Cloud has evolved from a technological innovation to an integral part of business. Companies in
every industry are investing in Digital Transformation initiatives to evolve and grow; often, cloudbased platforms are foundational elements of these transformations, as businesses increasingly seek the
flexibility and agility to roll out new software services in days or weeks, versus months or years.
Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly
every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile,
social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders
are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of
digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and
business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the
business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor
that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.
A technology-enabled business strategy such as digital transformation (DX) makes it possible for firms to
expand their competitive differentiation in the market. Although disruptive, DX requires firms to effectively
and efficiently combine (technology) platforms, (business) processes, (data) governance, and (people)
talent to gather deep and timely insights from data and actuate these insights to optimize business
operations, develop new and innovative products and services, and transform customer engagement.

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 notion of digitizing your business has become a matter of “when,” rather than “if.” For many, migrating critical workloads to the cloud is a key part of this transformation. When deciding on a cloud provider, however, IT executives are under pressure to find a solution that enables reduced costs, greater agility, and above all, the ability to innovate core business processes.
At the heart of many businesses embarking on this journey is their SAP environment. But since SAP workloads represent some of the most critical and deeply integrated business applications, IT executives are required to look for ways to execute this migration in the most timely and reliable manner. Organizations migrating to the cloud cannot risk application downtime or productivity loss.

Machine learning is proving its power across virtually every industry in ways that add actionable insight and efficiency. But one can look at the rise of this transformative paradigm with a more focused lens to see AI technologies as a business tool of the highest order, one that improves processes and inspires new models. AI, in other words, has a big role to play on the balance sheet.
Two leading brands in very different spaces — Capital One in financial services, John Deere in agriculture — are seeing efforts that stretch back decades come to fruition with the launch of cloud-based AI platforms. Capital One is developing digital products and experiences using machine learning to help millions of customers with their financial lives; John Deere’s Precision Agriculture solution helps farmers gain precise information about their machines and crops. In both instances, AI and a cloud platform combine to enable transformation.
