And, as broad as it sounds, it encompasses a fundamental shift from business status quo, to businesses ‘transforming’ themselves in order to improve customer experience, and significantly accelerate how they innovate applications and products1. To help ground this in real terms, here is a definition that we believe encompasses the meaning: every company today that wants to reach employees and customers in a highly-connected ‘digital’ world, must invest in new technology, business models and engineering processes that result in rapid innovation cycles and create greater value. This is how the world competes today. As the speed of innovation accelerates, every technology executive works to keep pace with competition and increase business. This movement for faster innovation is driving fundamental changes in companies across all industries—from consumer-facing to B2B models. Whether you’re a large enterprise, an independent software vendor (ISV), or a startup, the demand is the same: Deliver faster cycles of innovation and enable experimentation, to connect with the outer world and at the same time, scale IT infrastructure on-demand to dynamically respond to your success while avoiding unnecessary costs. This is reality for every business’ survival. 1 DevOps & the Engineering-Led World of the Digital Enterprise, Daitan Group White Paper Enterprise APIs for Rapid Service Delivery, Daitan Group White Paper

Every company today that wants to reach employees and customers in a highly-connected digital world, must invest in new technology, business models and engineering processes that result in rapid innovation cycles and create greater value. This is how the world competes today.

While the demands are the same for all companies, it bears mentioning that for technology organizations with existing applications and products, the challenges are more complex versus a start-up that carries no baggage from legacy systems or technical debt. Startups can move quicker and impact market share of an existing enterprise or ISV, so the urgency for established companies to ‘transform’ is exacerbated. That said, at the other end of the spectrum, large organizations like Amazon, Facebook, Netflix, eBay and others have already been “digitally transformed.” They led the charge by pioneering, launching and operating wholly new architectures capable of handling their super-connected world of customers. Now, the rest of the world learns by these examples and asks, “How can we adapt these strategies for our business?”

This White Paper The purpose of this whitepaper is to present approaches we have successfully deployed on multiple occasions for both mature ISVs and enterprise environments faced with the business imperative to accelerate innovation and leverage their existing assets without disrupting operations of an existing application. In short, we ‘Renovate to Innovate.’

Deliver faster cycles of innovation and enable experimentation, to connect with the outer world and at the same time, scale IT infrastructure on-demand to dynamically respond to your success while avoiding unnecessary costs. This is reality for every business’ survival.
