customer engagement metrics as valuation factors for all enterprises.

The four steps for digital transformation
Today, digital is everywhere—cloud, mobile, social and the Internet
of Things are changing the way we all work and play.
This rapidly evolving digital world is also redefining the relationship between your
business and your customers, who now expect a convenient, interactive experience
from their preferred brands. Security is also a concern. Risk is rising, as both the
enterprise and its customers exchange a growing amount of sensitive data.
This transformation is also amplifying competition. As analyst Mark Raskino notes,
“As a consequence, all players rebuilt their strategies around the same time, and all
have awakened to the power of digital business at the same time. Contention is
In the digital economy, application programming interfaces
(APIs) are essential for executing ideas quickly and seizing new
business opportunities. They are the building blocks of digital
transformation, enabling organizations to deliver exceptional
customer experiences, create new revenue streams and connect
employees, partners, apps and devices to data—anytime,
APIs are not necessarily a new technology, but in today’s digital
world, they have risen in prominence and become important
to every facet of the enterprise. This in turn has increased the
demand for effective API management. But what does an effective
solution look like?
The API Management Playbook will help you understand:
• Why digital transformation is crucial in the application economy
• How APIs are the building blocks of digital transformation
• Which key stakeholders in your organization are impacted by APIs
• What the API lifecycle is and how it relates to API management

Oggi la tecnologia digitale è ovunque: cloud, mobility, social network e Internet of Things stanno cambiando il modo in cui tutti noi lavoriamo e ci divertiamo. Questo mondo digitale in rapida evoluzione sta anche rimodellando il rapporto tra le aziende e i clienti, che ora si aspettano dai propri brand preferiti un'esperienza utile e interattiva. Anche la sicurezza è motivo di preoccupazione. Azienda e clienti si scambiano un volume in continuo aumento di dati sensibili, aumentando i fattori di rischio.La trasformazione del mercato sta inoltre intensificando la concorrenza. Come osserva l'analista Mark Raskino, "Come conseguenza, tutti i contendenti hanno rielaborato le proprie strategie e si sono risvegliate alla potenza del business digitale nello stesso momento. Il conflitto è quindi inevitabile.
Nell'economia digitale, le API (Application Programming Interfaces) sono essenziali per concretizzare rapidamente le idee e approfittare delle nuove opportunità di business. Rappresentano la chiave per la digital transformation, consentendo alle aziende di offrire una customer experience eccezionale, creare nuovi flussi di ricavi e permettere a dipendenti, partner, app e device di accedere ai dati ovunque e in qualsiasi momento.Le API non sono necessariamente una nuova tecnologia, ma nel mondo digitale di oggi hanno assunto una particolare rilevanza in ogni aspetto del business. Questo ha accresciuto l'esigenza di implementare una soluzione di API Management realmente efficace. Ma quali sono le caratteristiche di una soluzione efficace?
Die Welt ist heute digital – Cloud, Mobilität, Social Media und das Internet of Things verändern Arbeit und Freizeit für jeden. Diese sich schnell weiterentwickelnde digitale Welt definiert auch die Beziehung zwischen Ihrem Unternehmen und Ihren Kunden neu. Die Kunden erwarten von ihren bevorzugten Marken heute eine komfortable, interaktive User Experience. Auch die Security ist ein wichtiges Anliegen. Die Risiken wachsen, da Unternehmen und Kunden immer mehr vertrauliche Daten austauschen.Diese Transformation verstärkt auch den Wettbewerb. In den Worten des Analysten Mark Raskino: „Daher revidierten alle Akteure ihre Strategien ungefähr gleichzeitig, und allen wurde die Macht der digitalen Wirtschaft etwa zur gleichen Zeit bewusst. Konkurrenz ist also unvermeidlich.“
In der digitalen Wirtschaft sind Anwendungsprogrammierschnittstellen (APIs) unerlässlich, um Ideen schnell umzusetzen und neue Geschäftschancen zu nutzen. Sie sind die Bausteine der digitalen Transformation und ermöglichen es Unternehmen, eine herausragende Customer Experience bereitzustellen, neue Umsatzquellen zu erschließen und Mitarbeiter, Partner, Anwendungen und Geräte jederzeit und überall mit Daten zu verbinden.APIs sind nicht unbedingt eine neue Technologie, aber in der heutigen digitalen Welt ist ihre Bedeutung gewachsen, und sie sind für jeden Aspekt des Unternehmens wichtig geworden.

Aujourd’hui, le numérique est omniprésent : Cloud, appareils mobiles, réseaux sociaux et Internet des objets modifient notre manière de travailler et de nous divertir. Ce monde numérique en évolution rapide redéfinit également la relation entre l’entreprise et ses clients, ces derniers exigeant désormais de leurs marques préférées toute la commodité d’une expérience interactive. La sécurité est également au cœur des préoccupations. Les risques croissent à mesure qu’augmente le volume de données sensibles échangées entre les entreprises et leurs clients.Cette transformation a aussi pour effet d’amplifier la concurrence. Comme le remarque l’analyste Mark Raskino, « L’une des conséquences est que tous les acteurs se mettent à réévaluer leurs stratégies à peu près au même moment ; tous réalisent en même temps la formidable puissance du numérique. La concurrence est donc inévitable. »
