Earlier this summer, we unpacked the findings of Accenture’s “Perspective on Cloud Outcomes: Expectation vs. Reality” report, which found that of 200 IT pros polled, hardly one third are satisfied with the results of their cloud migration to date. Now, another report from Accenture is driving the point home that as a new generation of business solutions – namely, cloud...

Another week, another round of mixed-messages for the retail sector, as a string of recent news continues to paint a fuzzy picture for the future of the industry as it reckons with digital transformation. First up was a report from Best Buy that delivered about as mixed a message as market watchers could imagine. While the brand’s latest earnings report,...

From funky new approaches to interior design to “thinking green” about plastic toiletries, many established hotel brands are going to great lengths to appeal to a new generation of travelers who put “experiences” (read: Instagrammable moments) ahead of material when it comes to spending. But the biggest and most impactful changes that hotel brands are instituting lately go beyond edgy...

We recently discussed how educators in Florida are spearheading a revolutionary telehealth initiative to connect students living with the trauma of last year’s Hurricane Michael – the first Category 5 storm to make landfall in almost three decades – with mental health professionals in schools. But as the southeastern US reckons with the fallout of another monster storm in the...

A decade back, before cell phones became “smart” and armed almost every man, woman and child with a full-fledged, pocket-sized PC, network management teams were able to set and enforce fairly predictable use policies for employee devices. After all, it was (and remains) common for IT to supply computers to employees, while intelligent mobile devices (usually Blackberries, which were hardly...

The start of the school year can be daunting under any circumstances. But for students in Northwest Florida, this fall marks the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Michael, one of the most damaging hurricanes on record and the first Category 5 to reach the U.S. mainland since 1992. For many in this corner of the state, memories of the Michael are...

Any major network – especially a highly distributed one – that fails to change with the times is bound to pay a price. And while concepts like digital transformation are generally applied to industry verticals in the quest for greater business outcomes (and ultimately profits), the same principles can be applied to the sphere of education as a means to...

We’ve said it before and we’ll keep on saying it: Undertaking any changes–big or small–to your network without having a data-driven strategy is a recipe for failure. But the message to date seems to be falling on deaf ears at many mature finance and telecom companies, as fewer than 35 percent of the IT leaders in this sector rely on...

Every sector faces unique roadblocks on their path to the cloud. In life sciences, however, the stakes of executing a successful digital transformation can literally be life or death, and protecting patients and their data has always been a top concern when adopting new technology. In that same vein, however, a reluctance to innovate or deploy technologies that can speed...

Despite the fact that the United States’ healthcare system is among the world’s most expensive, it ranks at the bottom of developed nations where efficiency and effectiveness are concerned. That’s because not unlike in finance, where customer experience has been the primary benefactor of digital transformation initiatives, healthcare tech has been slow to transform where back-office operations are concerned. At...

We’ve recently touched upon how digital transformation has been making a serious impact across industries, from the previously cloud-averse financial sector down to the assembly line. Retail, however, is one industry that’s perhaps felt the burn (and the boon, ie. Amazon, WalMart, Wayfair) of digital transformation more than any other. But while retailers have been credited with evolving in response...

According to the findings of our 2019 State of Enterprise IT report, only 53.5% of all enterprises are knowingly employing a network performance monitoring solution. That means that despite the fact that enterprises the world over are, by and large, overhauling their legacy networks to embrace enterprise decentralization, only about half of IT teams are even sure they have a...

The financial sector has been notoriously averse to embracing the scale of digital transformation that has transformed other industries from the top-down (think Industry 4.0, IoT in Healthcare, virtual dressing rooms, etc.). While banks of all sizes have adopted cloud computing for non-core functions, many still rely on legacy, hardware-defined workflows when it comes to business-critical operations and customer transactions....

Last week, the AppNeta team traveled down to Dallas for ONUG Spring 2019, where we met with other leaders in the enterprise networking space to discuss the challenges and solutions organizations face as they put connected technologies front-and-center. The agenda for the event zeroed in on Digital Transformation in particular, which, as a concept, can be loaded. As we’ve discussed...

Remote work is by no means a new concept, but recent high-profile announcements suggest that this model is fast graduating from “a novel approach” to an operational standard across industries. At Facebook’s recent F8 2019 developer conference, for instance, Stripe, a tech platform that builds economic infrastructure for web companies, announced that the company would be opening up a fifth...

While consensus over what digital transformation actually means still appears to elude many members of the C-Suite, enterprise investment into the concept has never been higher, according to a recent report from IDC. Across virtually every industry and sector, total spending on digital transformation will jump roughly 18 percent in 2019 to a new high-water mark of $1.18 trillion. Gearing...

The 2019 State of IT Report from Spiceworks is out, and, as we could’ve predicted, upgrading outdated network infrastructure is the leading enterprise IT investment for the next year among leaders surveyed. Eighty-nine percent of those polled (which included IT execs across North America and Europe) expect their IT budgets to grow over the next 12 months. Stateside, many leaders...

What is digital transformation, exactly? If you ask senior enterprise leaders who took part in a recent report from CompleteSpectrum, you’ll be hard pressed to get a straight answer. According to the study, which polled 300 members of leadership teams at companies with between $15 million and $200 million in annual revenue, 94 percent said that digital transformation was a...

The primary aim of digital transformation -- a phrase that lacks a clear definition, but encompasses swapping out legacy tech for the latest cloud apps -- is to streamline processes across the enterprise. There’s the promise of faster solutions, more connectivity between remote offices, and the ability for business to scale up with ease (and at minimal cost). Done successfully,...

Trust is a central component of any company’s digital transformation. When offloading processes and applications that used to be managed in-house to SaaS providers, businesses have to be comfortable sharing data that historically was kept close to vest. This is especially true when it comes to performance monitoring solutions built to analyze all network traffic (even just packet headers). Without...
