Today all businesses battle with unprecedented competitive pressures. In order to succeed—or even survive—
they must rapidly adapt to constantly changing environments, in every industry and sector. What does this
mean for IT leaders? Transformation, on all fronts.
The very factors driving digital transformation in businesses are also pressuring IT organizations to transform.
Customer expectations have increased. Companies live and die by the applications they provide to their customers
and employees. A smartphone is the modern bank branch. The palm of your hand is replacing traditional brick-and-mortar
stores. Access without delay or interruption, 24/7, is the new normal. If they can’t get what they want, when
they want it, customers go elsewhere.
Digital transformation is reshaping the business landscape faster than at any time in history. It used to take decades to disrupt a market, but natively digital companies such as Uber and Airbnb have disrupted their industries in just half a decade. Digitization is creating new winners and losers at an unprecedented rate. Organizations that adopt a digital strategy will leapfrog the competition, while those that do not will risk becoming irrelevant within five years.
One important step in becoming a digital enterprise is becoming an agile organization—that is, having the ability to take advantage of market opportunities faster than the competition. This shift to being an agile business has now become a top initiative for IT and business leaders. However, business agility cannot be achieved without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology to make IT more agile in 2014, according to ZK Research.
Diese sich schnell weiterentwickelnde digitale Welt definiert auch die Beziehung zwischen Ihrem Unternehmen und Ihren Kunden neu. Die Kunden erwarten von ihren bevorzugten Marken heute eine komfortable, interaktive User Experience.
Auch die Security ist ein wichtiges Anliegen. Die Risiken wachsen, da Unternehmen und Kunden immer mehr vertrauliche Daten austauschen.
In der digitalen Wirtschaft sind Anwendungsprogrammierschnittstellen (APIs) unerlässlich, um Ideen schnell umzusetzen und neue Geschäftschancen zu nutzen. Sie sind die Bausteine der digitalen Transformation und ermöglichen es Unternehmen, eine herausragende Customer Experience bereitzustellen, neue Umsatzquellen zu erschließen und Mitarbeiter, Partner, Anwendungen und Geräte jederzeit und überall mit Daten zu verbinden.

Organizations are at a strategic crossroads. According to IDC analysts,1
two-thirds of CEOs will
center their corporate strategies around digital transformation initiatives. The goal of digital
transformation is only partly to make existing functions more effective. The greater goal is to be
able to do new things and use existing data in new, better ways.
Yet, 72% of current IT spending2—and the focus of IT resources—is on maintaining existing
systems. This creates tension between what needs to be done today and what should be done
for the future.
Middle-tier applications, according to IDC,3
are the core of a digital transformation strategy
because they provide data integration, messaging, and application programming interface (API)
management. Middle-tier applications also provide a platform for application development and
management that can handle traditional enterprise applications and cloud-native, distributed
Specifically, a Java™ EE-based application platform can

Once upon a time, several generations ago (in technology years), IT departments were internal departments, focused on maintaining infrastructure and services within the company. Some companies may have had external-facing services, particularly web services, but this was still generally a narrow and restricted area. IT wasn’t a revenue-generating or strategic department; it was a supporting environment viewed as a cost center.
One of the outcomes of an infrastructure-focused environment is that developers lost a sense of what their code was doing. Release cycles were long, and changes were slow. A developer would work on something and throw the code into testing or operations, and it would be released months later. Because of that long lead time, engineers lost the joy of being a developer—of creating something and seeing it work in real life.
One of the great, powerful changes with digital transformation and related cultural and technology changes like DevOps is that it reintroduce

Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability, and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. We propose that successful execution of these initiatives within the confines of a strictly managed budget requires a new approach to integration, one centered around APIs.
Our recommended approach, API-led connectivity, builds on the principles of re-use first outlined by SOA, while avoiding many of the pitfalls that limited the success of heavyweight SOA implementations.
In this whitepaper, you will learn:
What forces drive digital transformation in federal government, and what role integration plays in supporting digital transformation
How a civilian federal agency leveraged APIs to modernize legacy systems and accelerate the speed of integration
How to build out an API-led architecture within a government agency to accelerate project

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
