It’s time for IT to let software do more of the work
The world of business technology is under tremendous pressure and most organizations are ill-equipped to deal with the challenges and opportunities that are arising. Software as a Service, big data, cloud, scale-out, containers and microservices are not just buzz-words they are disrupting traditional business models. Further, while these terms and technologies represent a new world of opportunity, they also bring complexity that most IT departments are ill-equipped to pursue. This has become the Big Software era.
To realize the promise of Big Software, companies need an entirely new way of thinking. Where applications were once simple to manage and deploy with a couple of solutions across a couple of machines; companies must now roll out many applications, components, and integration points spread across tens of thousands of on-premise and hosted physical and virtual machines. Companies must have the right mix of products, services, and tools to match the requirements of the business. However, many IT departments are undertaking these challenges with the approaches, processes, and tools developed over a decade ago.
