“Driving Digital” Guides CIOs Through Digital Transformation

Isaac Sacolick knows a thing or two about being a CIO. He’s been a CIO himself at businesses like BusinessWeek and McGraw-Hill Construction (now <a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="https://www.construction.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Dodge Data and Analytics</a>). And he runs a consultancy, <a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="http://www.starcio.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">StarCIO</a>, where he works with CIOs from various industries as they tackle the work of digital transformation. Sacolick has distilled his knowledge about the changing role of a CIO and best practices for digital transformation into a recently published book, <a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="https://www.amazon.com/Driving-Digital-Business-Transformation-Technology/dp/0814438601/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><em>Driving Digital: The Leader’s Guide to Business Transformation Through Technology</em></a>. The book covers a broad range of topics — everything from how to structure and staff agile development projects to finally getting data integration right after decades of committing “data sins.” Here’s a quick look at Sacolick’s advice for leading digital transformation initiatives. <h2>Setting the Stage for Digital Transformation</h2> The best place to begin with digital transformation is the role of the CIO itself. That role has changed dramatically in recent years. It’s no longer limited to supporting business units with the operational hardware and software they request. Now, it’s the CIO's responsibility to guide those business units through sometimes sweeping transformations that take advantage of new technologies such as the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) to radically improve the way they serve customers. As Sacolick told Forbes Magazine, “Digital transformation is not just about technology and its implementation. It’s about looking at the business strategy through the lens of technical capabilities and [seeing] how that changes how you are operating and generating revenues.” IT no longer plays a mere supporting role for business strategy. Instead, it reshapes the strategy and perhaps the entire organization as well. <h2>Digital Transformation is Necessary for Survival</h2> Why would IT take on such daunting work? Because digital transformation is now necessary for survival. The lifespan of Fortune 500 companies is shrinking. Disruptive start-ups are appearing in every industry. Enterprises must transform or face obsolescence. Sacolick’s book is a guidebook for this kind of make-or-break transformation. And while the goals of this transformation are sweeping, Sacolick suggests starting not with lofty mandates from the executive suite, but with a bottom-up journey. That journey begins with getting the IT organization versed in new practices such as agile development and DevOps. From there, an organization can encourage innovation by developing a pipeline of initiatives based on feedback from customers and employees. Next the company can build its data management capabilities, getting data integration, data governance and data analysis right. Finally, the company is ready to drive digital and cultural transformation, spurred by the work of early adopters to make the entire organization faster and smarter. Transformation is the result of bold visions and “baby steps that you can do or influence daily that will take you a couple steps closer to a new destination,” Sacolick says. So what are the tactical steps that move us in the right direction? <blockquote><a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="https://resources.boomi.com/blog-dell-boomi/cios-need-data-governance-agile-development" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read more</a> from Isaac Sacolick on <strong>why CIOs need data governance and agile development to lead digital transformation</strong>.</blockquote> <h3></h3> <h2>The Importance of Agile Practices</h2> Adopting agile practices comes first. It’s time for organizations to move away from the waterfall model for project management that organizes projects in sequential stages — such as requirements gathering, design, coding, testing, production — each of which might last for months and yet must be completed before the next stage begins. By the time an IT project managed this way reaches production, market requirements may have changed completely and competitors may have released five or ten iterations of competing products. Agile practices begin with a small team of experts brainstorming a vision. This team can start working on the most critical features and risky technology areas without overtaxing the business sponsor for information. They can identify key requirements and get a small team developing right away. The goal is to produce something usable quickly, even if that something is not a complete, ideal implementation. Iterations will follow quickly — typically in a matter of weeks. To achieve this rapid pace of development and release, many QA functions need to be automated. And release planning needs to start at the same time as the project’s beginning; after all, the initial release is occurring within a few weeks or months, not next year. Once development sprints and release management are established, the team can begin small development projects and A/B test new ideas. <h2>What sort of projects can be tackled?