  • Understand the What, Why & How of Digital Transformation Featuring 451 Research Understand the What, Why & How of Digital Transformation Featuring 451 Research Nick Patience, Founder & Research Vice President, 451 Research & Michael Cote, Director of Technical Marketing, Pivotal Recorded: Feb 8 2017 55 mins
    Why did we hear so much about “Digital Transformation” in 2016, and frankly what does it mean? While it's easy to dismiss the phrase with an eye-roll, there's no better phrase to represent improving how IT is used to help drive business innovation...and the huge changes organizations must go through to be successful. This webinar with Nick Patience, Research Vice President for 451 Research's software team, and Michael Coté of Pivotal will discuss a pragmatic definition and approach to Digital Transformation as seen through the experiences of organizations who've lived through it.

    Digital Transformation is about fundamentally rebuilding business and IT processes, not just about building apps. 451 Research defines Digital Transformation as “a result of IT innovation that is aligned with and driven by a well-planned business strategy, with the goal of transforming how organizations serve customers, employees and partners.” Some main features of a successful transformation include the ability to quickly react to market demands, and use information to make better decisions and serve constituents more effectively.

    In this webinar Nick Patience of 451 Research and Pivotal’s Michael Cote will discuss:
    - Why now is the time for Digital Transformation
    - How the balance of power between customer and provider contributes to this new revolution
    - Shifting priorities that require new practices and processes and the technical tools and platforms that support them
    - Real-world examples of organizations that have been there (we’ll share all the gorey details, including what worked and didn't work for them)
  • Pivotal & Forrester Share 5 Common Approaches to Application Modernization Pivotal & Forrester Share 5 Common Approaches to Application Modernization Richard Seroter, Sr. Director, Pivotal and guest John Rymer, Vice President, Forrester Recorded: Dec 13 2016 61 mins
    Are you trying to figure out how your existing application portfolio fits in your digital transformation? Digital transformation is not just about building new applications, but also about unlocking the value in the existing ones. To unlock that value, these applications often need some level of modernization. But how much is enough? What types of applications require the most changes? Can you just lift-and-shift applications into the latest container platform and call it done? These tough questions are critical to your long-term success.

    Forrester Research has uncovered five common approaches to application modernization: lift-and-shift, lift-and-extend, SaaS substitution, full replacement, and hybrid extend. In this webinar featuring John Rymer of Forrester, and Richard Seroter of Pivotal, you will learn about these five approaches and the benefits and risks of each. We will discuss how to profile your existing application portfolio to identify which applications are the right fit for each modernization approach.
