The digital explosion is a massive opportunity for organizations. But to make the most of it and become digital businesses, you need to balance the requirements of 2-speed IT: fast IT – exploiting cloud-based digital solutions to drive innovation; and robust IT – modernizing the core systems that run your business.
This applies whether you are in the private sector, with a focus on growth and competitive advantage, or the public sector, driven more by an ‘austerity agenda’ and a ‘digital first’ strategy.
In January 2016, Fujitsu released the “Walking the Digital Tightrope” research report and video. In this we interviewed 640 European CEOs and senior IT decision makers. While 70% feel digitalization is a gamble and integration with existing IT is seen as challenging by all – 75% want to move faster, expecting it will help them attract and retain talent, improve business responsiveness, increase workforce productivity and drive stronger customer loyalty and retention.
Successful digital transformation
For effective digitalization you need to embrace two-speed IT:
Fast IT, delivering new, cloud based digital solutions to address the need for change
Robust IT, modernizing your existing core business systems for agility and reduced costs
Integration, bringing your new Fast and Robust IT initiatives together to unlock the value the of your existing data and investments.
This will result in a new Hybrid IT landscape, with a mix of cloud services, alongside on premise and traditional IT. This means:
New risks to be managed, since data is now held in systems outside the data center, accessed from outside the office, and vulnerable to new threats
Greater operational complexity, with more suppliers to manage, data distributed across multiple locations and suppliers, and the need for control over access to systems.
Digitalization is much more than just adopting a new cloud-based digital solution. To achieve sustainable success our research shows you will need:
Access to the right digital and cloud solutions – from Fujitsu and our partners
The ability to orchestrate, integrate and manage Hybrid IT – so you have visibility of what services are being used, oversight on security and full control of costs.