</h2> Agile practices can be used to work down “technical debt,” IT shortcomings that accrue when IT teams are forced to cut corners to get a project done under a tight deadline. That corner-cutting leads to bad design and bad code. Agile projects can address these shortcomings, re-engineering IT projects for higher quality and better outcomes. Being agile also mandates integration and automation. No piece of software is an island: software works because it connects to other software and devices. If that software is going to be released on a more frequent basis, the organization needs to adopt a practice of continuous integration, so that new iterations of software can connect successfully. Automating the entire software build and test pipeline is the way to go here. In a completely automated system, new builds can even be triggered by events. This close synchronization between development, release and production is what DevOps is all about. DevOps is much more than an org chart change uniting development and operations. It’s really the culture, collaborative practices and automation that align the development and operations teams and support the automated and effective collaboration between both teams. <h2>Asking Questions and Driving Results With Portfolio Management</h2> So far, we've talked about agile practices and implementing projects, however quickly and efficiently, one at a time. Now, let’s broaden our perspective. And a good way to do that, Sacolick notes, is by asking the question people ask when a group of managers first meet: “What are you currently working on?” Getting an answer to that basic question often proves difficult. It can also be misleading: does a detailed accounting of everyone’s hours really tell you that much about what people are working on? Does it tell you the value of what they’re working on, the reason for the work in the first place and how well the project is tracking to schedule? The next question quickly becomes obvious: "What are people going to be working on?" To answer these questions and be able to meaningfully evaluate the answers, an organization needs to implement agile portfolio management, a system for tracking initiatives, resources and financials. Portfolios should be evaluated for their impact — growth, operational efficiency, new capabilities, and compliance and risk. Everything that IT creates needs to tie to business value and move the organization forward. Sacolick's recent blog post on <a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="https://blogs.starcio.com/2019/03/scaling-agile-five-important-considerations.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">scaling agile</a> talks about the need for strategic organizational change — and agile portfolio management provides a framework for evaluating IT’s work and measuring its support of the organization’s progress. <h2>Building a Data-Driven Organization</h2> It’s common for IT and business leaders to misconstrue what it means to be a data-driven organization. Too often, they think of big data, data lakes and somehow finding the data scientists talented enough to make sense of all that various data collected at high velocity. But, as Sacolick points out, that’s only one aspect of being data-driven. Real success in being data-driven means connecting previously disconnected data repositories, making data analytics available to a broader audience than just the people running the processes being analyzed, and connecting data end-to-end from customer to back office systems so that customer experiences can be tuned and optimized in real time. <a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="https://boomi.com/platform/integrate" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Integration</a> plays a key role, connecting siloed databases and other data sources. Integration provides a foundation, and then data governance, analytics and visualization need to be implemented on top. Once data sources are connected, data quality problems that have lingered for years can finally be addressed. IT organizations can implement <a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="http://www.dev-boomi.pantheonsite.io/platform/hub" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">master data management</a>, establishing “golden records” for all key data types and ensuring, for example, that systems in sales and finance are using the same definition of key terms. Data governance should define best practices that help the organization avoid the “data sins” of the past, while also ensuring that data can be accessed and leveraged at scale across the organization. <h2>Driving Revenue Through Digital Products</h2> Once an organization has adopted agile practices and become truly data-driven, it can implement significant improvements, such as workflow automation and integrating third-party services, that will yield bottom-line results. For example, the organization will be better able to implement improvements that are requested by customers. It will more easily be able to launch products and services to seize market opportunities and to leverage emerging technologies such as the IoT. Here, too, the changing role of the CIO becomes evident. Because new business initiatives are essentially IT initiatives