The Need for Change Management is Everywhere!
Tue, May 26th 2015 10:32a   David Chapman
I was talking to a gentleman at the pool last night as we wrapped up a great Memorial Day weekend.  He was telling me about the opening of a renovated restaurant at a private club, for which he’s overseeing the construction and has ultimate responsibility for.  This restaurant is going to be a relatively high end establishment, with both high quality food and service. He was telling me the team is pressing hard for a July 1 opening, and like anything else, he expects there will be some hiccu

Change Management – The soft side of projects? Not so fast!
Thu, May 21st 2015 9:46p   David Chapman
How often do you hear Change Management referred to as “the soft side of the project?” Maybe you’ve even done it yourself.  Just last week, I was at a client site, describing what I do to a client employee, and the response from the client was, “Oh, you deal with people – the soft stuff.” I’d like to take a moment and challenge that assumption. All projects should have a target return on investment (ROI), which is the benefit we hope to achieve by performing the project.  As Tim

How Not to Lose a Job Before Starting
Thu, May 21st 2015 9:31p   David Price
At Perficient, generally and specifically here on the digital transformation blog, we spend a lot of time discussing change: how companies want to change, how they need to change. How eCommerce and marketing are changing the relationship between consumers and company. We provide examples on what executives need to do to change their relationships with customers. The changing relationship of customers with other customers are themes. Today, I thought we would discuss another aspect of the change:

What is Service Virtualization and why we need it ?
Tue, May 12th 2015 10:15a   Susheel Kumar
Service Virtualization emulates the behavior and data of dependent systems such a way that represents the dependent system without any constraints, thus allowing software to be developed and delivered faster, with lower costs and higher reliability. Before Virtualization: After Virtualization: Constraints which affect development and testing at various SDLC phases: Dependent component/services still not completed Dependent component/services not available due to maintenance or system issu

Private APIs Vs Public APIs
Tue, May 12th 2015 10:15a   Susheel Kumar
Private APIs : APIs which are used within organization to build apps. Apps built on private APIs can be used inside organization or released to public using various channels like company site, app store. Partners can use private APIs to build apps. Private APIs enable faster business integration with partners. Avoid dependency on external APIs and apps, For e.g. public API is discontinued. Public APIs: Expanding reach across various platform and devices. Increased brand value. Creativity has

Enterprise Architecture Models for Digital Transformation
Mon, May 11th 2015 11:43a   Eric Roch
Enterprise Architects learned long ago the benefits of describing architecture in different perspectives or views. John Zachman, gave us a structured way of viewing and defining an enterprise architecture in the 80s. But in many companies enterprise architecture (EA) has evolved to technologists that set architecture standards often without much insight into corporate objectives. The goals of EA are to define the architecture of the enterprise and guide the organization to create the business st

Cramming vs. Learning – It Still Matters
Mon, May 11th 2015 11:10a   David Chapman
Did you ever cram when you were in college?  If you’re like me, you did, and probably on more than one occasion.  There was that big test looming, and well frankly, you just waited a little too late to get started preparing for it.  The night before the exam, you’d spend most of the light stuffing concept after concept, and fact after fact, into your brain, grab a few hours of sleep, maybe a cup of coffee, and then head to your class where you’d regurgitate all that you could remember f

3 Key Points in the Customer Experience Battle
Thu, Apr 30th 2015 3:15p   Michael Porter
Daniel Rabbitt over on our Oracle Blog had a great post on winning the customer experience battle. It was good enough that I wanted to summarize it and point you over to the larger post. His basic point is that, “A great customer experience can be an asset more valuable than physical resource or intellectual property.” There are a few key points you need to consider: Consumption of innovation drives success in the cloud,  e.g. makes innovation important.

No Real Transformation Without Data & Security
Thu, Apr 30th 2015 12:24p   Neetu Shaw
When it comes to the top concerns for CIOs and CTOs, Data and Security still secure the highest points, but Cloud and Infrastructure are not far behind. According to an annual review by Janco Associates Inc., an international consulting firm, here’s how these concerns fall: 1) Security: 68% 2) Cloud Computing: 55% 3) Infrastructure: 48% 4) Consolidation of legacy Data: 44% 5) Big Data: 40% If you combine 4) and 5), DATA is the one that CXO’s lose the most sleep on.
