    System Integrators Play Increasingly Critical Role in Enterprise System Implementation

    Few organizations have the skills and experience to implement new enterprise systems without the help of an outside systems integrator. As a result, the percentage of organizations that outsource system implementation/integration tasks is relatively high, and those that do outsource some or all of those tasks are generally successful. This Research Byte provides a look at the overall profile of customer experience with the use of systems implementation/integration outsourcing providers.

    If Disaster Recovery More Critical than Ever, Why Did DR Outsourcing Decline?

    : In today’s economy, where businesses increasingly rely on the IT department for day-to-day operations, being able to recover from a disaster or system failure is more important than ever. Because of that reality, many IT organizations find value in disaster recovery outsourcing, where a service provider is responsible for off-site data storage, recovery data centers, or redundant systems. Nevertheless, the outsourcing of DR services has still not recovered since its decline in 2016. This Research Byte analyzes the five-year trend in DR outsourcing and explores some possible reasons for the decline.

    Digital Masters 2020 – COVID-19 Redefining Frontier of Digital Transformation

    As IT leaders are aware, cloud systems are essential for digital transformation. That growing awareness is reflected in the surge of public cloud adoption, which grew by about 35% in 2019. But, the advent of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 has accelerated enterprise adoption of cloud and hybrid cloud infrastructure. Many companies are now honing their roadmaps for cloud-led digital transformation and have shown clear intent to accelerate investments. As a result, we expect the growth rate of public cloud services to reach 40%-50% in 2020.. Additionally, we expect adoption of industry-specific, cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions to grow three-fold this year.

    DBA Outsourcing All Over the Place

    Database administration outsourcing often leads to satisfied customers who save money. But despite that track record, the use of DBA service providers is not widely practiced. Even in the face of outsourcing success, many companies are choosing to keep their database administration in-house. Perhaps this is because, as companies becoming increasingly data-driven, databases become the crown jewels for the organization. This Research Byte provides a look at the outsourcing frequency in context of our full report, Database Administration Outsourcing Trends and Customer Experience.

    SAP S/4HANA – Laying a foundation for digital transformation

    Tens of thousands of SAP customers face a decision in the next six years. As the end-of-support deadline for SAP ECC approaches in 2027, implementation labor costs for SAP’s next-generation S/4HANA ERP system are expected to skyrocket due to a lack of skilled resources. As a result, about 30% of service providers’ investments over the next 12 months are aimed at certifying their employees for S/4HANA. They’ll do this by leveraging SAP learning platforms, developing in-house learning programs, and establishing S/4HANA training programs in partnership with universities for their students.
