Juggling is no doubt familiar to CIOs who have to deal with an increasingly demanding audience. http://www.via-cc.at... How do you cope?

Carlo Daffara
whoever is doing the drawings, bravo. They are beautiful and relevant.
jacques boschung
We want your views on how traditional businesses will be able to juggle IT priorities in order to deliver the innovation needed in this disruptive context
Hans Timmerman
@jacquesboschung start with a standardised cloud IaaS . . .
Frank Wammes
@jacquesboschung Think there will become a new kind of service delivery of companies scanning trends, but connect it with new innovations, services. Think Gartner in combination with start-up incubators
Dinko Eror
You have to keep all your plates in the air (existing business critical apps and platforms), while you respond to the new things that are thrown your way (new business requirements that require new platforms to develop new innovative apps)!
Xerxel
You have to know what the plates are, first! ;-)
jacques boschung
Fintech is a great example of the banking industry being under threat. In 2014, VC poured $12bn into those start-ups, 3X what they had in 2013. Banks need to embrace the customer digital experience or go out of business.
Dinko Eror
what do you suggest? Xerxel
Bill Mew
We are ALL loving the circus graphics - Great Fun!
Hans Timmerman
@DinkoEror Automate aggressively the 2nd platform to have enough money to invest in the 3rd platform.
Frank Wammes
@jacquesboschung It also provides companies to take their core business but reshape the business model. I have witnessed it within our own company where we put IP into the cloud and be able to bring it into a complete new model into the market
Frank Wammes
@hansemc Hans you are spot on. Free up the resources ! and invest wisely
jacques boschung
@fwammes The fact that 70% of US 'Generation Y', would prefer to visit their dentist than go to the bank simply highlights the need for true digital transformation in retail banking
Hans Timmerman
@fwammes and migrate 'old' existing data to an open platform (a data lake???)
Witold Kepinski
@ratcliffe_d if you go to a 'public meeting' of Amazon AWS, it's all about building the tools to get the best usage of the cloud. Their view: Hybrid cloud is just an 'intermediate station'
Bill Mew
My family are all dentists - I see too much of them. But you're right, the banking sector has survived for too long on customer inertia. When the tide changes, this will come back to bite them
Hans Timmerman
@WitoldKepinski understandable for AWS, they have no hybrid offerings . .
Hans Timmerman
@WitoldKepinski AWS: wij van wc-end adviseren wc-eend . .
Bill Mew
Sometime soon we will move away from the term Hybrid. We will just be talking about interoperable cloud and they'll ALL be like that
Frank Wammes
@hansemc Hans; strange thought. Would they ever go Private like they now are entering the brick and mortar stores ?
Darren Ratcliffe
@WitoldKepinski someone with only a public strategy would quite rightly use this argument, I refer back to a point I made earlier that there are still tons of mainframes out there. most companies with legacy will be hybrid for decades to come
Nicoletta Boldrini
@jacquesboschung Having said that I don't like dentists... I do all that I can do via digital way!!!! Like me many other people. Companies cannot ignore it!
Emilia Sarno
Use @ to reply I do agree with you Nic!
Nicoletta Boldrini
@jacquesboschung Users will force the enterprise cloud journey
Frank Wammes
@NicBoldrini Agree. I once did a questionnaire in the audience who used solutions like Evernote etc. Then people started to realise that cloud is already there. Cloud can and has become already the new shadow software !
jacques boschung
@NicBoldrini Yes, but with the right processes, tools and agile infrastructure internal IT can provide the same superior customer experience as any public cloud provider
Nicoletta Boldrini
@jacquesboschung Totally agree! DevOps is one of the main pillars, the key success
Dinko Eror
Let's talk about the rise of DevOPs and the emergence of Bi Modal IT. Are you familiar with these concepts?
Suhela Dighe
Maybe you can explain what bi-modal IT is?
Dayne Turbitt
Suhela, this is what I was talking about earlier with Bill. IT organisations need to maintain their traditional environments while rapidly accelerating the next generation environments. To remain competitive, they need to do both at the same time.
Dinko Eror
and you don't want to get caught between the two or stuck in the timid middle
Paweł Tokarski
DevOps is more and more popular term but like with Cloud - means different things to different people ;)
Darren Ratcliffe
DevOps requires the culture shift I mentioned in an earlier thread, it can be really effective if executed well with a supporting platform. bi-modal is just an analysts posh way to express pets & cattle scenarios :-)
Dayne Turbitt
@paweltokarski Agreed. However, the fundamental principle has to be speed of application introduction to support the business needs.
Hans Timmerman
DevOps is the same as the design/build teams when we created CAD-CAM chains: design for manufacturing. @DinkoEror
Frank Wammes
@Ratcliffe_D So totally agree. lot people perceive it as smart methods and toolsets, where it actually concerns culture and mindset
Dayne Turbitt
In order to maximise the speed of introduction you need highly agile IT infrastructure to underpin your DevOps philosophy
Dinko Eror
The idea of DevOps – the cooperation between, and automation of development and operations processes are a great way to speed both existing development projects as well as a way to develop new apps quickly.
Nicoletta Boldrini
@paweltokarski I do NOT agree. It's true that is not a real standard framework, but what DevOps is and means is quite clear...
jacques boschung
To open new routes to market, DevOps is a crucial instrument for timely release of mobile apps
Dayne Turbitt
Yes, long cycles for application development, deployment and provisioning are continuing to impact the relationship between IT and the wider business.
Hans Timmerman
@jacquesboschung DevOps is design for manufacturing.
jacques boschung
A $2bn worldwide 'device' manufacturer is changing from being a hardware to a software business with a strong focus on application development and although the infrastructure is virtualised, IT cannot cope with the needs of scrum app dev
Dinko Eror
I agree Jacques. Just learning scrum approach. Cool stuff.
Paweł Tokarski
@NicBoldrini I agree that DevOps is much more clear term than Cloud / Clouds. But it is quite often abused / misused, just like cloud.
Dayne Turbitt
@jacquesboschung Agree. I discussed this in my blog "Two Routes to Digital Business"https://www.linkedin...
Nicoletta Boldrini
@paweltokarski It blames the marketing :-))))
Bill Mew
@NicBoldrini Always blame marketing!
Dinko Eror
I’ve considered the changes disruptive technology is having on traditional models, and the routes businesses are taking to embrace transformation and the skills in a recent blog: https://infocus.emc....
Paweł Tokarski
@NicBoldrini I always tell our customers to "steal" young and bright people to get them work for IT ;)
Paweł Tokarski
@NicBoldrini I meant "steal" from marketing ;0
Nicoletta Boldrini
@paweltokarski You're right! Totally agree!
