Delivering Digital Transformation using Modern IT Architecture
Digital Transformation has been the talk of the town and has grabbed the attention of executives across numerous industries. This transformation seems to be an unstoppable one, owing to the rate at which technology has evolved over the years. It has fostered quicker innovation as business houses are realizing that digital transformation has given them a significant edge over their competitors.
Experiencing a change of this kind requires fundamental disruption at every level of the organization that causes lines of separation between functional areas of a business. This disruption is also seen in relationships between customer and user, data and applications, and in areas that are impacted by security strategies, which reshapes the way these elements are defined. Business leaders should consider these realities in order to drive digital performance.

In order to bring in the necessary digital transformation, businesses need a contemporary IT architecture to visualize the performance of digital initiatives. The performance management for IT and related services that are dependent on these networks is challenging, as they do not have a holistic view of activities.
Similarly, Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are reshaping network security, more so because of their advanced features and capabilities, allowing business to use them and outdo competitors and rule out potential threats. Till date, network security processes have been administered and maintained mostly by humans. This provides a definitive conclusion that there will be vulnerabilities owing to human errors, which is an in-built hazard on its own. For example, a user having the updated version of the database patched OpenSSL, and secure Firewall, the exposure level is minimized and gives a falsified assumption that can raise serious consequences that is deadly for the security of the network.
