Getting Hybrid IT Right By Charles Araujo, Intellyx Principal Analyst We define Hybrid IT as a management approach in which organizations create a workload-centric and value-driven integrated technology stack that may include legacy infrastructure, web-scale architectures, private cloud implementations along with public cloud platforms ranging from Infrastructure-as-a-Service to Software-as-a-Service. At Intellyx, we have a mantra that goes something like this: "We love confusion in the market. It gives us something to write about." Well, if confusion is what we like, Hybrid IT delivers it in spades. The tech industry is a buzzword-creating machine, but the truth is that all of these buzzwords serve a purpose. As an industry, we are in a constant struggle to distill, comprehend and communicate new and complex ideas that are arising at a dizzying pace. So the industry ... (more)

Is #DevOps Falling into the Maturity Trap? | @DevOpsSummit #AI #CloudNative

Guest post by Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo I was at a conference recently when I saw it. I sighed and shook my head. A development manager from a large enterprise organization was explaining how they had created a DevOps maturity model based on CMMI. They went on to describe their current state of maturity and their plans to get to ‘full maturity' in the next three years. He continued by explaining how they had presented this plan to executive management and subsequently received approval for a new ‘DevOps team.' Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity m... (more)

Preparing for the Next Disruption | @CloudExpo #AI #DX #FinTech #Blockchain

Preparing for the Next Disruption By Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo I'll never forget the day that I first encountered the Internet. It was 1989 when a friend who worked in aerospace showed it to me - and I immediately ignored it. I wasn't alone. Almost everyone missed the true impact it would have on the world. I originally told this story in my first book, The Quantum Age of IT: Why Everything You Know About IT is About to Change and went on to explain how this encounter had precipitated the three market forces that had changed everything. These three market forces ... (more)

Envisioning the AI-Driven Enterprise | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #DL DX #DeepLearning

As today's digital disruptions bounce and smash their way through conventional technologies and conventional wisdom alike, predicting their path is a multifaceted challenge. So many areas of technology advance on Moore's Law-like exponential curves that divining the future is fraught with danger. Such is the problem with artificial intelligence (AI) and its related concepts, including cognitive computing, machine learning, and deep learning. Today we have interesting but hardly revolutionary technologies like Apple Siri and Amazon Alexa. And tomorrow? If you listen to the doomsay... (more)

Integrating Legacy Technology into Digital Best Practice by ‘Modernizing in Place’

As enterprises undergo digital transformation, they soon run up against a sobering realization: everything must transform. Not just technology, but people and processes as well. It’s no wonder, therefore, that today’s executives are looking for ways to lower their risk – perhaps by taking shortcuts, or maybe by breaking up the Herculean task of transformation into manageable, bite-size pieces. For enterprises that depend upon certain legacy technologies – most notably, mainframes running COBOL – the challenge of transformation multiplies, as none of the options sound appealing. ... (more)
