BMC has released Digital Enterprise Management (DEM), a blueprint for companies to transform into digital enterprises while keeping their organisation secure and existing legacy systems operational.
“The transformation to digital services is a top priority for every CEO and public sector leader I meet, each seeking to seize market opportunities, increase productivity, improve customer satisfaction, lower costs and overcome the challenges presented by the digital economy,” said Paul Appleby, BMC executive vice president, worldwide sales and marketing.
“But for many CIOs and IT managers, the evolving technology landscape and transition to digital services is a complicated one,” said Appleby in a statement following DEM’s launch in Sydney.
“It’s not uncommon that IT organisations find themselves desperately struggling to secure the resources needed to not only maintain current systems, but also to develop new digital services too.”
According to BMC CEO Bob Beauchamp, to successfully manage this change to become a digital enterprise, technology has to be effectively managed.
“Leaders are striving to deliver better user experiences, while also searching for new revenue channels and product opportunities,” said Beauchamp.
“These transformations must be effectively managed, or companies run the risk of security breaches, operational shutdowns, wasted investments, and significant delays in changing the way they do business in the digital economy.
He said BMC’s Digital Enterprise Management blueprint “provides a clear path to successfully managing this digital transformation”.
BMC said DEM’s blueprint provides systems for orchestrating IT transformation so companies can rapidly innovate and move in real-time while keeping their enterprise secure and existing legacy systems operational.
BMC said the DEM systems remove roadblocks to digital transformation, helping organisations cost efficiently accelerate implementation of new digital services and mobile technologies to transform themselves into digital enterprises for competitive advantage.
BMC said this is done through a structured approach to IT strategy that focuses on four areas: Digital Service Management, Digital Enterprise Automation; Digital Service Assurance and Digital Infrastructure Optimisation.
