Gartner suggests at least two-thirds of all IT spending is just to sustain the
business, not to change or transform the business.
The focus of IT control has shifted to Line of Business (LoB) where applications needed to serve business need are
easily ‘rented’. The perception is that corporate IT departments are brittle and overly governed.
IT is in transition from information management to making data super useful.
At the heart of “making information super useful” is looking closely at the intersection of people, processes, and
information. One survey found that 72% of people admit to using unsanctioned cloud applications. Business units
want access to productivity tools that integrate into the organization that relieve the burden and stress of the
Programming is the largest employer and biggest inhibitor to IT innovation.
It makes building applications more complex, unpredictable… and produces more complex projects and
applications with more bugs demanding more tuning and testing. Perhaps the biggest challenge is that
programming creates an ‘us and them’ between IT and the business. It means IT cannot be embedded into change
teams or hope to respond to the agile business demands of stakeholders in a digital age. It is no longer ‘fit for

Powering a Paradigm Shift in Consumerised Enterprise Computing
“Anything new and different is initially going to
be misunderstood. It will be misunderstood by
well-meaning critics, who are worried it might
not work out. It will be misunderstood by self-
interested critics, who have a profit stream
connected to the old way. If you can’t weather
this kind of criticism, then whatever you do,
don’t do anything new.”
Amazon founder Jezz Bezos.
YOUR BUSINESS IS
UNDERGOING A DIGITAL
IT CALLS FOR A DIFFERENT
APPROACH TO ENTERPRISE IT
The majority of businesses are already undergoing a
formal digital transformation effort
“Is your organization undergoing a
formal digital transformation
effort in 2014?”
For digital transformation to succeed LoB managers need
to harvest, analyze and act on useful information
When the majority of IT spend is allocated
to keeping the lights on…
…the people that make your
business decisions, drive change,
growth, innovation and customer
experience are left without the
fit-for-purpose apps they need.
In the digital age, businesses run on data. Traditional enterprise IT has no ‘engine’ to produce
the situational applications that businesses need affordably, repeatedly or quickly enough.

Real-Time Application Prototyping
Applications design is a wasteful
process. The article ‘Why Your IT
Project May Be Riskier Than You
Think’ by HBR (Nov 2011)
followed a survey of 1,471 IT
projects with an average spend of
$167m and found:
• The average overrun was 27%
• One in six of the projects
studied was a ‘black swan’, with
a cost over-run of 200%.
• Almost 70% of black swan
projects also over-ran their
Encanvas removes project over-
run risk and delivers best-fit apps
on time and on budget.

Serve the Long-Tail of Apps Needs
While companies invest heavily in
primary systems they lack the
resources to meet all demands.
Encanvas uniquely enables the
rapid and repeated delivery of
situational apps so IT can keep up
with agile business demands.

As businesses grow they develop
silos of data and function creating
inefficient and often disconnected
Encanvas bridges across data silos to
create joined up process workflows
without necessitating a proliferation
of apps, tools and expert IT skills.
Dr Eli Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints is
well known to organizational consultants. It
states that the core constraint of virtually
every organisation is that organisations are
structured, measured and managed in
parts, rather than as a whole. This results
in lower-than-expected performance with
constraints constantly shifting from one
place to another and chronic conflicts
between people representing different
parts of the organisation.
Secure Enterprise Data
Today’s online connected
communities demand secure
federated access to shared data
assets anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
Encanvas installs a federated
identity management environment,
adds richer end-point security with
more layers of web access security
than any other platform to create
virtually unhackable apps.
