For any traditional enterprise, digital is the new buzzword with Social computing, Big Data analytics, Cloud enablement, Mobile transformation & Internet of Everything driving every business discussion in every function, be it marketing, supply chain management, production, human resources or finance.
But industry standard SMAC (Social computing, Mobile technologies, Analytics & Cloud computing) led approach has not been a success for the IT industry as it is a bolt-on approach that doesn’t address the fundamental problems faced by a legacy burdened enterprise. That’s the reason SMAC uptake has been relatively modest in the industry with hardly any large services provider coming up with credible answers. Enterprises are plagued with Cost of Modernization, Control of risks attached with modernization and Capital locked in Legacy Application environment.
For most enterprises, the dependence on legacy is paramount and even a small downtime in a critical applications can result in huge revenue losses. So the quality issue of any digitalization initiative has to be met along-with a deep understanding of the domain requirements. Hence an end-to-end partner is needed who has the complete view of the enterprise application landscape, and who understands the deeper issues of control & implementation intricacies.
