Description
"The Transformers" is all about Simplification and the Digital Enterprise. The story takes you on a journey through the digital world in times when economic conditions force companies to manage their bottom-line rigorously. Despite these conditions, digitization is in full swing. Digital strategies that are simple and understandable can create competitive advantages for companies' futures, shielding them from potential future threats. Published right in time, the book The Transformers shows how companies can immediately save cost with data transformation at the push of a button, and, at the same time, accelerate its digitization. It will empower the reader to drive transformation and end-to-end information management of the digital core successfully. "The Transformers" lays out the digital building blocks for businesses and introduces Artificial Intelligence and digital platforms to tackle Big Data. Also included, checklists for Digital Business Transformation enhance the readers' understanding while demonstrating its applicability to digitization. The value of enterprises' core data shines like crown jewels that absolutely demand protection and security. The book illustrates data life cycle management with the historization of old data in terms of preservation and protection as the logical consequence. The heart of the book consists of two in-depth explanations of technical platforms needed to conquer the Big Data waves. The SAP HANA 2.0 platform, with its in-memory database, transforms the meaning of and the value out of Big Data with many advanced analytical capabilities. The Historization platform JiVS IMP by Data Migration International complements the operational enterprise systems with sophisticated data transformation capabilities realizing major value scenarios. In combination, both platforms together allow significant simplification of data management for real-time data business models. Strategic thinking and developing strategies, in principle, is an art more than 2,500 years old. From Battlefield to Greenfield, The Transformers bridges the time-gap from ancient China with its famous war strategist Sun Tzu who lived around 500 BC, to our digital era today. The fighting happened then and happens today in business with arms, battlegrounds, and warriors. Strategizing victories and winning battles has never moved out of the central thinking of leaders. The readers can touch and feel Digital Business Transformation with stories about the digital journeys of enterprises across different industries. And the 'Tips from the Top' with Thomas Failer, founder of Data Migration International, Bjoern Braemer, Global leader of SAP's MOVEMENT program, and Peter Hartmann, the former CIO of the Geberit Group, conclude the insights to simplify digitized business models and the impact of leadership to plan and to execute on the road to success. The book's audiences include C-suite business leaders and all decision-makers who drive transformational business or Information Technology programs.
