At the end of the year, the time is right to take a look at the balance sheet, but also to set a number of new goals. And no, there will be no rest for the Chief Information Officer in the coming year. Automation, the war for talent and business alignment remain on the agenda in 2020, without forgetting the operational side of IT.
If there is one term in vogue in ICT these days, it has to be AI or artificial intelligence. According to Gartner, AI’s adoption rate has increased from 4% in 2018 to 14% in 2019. But still, AI covers many realities. It is therefore important to focus on technologies that offer the biggest potential or return on investment.
These days, a company’s success is measured by its agility, its ability to react to technological change, improve its competitiveness and conquer new markets. In the wake of the DevOps and NoOps methodologies, DevSecOps or the integration of IT security in the complete life cycle of applications seems to be a must.
In modern business, data is the new oil. Consequently, a company must be capable of collecting, storing and processing large volumes of structured and unstructured data to realize a competitive advantage. An engine like ElasticSearch may help find the needle in the proverbial haystack…
The IT department of an organisation must be aligned with the business needs. It can’t be developed in a traditional way anymore, knowing that the company must be proactive and flexible. Hence the emergence of Devops and agile development, or even of NoOps. This agility is not conceivable without containers...

Full automation of IT operations - in other words: NoOps - is driven by the intensification of IT automation and the emergence of cloud computing. The goal is to limit - or even eliminate - the intervention of IT specialists when deploying and maintaining applications. The resources thus freed can then be allocated to new assignments.
With the advent of the cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS), shadow IT is gaining ever more ground within today’s companies. Should your IT department regard this rising new trend as a threat, at the risk of losing credibility with their colleagues and maybe even some customers? Or does it offer them an opportunity to better manage their IT infrastructure and provide better IT services to end users?
Cybersecurity isn’t merely the concern of your IT department: it is everyone's business. Not only does it concern all levels of your decision-making, up to the highest level, it also concerns each and everyone of your employees. Not to mention your external partners, since your company is increasingly opening up to the outside world.
While the cloud clearly remains one of the cornerstones of your company's IT flexibility, a new style of architecture is now increasingly needed: microservices. It promises greater ease of development and deployment, better scalability, easier maintenance and more flexibility in the way you engage with technology.
Even when the cloud has caused much ink to flow, it seems that most organizations prefer hybrid cloud, combining private and public cloud, to enjoy the best of both worlds. Transparency and portability remain the big challenges. Hence the need to call on the services of a professional provider to make the right choice.
