Saugatuck Technology report summarizes platform approach for Digital Business success.

Success in the constantly-changing, constantly-innovating world of Digital Business requires a flexible, platform-based approach built on three cornerstones: data analytics, dPaaS and other Cloud development platforms, and DevOps, the key methodology for managing the transformation of business and IT transformation from traditional markets and methods toward digital competition.

This is the key guidance in a report released today by IT business strategy firm Saugatuck Technology, Inc. The comprehensive xx-page report, “Cornerstones for Digital Business: Big Data, dPaaS, and DevOps,” is available today free of charge to Saugatuck research clients, and available for purchase and downloading by non-clients.

“Digital Business is all about driving revenue, and creating customer value, often in entirely new ways, using innovative business strategies and, increasingly, interactive experiences. This requires a substantial transformation or rapid evolution of most existing enterprise business operations – something that cannot be accomplished and managed effectively without using and understanding these three key capabilities,” states report author and Saugatuck Research Fellow Mike West. “And the table stakes keep growing as business and consumer customers demand more and more from their providers.”

“Our research indicates very clearly that we are in the early, but important, transitional stages of Digital Business, from the previous era of point-solution focused Cloud investments,” shared Saugatuck founder and CEO Bill McNee. “We see substantial opportunities for providers of business and technology services to help buyers and users understand, implement, and deliver the concept and benefits of Digital Business.”

This Strategic Research Report summarizes and presents key concepts of Digital Business, and includes re-examinations of foundational Saugatuck research to illustrate and guide readers through Digital Business transitions. Readers of this report will learn the following:

  • Why, and how, are data analytics, dPaaS, and DevOps the cornerstones of a solid Digital Business foundation?
