It’s very common for businesses to try to be all things to all people. And, obviously, some have been very successful at it. Remember how Amazon started? Books. Now you can buy just about anything from Amazon — including groceries.

QAD has chosen a different path. This maker of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is focused on one industry —manufacturing. It serves only the largest companies, and as a result, is best in its class.

Low-code workflow automation platforms speed delivery of applications and workflows. And, as businesses recognize that these platforms can scale, their use increases. But their value is diminished if the platforms can’t connect across your application and data ecosystem.

A best of breed workflow automation platform may rapidly create workflows to automate business processes, but if it can’t easily connect to other SaaS application or an on-premise database, it just creates another problem to solve — integration.

In an earlier post, I wrote about the five things that any enterprise should do before embarking on a cloud migration project. This post focuses on another aspect of cloud migration: Agile development.

If you’re working on a cloud migration project, you need to be thinking about Agile development practices. Why? Because the cloud is dependent upon Agile development. And there’s a big benefit to adopting Agile processes: they streamline cloud migration, helping your organization get to the cloud more quickly and innovate more easily once you get there.

As Oracle customers migrate from legacy on-premise systems to Oracle Fusion Cloud, integration can pose an obstacle.

It’s an accepted truth that applications deployed one or two decades ago simply can’t deliver the performance, agility or efficiency necessary to keep up with the demands of today’s changing business climate. As such, smart organizations are rebuilding their application portfolios and migrating to the cloud.

At Slalom, we partner with companies like Boomi and our mutual customers to push the boundaries of what’s possible — together. We provide strategic guidance and technical expertise for companies large and small, across the U.S.

On Wednesday, March 20, 2018, Salesforce announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire MuleSoft for approximately $6.5 billion. Salesforce indicates that MuleSoft will power what it is calling its new “Salesforce integration cloud.”

That is a great vision and promise. It is one that we enthusiastically support. The best news? The Integration Cloud is available today. It’s been here for more than a decade. It’s called Boomi.

In 2006 Boomi pioneered the integration cloud market.

Across the globe extreme weather events and natural disasters routinely bring disruption, chaos and economic hardship to communities and businesses.

For example, in New Zealand where my IT consultancy Adaptiv Integration is headquartered, hard-working teams in the utility and local and central government sectors face constant pressure to respond 24x7x365 to the impact of natural and man-made events. And not always successfully.

Natural catastrophe and extreme weather events have topped the list of perceived risks to New Zealand in the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks report for 2018.

As cloud technology and business practices evolve, it is important to capture the strategies that are working for chief information officers. To do this, I reached out to the followers of #CIOChat that I host on Twitter. I asked CIOs for their current thinking on public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud. We discussed how organizations can best take advantage of this fundamental technology shift. Hopefully, their insights prove valuable to you.

The State of Cloud Strategy

Most CIOs say they are currently carrying out a mixed cloud strategy and that the cloud-first approach is a relatively new development.

For companies interested in being “cloud-first,” most of the discussions out in the Googlesphere focus on managing the challenges of incrementally — to one degree or another —  moving your organization to this ideal future state.

But for companies that either begin life as a cloud-first company or have made an all-or-nothing transition, there isn’t so much guidance available about what to do once you have gone “all cloud.” However, a recent Dell Boomi case study about our customer, Moderna Therapeutics, provides invaluable perspectives and insights for companies that are already all-cloud or about to do so.
