If you’re in the middle of a finance transformation initiative, then you’re not alone. Leaders at enterprise and mid-size finance and
accounting organizations alike are reviewing their current processes, technology, and talent, to build their blueprints for change. With the rise of broader digital transformation projects, finance organizations are first looking to upgrade their own operating models.
Facing the future requires enterprises to embark on a digital transformation, employing new technologies such as AI, big data, IoT, and the cloud. Enterprises need a long-term, trusted partner who will support them on their journey and understand their vision. Switch to Juniper Networks and align your enterprise with an innovation leader that places scalable solutions, high availability, productivity, security, and R&D at the forefront, all while keeping simplicity and savings in mind.
As enterprises embark on the digital transformation to take advantage of artificial intelligence, big data, machine learning, IoT, and cloud, they need a network infrastructure that gives them a solid foundation. Juniper Networks® Unite CloudEnabled Enterprise allows networking across your entire enterprise—campus, branch, and data center—ultimately helping you reduce risk, increase agility, lower costs, and enhance the customer experience. Here are the Top 6 reasons why enterprises embarking on the journey of digital transformation should switch to the Juniper Unite Cloud-Enabled Enterprise solution.
Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.
Cloud is the new computer, and hybrid cloud is the new IT platform. According to a number of recent surveys, including RightScale’s State of the Cloud Report, enterprises see hybrid cloud as their ideal IT platform across business use cases like digital transformation, IoT, and big data-led research and business insight. These surveys show that the number of enterprises making the transition to hybrid cloud is on the rise, up from 75% in 2015 to 82% in 2016
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.
Digital transformation (DX) is fundamentally changing enterprise resource planning (ERP) — allowing businesses to transform their decision making, which is enhancing their business outcomes significantly as we enter the digital economy. Digital transformation is an enterprisewide, board-level strategic reality for companies wishing to remain relevant or maintain or enhance their leadership positon in the digital economy. Digitally transformed businesses have a repeatable set of practices and disciplines that are used to leverage new business, 3rd Platform technology, and operating models to disrupt businesses, customers, and markets in pursuit of business performance and growth. DX is driving businesses to rethink their technology strategy, and that includes moving beyond their legacy ERP and back-office systems.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is the backbone of modern manufacturing information systems, enabling the digital transformation that’s changing operations and customer expectations. As the movement toward a digital workplace evolves, your ERP system must keep pace.

Digital transformation (DX) has progressed well beyond the abundant hype predicting it to where it is now an existential concern for many enterprises. We are at an inflection point as digital transformation efforts shift from "project" or "initiative" status to strategic business imperatives. Growing enterprises,
regardless of age or industry, are striving to become "digital native" in the way their executives and employees think, what they produce, and how they operate. IDC predicts that by 2021, at least 50% of global GDP will be digitized, with growth in every industry driven by digitally enhanced offerings, operations, and relationships, and that by 2020, investors will use platform/ecosystem, data value, and customer engagement metrics as valuation factors for all enterprises.

If you’re in the middle of a finance transformation initiative, then you’re not alone. Leaders at enterprise and mid-size finance and
accounting organizations alike are reviewing their current processes, technology, and talent, to build their blueprints for change. With the rise of broader digital transformation projects, finance organizations are first looking to upgrade their own operating models. The truth is that finance transformation is a journey, not a destination. Many finance organizations have already embarked on it, driving down costs, whether through enhancing shared services centers, or applying more centralization, standardization, and automation. Yet for many, the greater opportunities lie ahead: providing better insight to the broader organization, shedding low-value workloads that hold the team back, and revamping ingrained legacy accounting tasks that create risk. Wherever you are today, there are real opportunities to move the dial away from the status quo.
Business leaders today face the challenge of moving their enterprises to the next level, that of digital business transformation and revolution — coupling digital technologies with organizational, operationaland business model innovation to create new ways of operating and growing the business.
The "4th Industrial Revolution" enables enterprises to drive changes in their business models and ecosystems, leveraging digital competences and facilitating accelerated revenue and profit growth going forward.
Today, digital is everywhere—cloud, mobile, social and the Internet of Things are changing the way we all work and play. This rapidly evolving digital world is also redefining the relationship between your business and your customers, who now expect a convenient, interactive experience from their preferred brands.
Security is also a concern. Risk is rising, as both the enterprise and its customers exchange a growing amount of sensitive data. This transformation is also amplifying competition. As analyst Mark Raskino notes, “As a consequence, all players rebuilt their strategies around the same time, and all have awakened to the power of digital business at the same time. Contention is therefore inevitable.”