and CIOs bear the responsibility for shaping and delivering them, CIOs must in effect become product managers. And their staff must include employees skilled at product management, not just project management. <h2>Succeeding at Digital Transformation</h2> Driving Digital does a great job at walking CIOs through practical steps for transforming their organizations to deliver products and services for the digital age. But Sacolick knows that no IT organization can succeed on its own. CIOs need the support of the rest of the executive team and the board. From the top down, the organization must be committed to moving both smarter and faster. Then, with visionary support at the top, and an agile, integrated and automated IT architecture spanning departments and divisions, the organization is ready to innovate. Need to move against new competitors or adjust a new regulation? These challenges are no longer insurmountable. Want to create boldly innovative products and services? Just do it. Driving digital makes it possible. <blockquote><a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="https://www.amazon.com/Driving-Digital-Business-Transformation-Technology/dp/0814438601/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><em>Driving Digital: The Leader’s Guide to Business Transformation Through Technology</em></a><em> </em>is available on Amazon.com.</blockquote> ‍

1 in 4 Europeans Considered Changing Banks in Last 12 Months: Poll

<em>Account holders have experienced IT outages in the last 10 weeks, new research reveals</em>   <strong>LONDON, United Kingdom, June 21, 2019:</strong> One in four (28%) Europeans have considered changing banks in the last 12 months, with poor customer service cited as a key concern, finds a new poll.   The poll – commissioned by <a style="color: #0087cc; background-color: transparent;" href="http://www.dev-boomi.pantheonsite.io/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Dell Boomi</a> and carried out by OnePoll – quizzed 6,000 adults across the UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden on the customer experience provided by their banks.   Among those that have considered changing banks, better interest rates/services (47%) and attractive new joiner incentives elsewhere (30%) were the leading drivers, followed by feeling frustrated by poor customer service (23%) and a better in-branch customer experience among other banks (22%).   When asked why they bank with their current provider, having “always” been with them (45%) was the main reason, followed by a good all-around customer experience (44%) and a good online banking experience (36%). A good banking app was considered most important by over half (52%) of those aged 18 to 24 – underlying the emphasis placed on tech by younger customers.   <strong>Growing competition from digital banks</strong> Of those who have a ‘traditional’ bank account with a high street bank such as NatWest or Barclays, a fifth (20%) also have a digital bank account (with the likes of Monzo, Starling, Revolut, etc.) – a figure which rises to over one in three (36%) under-34s.   Nearly one in five (18%) believe their traditional bank feels ‘a bit old’ and they’re looking for an improved digital performance. This increases to a quarter (25%) of those aged under 34, suggesting that more young people are looking for their bank to modernise its approach.   <strong>Tech over branches?</strong>   A quarter (25%) of Europeans haven’t visited their bank’s branch for over a year. Seven percent of 18-24s claim to have ‘never’ been to their branch, while a third of over-55s have used their branch services at least once in the last month.   A fifth (21%) would even be happy if their bank closed its branches if it resulted in an improved mobile app / online banking experience. This figure rises to nearly a third (28%) among those aged 18-24.   “New account holders won’t hold the same loyalty to their bank as previous generations have. New players entering the market have overhauled expectations and set the new standard around the digital banking experience. Customers are looking for more than better products when choosing their next provider,” said Derek Thompson, VP of EMEA at Dell Boomi.   “It’s therefore critical that banks assess their current IT ecosystem, ensuring they’re not held back by their legacy infrastructure and can quickly unite their systems, deploying more agile technology to transform customer experience,” he added.   Further investment could also be required to improve the robustness of a bank’s IT systems – with all respondents experiencing IT outages with their current bank in the last 10 weeks on average. More than 1 in 10 (13%) have experienced an outage in the last month, with 18% having experienced one in the last six months.   <strong>Open banking education required</strong>   Open banking, which came into force on January 13, 2018, requires banks to increase transparency and open APIs to enable third-party developers access to their account holder data and services. Just 21% report their current bank offers open banking services, while 69% are not sure if they do – indicating a requirement for further education in the space.   <strong>###</strong>   <strong>About Dell Boomi</strong>   Boomi, an independent business unit of Dell, quickly and easily unites everything in your digital ecosystem so you can achieve better business outcomes, faster.

