A Dead Economist’s Argument for Cloud Computing
Fri, Mar 27th 2015 8:38p   Amir Sehic
In 1815, after Duke of Wellington ends years of war between the United Kingdom and France by defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, the UK parliament passes the “Corn Laws” which prohibit import of cheap grain from France. The motivation is obviously to protect British land owner’s monopoly, but the argument for why the UK shouldn’t be buying French grain is based on Adam Smith’s principle of absolute advantage. British farmers can produce more grain than the same number of French farmers, so

Financial Insights Into Costs For New Digital Applications
Fri, Mar 27th 2015 12:00p   JP Morgenthal
When I initially wrote my blog “Making Financial Sense of PaaS” it was to crowdsource my estimates comparing building and operating a new mobile application for a year using various platform architectures. The platform choices ranged from n-tier on-premise using licensed software to using a hosted PaaS. The blog resulted in some excellent conversation and feedback leading me to produce “Making Financial Sense of PaaS – Part Deux”, which illustrated the estimates for businesses that eff

The CIO Role in Digital Transformation
Thu, Mar 26th 2015 4:03p   Eric Roch
The CIO article, “Is it time for CIOs to step up and rule the digital world?” asks a good question. Can the CMO better lead a digital transformation and align IT with what is increasing a digital business than the CIO? This is an oversimplified question asking who but not what needs to be done? Specific to IT, what does the roadmap look like to achieve the digital transformation including removing aging IT systems that are a barrier to change? Modernizing IT systems is likely not what a CMO

Role of Customer Experience in Digital Transformation
Wed, Mar 25th 2015 11:57a   Michael Porter
David Stallsmith and I recently gave a presentation on customer experience as it relates to digital transformation. I like David’s viewpoint on any transformation effort must include an “outside-in” view of an organization. You can’t afford to look through already clouded glasses with only internal people.  Here’s a snippet.

Here’s another example of Digital Transformation in action. In this case, I highlight Hilton’s publicly available information on the company’s huge initiative to change the hotel experience via mobile and web with a whole lot of back-end change.

How Mobile Apps Can Replace Your Intranet
Mon, Mar 23rd 2015 4:59p   Rich Wood
Mobile is one sticky form factor.  So sticky that many states are finding it necessary to legislate people out of using their phones while driving.  In other words, the mobile experience is so compelling that some people literally won’t put down their phones unless you make using them illegal. Meanwhile, intranets have traditionally struggled with user adoption.  I’m fairly certain every successful intranet project known to man has featured a “user adoption” component

11 Strategic Issues Facing CIOs in 2015
Mon, Mar 23rd 2015 10:32a   Erin Moloney
When we talk about digital transformation here at Perficient, we are often talking about big data, cloud, mobile and social.   In a recent Forbes article titled “CIO Lessons Learned: My Approach To The Top 10 Strategic Issues Of 2015“, Mark Sunday of Oracle says, “the CIO must be adept at understanding and responding to business requirements, executing on technology projects, and supporting customers in new and better ways.” We couldn’t agree more.

Perficient released a snippet from a recent Digital Transformation Webinar.  This example focuses on a company who started their digital transformation which expanded to much more than a front facing mobile app.

Digital Trends and Impacts
Fri, Mar 20th 2015 4:41p   Shankar RamaNathan
Digital Transformation has been happening for a while, what is different now compared to earlier years of digital transformation, is the factors which determine the Transformation. Who is changing the game ? the speed and the volume of information available. It is fast because it is just not the companies who changes the customer engagement but each consumer armed with the power of a mainframe equivalent of yester years and has the ability to dictate the rules of digital engagement through disr
