VENDREDI 31 MAI 2019 BIZWEEK ÉDITION 243 A valued lieutenant of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Arun Jaitley takes leave from new Cabinet. He wrote a letter, on Wednesday 29 May, to informthe Prime Minister and cited health issues as main reason for his decision [see his letter] Among the structural reforms pursued over the last five years, Arun Jaitley was instrumental in thrashing out the political consensus needed for the legislative process and subsequent implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) — the first aimedat promoting seamless trade across the country — and the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) — to unshackle the stressin the banking sector.

VENDREDI 31 MAI 2019 BIZWEEK ÉDITION 243 LA TOUR 2019 CONNECTIVITY BENCHMARK REPORT Integration challenges are slowing digital transformation progress A new report by application network provider MuleSoft* has revealed a number of consistent difficulties experienced by global organizations as they undertake digital transformation initiatives. While the organizational DNA of today’s enterprises is shifting to become increasingly digital, IT organizations face several persistent business challenges. IT and businessinefficiencies, disconnected systems and applications, and limited resources are three of the top concerns for IT organizations in 2019. With the growing investment in disconnected technologies, such as such as security (57%), big data/analytics (55%), IoT (49%), and AI (36%), the IT delivery gap continues to widen The global study undertaken by MuleSoft in December 2018 and published this month boasts more than 600 respondents across countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, Australia, Singapore, and China. The report of the application network provider has found integration to be the key challenge. The vast majority of businesses say only a small proportion of their applications are integrated with each other, while demand on IT teams has grown well beyond budgets and capacity in many cases. According to the report, only 36% of IT leaders report their organization offers a completely connected customer experience. The vast majority of organizations (97%) are currently undertaking or plan to undertake digital transformation initiatives — through technologies including mobile, cloud, and analytics. Their key goals are increasing efficiency in IT (79%) and the wider business (77%) alongside improving the customer experience (71%). But in a market where digital is the threshold for competition, organizations must tackle a new set of challenges if they are to come out on top. « Though the goal is clear, businesses are struggling to overcome the traditionally fragmented way of operating. To truly stand out in a market where every organization is digital, enterprises must go beyond adopting digital tools, overcome several persistent business challenges, and strive for digital maturity to shape the market. » IT leaders are feeling more pressure in 2019 than ever before to rethink the way things have been done in the past. Despite the fact that IT project demands will increase by 32% this year, the majority (77%) of IT respondents will see a budget increase of less than 10%. And already, the majority (69%) of their time remains dedicated to keeping the lights on instead of innovating new solutions for the business. This year, technology teams are facing new demands from the growing number of applications, increasing project needs from line of business owners, and implementation of new technologies. The growing demands on IT The growing need for IT support across the businessis reflected in the increasing number of projects that the department is involved in each year. On average, IT decision makers are being asked to deliver 32% more projects year over year. However, only 36% report that they were able to deliver all projects asked of them last year. In order to meet the increasing needs of the business, IT leaders are looking for new ways to streamline and manage systems, data, and devices across the enterprise. Integrating hundreds of applications across the enterprise While the number of individual applications in use in organizations remains high — more than half (53%) report having 800 or more applications in use, with 43% having 1,000 or more — the percentage of those that are connected or integrated remains stagnant at 29% (both this year and last year). The majority of IT decision makers (59%) find it difficult to introduce new applications or technologies or make changes to existing applications (65%) because of their IT infrastructure. Additionally, IT is concerned with keepingup with new applications and technologies the businessis investing in. Eighty-four percent say that integration challenges are slowing digital transformation progress, while a similar proportion (83%) report data silos create business challenges in their organization. Integration needs span across the business As the key enabler of integration within the organization, IT is being asked to deliver 32% more projects on average year over year in addition to its more traditional role of keeping the lights on. As observed earlier, what was once an IT-specific need for integration has now expanded to business units across the organization. The vast majority (92%) of respondents say integration needs span beyond IT, with each business unit requiring a unique use case for integration. While 22% of the IT budget is spent on integration each year on average, worryingly this figure has not changed year on year, suggesting that IT is expected to approach their new role as enabler with limited resources at their disposal — and need to do more with less. Growing disconnected technology investments in 2019  : security, big data, and IoT The majority (59%) of respondents report that their team finds it hard to introduce new technologies because of their legacy technology systems while 65% report that it’s difficult to make changes to a particular system or application as a result. As businesses invest in new and disconnected technologies, the IT delivery gap continues to widen. Many of the most common technologies in scope for investment are centered on the customer  : security (57%), big data/analytics (55%), IoT (49%), and AI/machine learning (36%) — to protect, analyze, and enhance experiences for the wider benefit of the end user. Each of these technologies demands IT’s time and resourcing to implement. * Note  : MuleSoft provides a widely used integration platformfor connecting SaaS and enterprise applications in the cloud and on-premises 5
