IT has the opportunity to completely redefine the role networking plays in the business. But that requires executing on a vision that continuously aligns the network to ever-changing business needs. Fortunately, the right network architectures and supporting technologies required to deliver on that vision are rapidly becoming available. Automation, programmability, self-protecting, and self-healing capabilities move IT away from “keeping the lights on” and provide more time and opportunity to serve as a strategic partner to business initiatives across functional areas.
The role of IT is changing from a traditional focus on cost-efficient enablement to a more strategic contribution. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), while important, is being surpassed by a growing focus on automation and orchestration that is needed to fulfill enterprise demands for security, agility, and innovation. The cloud-grade enterprise network – spanning the campus, data center, and branch – must be able to respond to rapid changes in business, growing reliance on hybrid cloud architectures, and the needs of users and customers.
A step-change in the pace of business today brings enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems face-to-face with the largest transformation in their role since they were first introduced in the early 1990s. The rise of a new generation of business automation demands real-time information processing and visibility on a scale that was unthinkable just a few years ago. Coupled with—and in large part enabled by—this new wave of business automation, there has been a surge in the pace of business itself. Learn how Real-Time ERP puts you and your business at the forefront of this change.

There is a noticeable shift occurring in the world of order management. Traditionally, projects related to order-taking were spearheaded by the customer service department. Not anymore. The pressures of today’s global economy have forced supply chain functions to play a more direct and strategic role in reducing costs, improving the customer experience, and driving added value throughout the organization. Naturally, supply chain leaders now have a significantly higher rate of interest and involvement in order management initiatives.
Supply chain leaders work in a competitive environment, and in order to get ahead of the competition, they are increasingly turning to order processing automation solutions.

The age of digital transformation is firmly here, and with it comes a seismic shift in how businesses must operate if they intend to stay relevant and profitable. Though the role of process in digital transformation is often over-hyped, in truth, it remains a critical element in the fight to win, serve, and retain customers. In this digital age, businesses must holistically reframe their investment in process automation. In short, a compelling vision for process excellence must underpin this digital transformation, thereby transforming customerfacing processes and digitizing operational processes.
The change is so profound that Forrester has renamed the category from business process management (BPM) to digital process automation (DPA). This shift, while continuing to drive down costs and drive up employee productivity, makes customer experience and digital transformation the primary success factors. This represents a powerful and necessary change of focus.

The role of IT is changing from a traditional focus on cost-efficient enablement to a more strategic contribution. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), while important, is being surpassed by a growing focus on automation and orchestration that is needed to fulfill enterprise demands for security, agility, and innovation. The cloud-grade enterprise network – spanning the campus, data center, and branch – must be able to respond to rapid changes in business, growing reliance on hybrid cloud architectures, and the needs of users and customers. This IP Networking Comparison Guide examines the four key areas driving enterprise network priorities and looks at key factors within each. This document will give you a clear perspective on how the various options stack up on the most important features and capabilities necessary to meet your transformation needs.
The role of IT is fundamentally changing from a cost-efficient enablement technology to a more strategic element of the enterprise. For companies born before the digital era, IT is a key player on their path to digital transformation; for more recent businesses designed with technology at their core, IT represents a foundational pillar on top of which everything else is built.
With this shifting role, IT’s decades-long emphasis on TCO is being eclipsed by a new-found focus on security and automation. Whether it’s the continuous risks posed by a dynamic threat landscape, the threat of digital disruption, or an inability to keep pace with the latest trends, virtually every enterprise needs to be more agile. And, with the continued evolution of compute, storage, and applications, networks have been exposed as a bottleneck to change.