10 Reasons Why TIBCO Customers Should Migrate To Boomi

TIBCO customers today stand at a crossroads. They need to pick an integration platform that’s going to help them achieve their strategic goals, including business agility and IT flexibility, both delivered at a reasonable price. Of course, TIBCO customers can choose to stick with TIBCO, but even that choice leads to other choices. If they’re a Business Works 5.x customer, should they upgrade to Business Works 6.x, or should they switch over to TIBCO’s Cloud Integration (Scribe) platform? If they’re seriously considering switching to Scribe, shouldn’t they evaluate it alongside other cloud-native platforms? The decision matters, because integration is a make-or-break capability for any business. Integration can either accelerate change or slow it down, miring a business in complex legacy code and lots of technical debt. Accelerating change gives businesses the freedom to choose best-of-breed applications. It also gives them the ability to launch new products and services in time to seize market opportunities. When a business can integrate quickly, it can act quickly, benefitting customers, partners, and shareholders alike. There’s another important factor to consider when evaluating integration platforms: cost. Legacy middleware platforms are considerably more expensive than modern cloud-native alternatives. And their programming interfaces, which often require senior developers, increase labor costs for development and testing. These platforms were designed for a different era of enterprise IT — an era of on-premises data centers, long, multi-month development and release cycles, and a slower pace of change overall. They feature complex software development environments designed for senior developers with technology skills far beyond those of the most tech-savvy business user. Building new integrations takes longer when you’re building integrations with expensive programmers and cutting tech-savvy business users out of the loop. That loss of agility translates into lost business opportunities. A better choice is abandoning legacy middleware platforms and migrating to the <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://boomi.com/platform/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Boomi AtomSphere Platform</a>, named by Gartner as a Leader in the <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://boomi.com/content/report/gartner-magic-quadrant-ipaas/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Magic Quadrant™ for EiPaaS</a> for eight straight years. The cloud-native Boomi platform provides low-code development with crowd-sourced intelligence to give businesses rapid, field-proven development. Boomi also provides support for EDI/B2B networks, workflow automation, and centralized data management. <h2>10 Reasons for Switching from TIBCO to Boomi</h2> Here are ten reasons why TIBCO customers should migrate to the Boomi platform for integration. <h3>1. Migration Expertise</h3> No other leading integration platform provider has as many years of experience transitioning TIBCO customers to an industry leading cloud integration platform. Boomi professional services has codified their expertise into reusable Boomi Blueprints and Boomi partners leverage an equally impressive number of years of expertise combined with migration tools to expedite modernization for digital transformation. <h3>2. A Clear Path Forward</h3> Instead of investing in a company that’s placing its bets on disparate parallel product lines, TIBCO customers can switch to Boomi, confident that their integration platform is the sole focus of the company behind it. They don’t have to worry that one product line or another might be discontinued. Boomi has been investing in its cloud-native platform since 2005. And Boomi has only made its platform more powerful and feature-rich since then. Start with the platform capabilities you need initially and then have peace of mind to know you can add other Boomi platform components, that leverage the Boomi skills you already know, over time to align with your digital transformation journey. <h3>3. Ready-to-Use Processes, Templates, and Accelerators</h3> In addition, Boomi and Boomi partners offer <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://resources.boomi.com/resources/home/six-ways-boomi-flow-meets-the-needs-of-professional-and-citizen-developers" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">pre-built processes, templates</a>, <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://boomi.com/recipeprogram/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">recipes developed by Boomi experts</a>, and <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://discover.boomi.