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.

Need a Blueprint for Digital Transformation? An Enterprise Architect Can Help.

Posted by Myles Suer on June 28th, 2018

To create an agile, efficient enterprise, it pays to think big. And by big, I mean systematically like an enterprise architect, who creates IT infrastructures that support business strategies.

The job calls for both business knowledge and IT knowledge. And the architect can succeed only if the organization recognizes integration as a strategic capability, rather than as a series of discrete chores to be performed when developers have the time.

Coffee cup that reads: "Keep Calm and prepare for GDPR"

So far, we’ve published three posts on the scope, challenges and data obligations of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our most recent post focused on how Dell Boomi can help organizations address three of the six high-risk obligations identified by Dell Technologies that are imposed by the GDPR: record keeping, accountability and data retention.

But good “data hygiene” is critical to routine business activities beyond the GDPR.

The Challenge of Patient360: Supporting Systems of Engagement with Systems of Record

Posted by John Reeves on May 10th, 2018

When healthcare professionals talk about the benefits of a 360-degree view of the patient — or Patient360 — the discussion often ignores the complexities involved in pulling that off. Patient360 demands that organizations convert systems of record into systems of engagement. Or rather, it is about making it possible for new, modern systems of engagement to easily draw data from existing systems of record.

That, in turn, requires a platform that allows all the players in the healthcare lifecycle, which include payers, providers, third-party services used by either, and patients to exchange data securely with a minimum of friction.

In our previous post on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we explained that Dell Technologies has identified six high-risk obligations that organizations must meet for GDPR compliance. As an independent business unit of Dell, Inc., Dell Boomi has used this framework to assess how its unified platform can aid organizations as they prepare for the GDPR.

Boomi Master Data Hub provides organizations the ability to address three of the six high-risk obligations for GDPR: Record Keeping, the Accountability Principle and Data Retention.

Helping to Prepare for GDPR: Ready, Set, Go

Posted by Pragnya Paramita on April 25th, 2018

As we noted in our first post about the European Union’s update to its 1995 Data Protection Directive — the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) — many CIOs in the United States are expecting to spend a million dollars or more to comply with GDPR. [1]

It’s hard to quibble with that kind of money, but millions of dollars won’t be enough — unless they’re spent wisely. And that means CIOs need a plan.

For years, European financial services customers have demanded more choice, better deals and superior customer service from their banks. In 2018 their wish be will granted. The EU’s Open Banking initiative forces banks to expose their customer data and payments infrastructure to third parties. This means digital payments and deep spending insights will be fully available to customers for the first time.

Open banking brings about a whole new challenge. It is a cultural, as well as technological, shift.

The European Union (EU) Data Protection Directive was passed in 1995. However, it didn’t foresee all the changes that would happen because of the evolution of digital technology. As a result, an update was needed. And now it will be shortly. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018.

Though certainly not a fix for every aspect of the GDPR, data and application integration can play an important role in how organizations respond to GDPR requirements.

Financial Services is undergoing rapid change. Mobile banking and fintech systems are spurring the emergence of the European-led Open Banking initiative.

This is a significant development in existing regulations. While Open Banking aims to enhance customer protection and security, it also makes it possible for telcos, retailers and other companies to provide payment services. These organizations, with their ability to continually improve and differentiate their customer experiences, will likely disrupt the financial services industry.

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.
