The pool of technologies from this group focuses on the key components in building a digital business: communities of product, service, or solution developers (e.g., Fusion Team) and the platforms they use. These technologies provide feedback and understanding that optimize and accelerate the delivery of products, services, and solutions, as well as enhance business operations' resilience.A Fusion Team is a multidisciplinary digital business team with a centralized cloud workspace (hub) for project work. Gartner research shows that distributed concurrent projects involving a broad range of specialists can progress 2.5 times faster than centralized sequential efforts. Fusion teams are key elements of this type of distributed digital development model.
Cloud data ecosystems provide an integrated data management environment that adeptly supports the entire range of data workloads, from data science research to production data storage. Cloud data ecosystems provide optimized delivery and comprehensive functionality that is easy to deploy, optimize, and maintain. Their widespread implementation can take from two to five years and will be very beneficial for users.
This group of technologies also includes:
● Augmented Financial Operations
automates traditional DevOps concepts such as agility, continuous integration and deployment, as well as end-user feedback with financial management, budgeting, and cost optimization through the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning (ML) methods.
● Cloud resilience
is the use of cloud services to achieve sustainability advantages in economic, environmental, and social systems.
● Computational storage (CS)
offloads host processing from the main memory of the central processing unit (CPU) to the storage device.
● Cellular Security Management Architecture (CSMA)
is a new approach to the development of composable distributed security management tools that increase overall security efficiency.
● Data observability
is the ability to understand the state of an organization's data landscape, data pipelines, and data infrastructure through continuous monitoring, tracking, alerting, analyzing, and incident resolution.
● Dynamic Risk Governance (DRG)
is a new approach to the critical task of defining roles and responsibilities for risk management. DRG tailors risk management appropriately to each risk, enabling organizations to manage risks better and reduce audit costs.
● Industry cloud platforms
utilize foundational cloud services SaaS, "Platform as a Service" (PaaS), and "Infrastructure as a Service" (IaaS) to offer relevant industry bundle business and technical capabilities for a specific vertical as an integrated product.
● Minimum Viable Architecture (MVA)
is a standardized structure used by development teams to ensure timely and requirements-appropriate product development and iteration.
● Observability-Driven Development (ODD)
is a software development practice that provides detailed visibility and context of system state and behavior by designing systems that can be observed.
is a set of specifications, tools, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), and Software Development Kits (SDKs) that describe and support the implementation of open-source instrumentation and observability platforms for software
● Platform Engineering
is the discipline of creating and operating internal self-service developer platforms (IDPs) for software delivery and lifecycle management.
