Top 10 IT enterprise trends 2012

  1. 1. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE ENTERPRISE IT IN 2012 By Bob Hayward Chief Technology and Innovation Officer, CSC Australia and CSC Asia 03/14/12 04:57
  2. 2. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE The Sky Is Not the Limit HEAD FOR THE CLOUDS • Expect ‘Everything’ as a Service, with scrutiny over treatment of data, privacy and security. • Result, increased requirement for transparency – voluntary industry codes, trust marks, standards like CloudTrust Protocol. • The ‘take it or leave it’ public cloud offerings will have a niche role but not for much of typical enterprise IT portfolio. • Enterprises start to lean towards invitation only trusted clouds (in- country, community or private clouds). 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  3. 3. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE A Legacy Transformed REWRITE HISTORY • Something has to be done about legacy: – Costing a fortune to operate; voraciously consuming scarce energy; dwindling expertise for obsolete software/languages; and limiting enterprise innovation • Enterprises in 2012 will seriously consider retiring, replacing or decommissioning legacy assets. • It is time to automatically ‘rewrite’ history to more contemporary languages (Java, C#, Ruby) and environments (X86, Cloud). • High cost of inaction! 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  4. 4. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE Big Data MORE IS BETTER NOW • Expect big data questions to come from your business • Large body of research and supporting big data technologies: – MapReduce, Direct Record Access or Queries, NoSQL Databases, Parallel Relational Databases, Hadoop (MapReduce engines). • More case studies will emerge in 2012 addressing the gap between the promise and the reality of big data • Don’t forget: Big data means big backups and big recovery. 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  5. 5. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE Convergence of IT and OT CLOSE THE DIVIDE • Business will look to exploit the increasing convergence between traditional information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT). • The result, depending on operational stack and industry, will be: • Integration of machines with enterprise systems; • Value-based optimisation; and • Bullet-proof reliability. • To be successful enterprise IT must address the age-old divide between OT managers (mainly engineers) and their IT counterparts! 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  6. 6. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE Strategic Leaking OPEN THE PIPELINE • WikiLeaks disclosures: • The traditional response: “How can I lock down my organisation’s information and make sure this doesn’t happen to me?” • The strategic response: “What data and information that we’ve always considered confidential should we be making available online - and how could we leverage the disclosure of that information?” • Like it or not - companies will have to become more transparent. • Advantages of the right response will be: • Deeper customer loyalty and trust; • Better publicity; • Better relations with investors. 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  7. 7. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE Post-PC Era MOBILITY FOR EVERYONE • Phrases generally associated with the traditional desktop/laptop: • “Old-fashioned, unintuitive and drain on productivity” • Employees are already exposed to a new way of interaction (location aware presence, AR, sensors, voice and gesture recognition) • Embracing change is not without challenges: • E.g. Procurement, vendor management, employee support, security policies and legal compliance. • However, the Post-PC era is here and enterprise IT does not want to end up on the wrong side of history. 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  8. 8. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE The User Is the Universe WORK ANYWHERE • Increasing mobility allows work to occur anywhere, on any device and over any network (business, shared or third-party). • What does this mean for the traditional perimeter? • Forward-thinking organisations will shift from enterprise-centric approaches to a new user- centric federated identity management approach. • To do this one must first acknowledge a new perimeter at the edges! 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  9. 9. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE Rapid Knowledge Capture KEEP KNOW-HOW • Thousands of baby boomers retiring every year! • Ignoring skill shortages and recruitment challenges, our baby boomers are leaving with critical knowledge, experience and IP , most of which can’t easily be transferred (tacit in nature). • Capturing some knowledge will be better than none! • Expect to see the application of innovative low cost approaches: • Virtual environments to communicate key business processes • Human–computer interfaces to allow some retirees to work side-by-side with their younger peers • Gamification of business processes – making education ‘sticky’ 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  10. 10. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE Taking IT Seriously GREEN IT IS IN FULL BLOOM • Enterprises in Australia will need to take sustainable IT seriously with introduction: • Carbon tax; • The Mandatory Energy Performance initiative; and • Rising energy costs (e.g. IT use of energy projected to grow four-fold between now and 2020). • Deployment of better tools required for detailed reports on energy, water and waste removal - by BU • Expect IT investment in emissions reduction through IT, as well as by IT: • Intelligent buildings; • Optimised supply chains; • Fleet management. 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
  11. 11. VIRTUAL SALES CONFERENCE Collaborate Without Borders FINDING TALENT EVERYWHERE • Global search for talent and insight is on! • Increased emphasis on off-shoring of knowledge work, the outsourcing of business processes and improved virtual collaboration • Expect to see organisations (even the ultra conservative ones) move towards crowd-sourcing and the use of social media to: • Converse with the market; • Identify new opportunities; • Develop ideas and content. 03/14/12 04:57© 2012 CSC Australia Pty Limited Top 10 Technology Trends
