In the emerging digital enterprise, there’s a good chance some application development will be taking place outside the information technology department. It’s not that the role of IT is in any way being diminished – in fact, IT managers are getting busier than ever, overseeing the technology strategies of their enterprises. Rather, the pieces are in place for business users to build and configure the essential business applications they need, on a self-service basis, with minimal or no involvement of their IT departments.
As the world moves deeper into an era of ongoing disruption from digital players – be they startups, or teams within established enterprises – technology has become an essential part of every job, from the boardroom to the boiler room. Accordingly, the discipline of IT is no longer confined to the data center or development shop. Many business managers and professionals are building, launching or downloading their own applications to achieve productivity and respond

For many companies the appeal of the public cloud is very real. For tech startups, the cloud may be their
only option, since many don’t have the capital or expertise to build and operate the IT systems their
businesses need. Existing companies with established data centers are also looking at public clouds, to
increase IT agility while limiting risk. The idea of building-out their production capacity while possibly
reducing the costs attached to that infrastructure can be attractive. For most companies the cloud isn’t
an “either-or” decision, but an operating model to be evaluated along with on-site infrastructure. And
like most infrastructure decisions the question of cost is certainly a consideration.
In this report we’ll explore that question, comparing the cost of an on-site hyperconverged solution with
a comparable set up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRailTM hyperconverged
appliance cluster and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a transformative technology that will change the way organizations interact and will add intelligence to many products and services through new insights currently hidden in vast pools of data. In 2017 alone, venture capitalists invested more than $11.7 billion in the top 100 Artificial Intelligence startups, according to CB Insights1, and the breadth of Artificial Intelligence applications continues to grow. While human-like intelligence will remain the stuff of novels and movies for the near future, most organizations can and should explore practical Artificial Intelligence projects. This technology has the potential to:
• Improve productivity of internal applications

Today’s fast-moving markets present threats and opportunities at every turn. Whether you’re a large enterprise or a small startup, it’s no longer enough to simply practice agile development. To survive — and thrive — in this disruptive environment, you need agility throughout your organization.
Business moves fast. Customers demand now. You need to get ahead of it all. Markets are changing overnight, and the startups are disrupting the giants. The biggest risk you can take is to stand still. Do what you’ve always done and, you guessed it, you’ll be lucky to get the same results you’ve seen in the past. Odds are, those smaller, faster companies are going to sail right by.
Agile software development is no longer a fad, a niche methodology, or just for startups: it’s a requirement for any modern and adaptive development organization. Without the adoption of agile practices, your business may be challenged to keep pace with customer commitments, beat the competition to market, and establish a roadmap for strategic innovation. But a proven framework for agile transformation—including services and tooling can enhance your productivity and speed, and support you as you scale.

Startups with digital products are not commonly known to pursue small dreams. Once the basic idea of the product is designed and the industry niche has been identified, leadership is already thinking hard about where and to how many markets the product should be rolled out.
The mission is critical: the product must clearly create added value for the user in the local market while reflecting the needs of their local community. The challenge is making those changes in each market without losing sight of the basic idea of the product.
