IT departments are under constant pressure to do more with less. Now, as well as keeping the lights on, they are expected to deliver projects that create real business value. As more businesses use digital technologies to disrupt their markets, this pressure is intensifying.

Conversely, controlling content chaos can significantly improve your analytics strategy by gaining insight and business value from dark or unstructured data sources. In this eBook, learn how cognitive and cloud-based Enterprise Content Management, or ECM, can help you protect your content while gaining a competitive advantage from it as you grow.

Choosing how to build an open hybrid cloud is perhaps the most strategic decision IT leaders will make this decade. It’s a choice that will determine their organization's competitiveness, flexibility, and IT economics for the next ten years.

As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Business Service Management (BSM) is of growing importance in the IT world. By managing IT systems according to the business services they support - like order entry, online sales, shipping, or customer service - IT is able to deliver on real business goals like providing competitive advantage, improving customer satisfaction, driving revenue growth, and increasing shareholder value.
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