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">solution accelerators</a>, further streamlining the work of building and managing integrations and workflows. Templates, recipes, and accelerators are available traditional business applications such as SAP as well as for modern cloud technologies such as Salesforce, NetSuite, Snowflake, and many more. <h3>4. Reduced Costs</h3> Switching from TIBCO to Boomi can save companies money not only in licensing fees but also in development, operational, and hardware costs. Boomi’s cloud-native solution is cheaper than maintaining a hybrid mix of legacy on-premises middleware combined with cloud-based integration. For more information about cost comparison, see Forrester Research’s TEI Report, <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://boomi.com/content/ebook/global-forrester-tei-study/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">The Total Economic Impact Of the Boomi AtomSphere Platform</a>. <h3>5. Rapid Development with Crowdsourced Guidance</h3> The Forrester TEI report also notes that Boomi's low-code development reduces development times by 65% compared to other platforms. Boomi achieves this acceleration not just by providing a drag-and-drop development interface, but also by embedding over a decade's worth of crowdsourced intelligence from over 200 million integrations. When integrating applications, Boomi Suggest provides time-proven recommendations for connecting applications, simplifying what would otherwise be complex integrations. <h3>6. Support for Citizen Developers</h3> Leading industry analysts have noted that TIBCO’s programming tools put integration development out of reach for “citizen developers” and other line-of-business users. In contrast, Boomi’s low-code development environment lets businesses take advantage of the acumen of tech-savvy business analysts and other non-IT staff in automating workflows and building integrations. Leveraging citizen developers helps lower IT costs and ensure that integrations and workflows meet the precise requirements of line-of-business end users. <h3>7. Development That Bridges Business and IT</h3> It’s important that citizen developers and other line-of-business users still operate within the guidelines and processes defined by the IT organization overall. Importantly, Boomi bridges the world of IT and business, ensuring that business-led development still follows IT best practices. Boomi’s templates, processes libraries, and parent-child process models help ensure that new integrations and workflow automations comply with all relevant IT policies. <h3>8. Industry-Leading Support for EDI</h3> EDI remains a vital technology for ecommerce, making up <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://www.digitalcommerce360.com/2022/02/15/edi-still-accounts-for-the-lions-share-of-b2b-digital-sales/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">76.5% of all digital sales in 2021</a>. Most large companies can’t afford to ignore EDI. Rather they need to streamline their EDI operations just like any other area of IT. Can they accelerate partner onboarding? Can they eliminate the complexity of legacy EDI platforms? And can they integrate their EDI services with their other integrations, so that EDI operations run seamlessly with other business applications? Boomi has long been a leader in the EDI market. By adopting the Boomi platform for integration, TIBCO customers also give themselves an advantage in the area of <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://boomi.com/platform/b2b-management/#/a38be8" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">B2B/EDI Integration Management</a>. <h3>9. Bringing Functionality to Where Data Resides</h3> Boomi customers can deploy Boomi runtimes wherever they are needed: in the cloud, on-premises or at the network edge. Businesses can bring Boomi's data processes right to where data is generated and collected, enabling businesses to respond with greater agility than ever before. The flexibility of the Boomi platform offers another benefit. Businesses don’t need to use different platforms for different use cases. Whether they’re connecting core business applications at headquarters or deploying cutting-edge technology to work with IoT devices in far-flung locations, the Boomi platform can meet all their integration and workflow automation needs. <h3>10. Keep Business Logic; Shed Technical Debt</h3> Finally, Boomi enables businesses to bring their business logic forward to a cloud-native platform, while cleaning up old workflows that are no longer needed or tuned for modern IT environments. Boomi lets TIBCO customers keep the best of what they have already built — the logic tuned precisely for their operations — while replacing the rest with flexible, high performing integrations and workflows built for today's cloud-centric IT.   <blockquote>To learn more about how TIBCO customers can benefit from migrating to Boomi, read our <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://resources.boomi.com/resources/resources-library/migrate-tibco-to-boomi" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">TIBCO Migration Solution Brief</a> or contact a Boomi expert today <a style="color: #006eff; background-color: transparent;" href="https://boomi.com/contact" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">www.dev-boomi.pantheonsite.io/contact</a></blockquote>
