In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study refresh to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers.

Digital transformation encompasses both technological and human components. While many initiatives focus on ensuring that a company’s multi-cloud infrastructure is agile enough to meet changing demands around cloud mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), and big data, it’s equally important to empower business workers with the modern digital tools they need to be successful today. Artificial intelligence and machine learning can play a vital role on both of these fronts. In fact, 78 percent of CIOs and senior IT leaders are already looking to AI to address complexity,1 and by 2019, 30 percent of IT service desks will utilize machine learning to free up support capacity.2

As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration.

Im Dezember 2017 beauftragte Dell Forrester Consulting mit der Durchführung einer Fortsetzungsstudie, in der ermittelt werdensollte, wie die IT-Abteilungen von Unternehmen strukturiert sind. In der Studie wurden zwei Arten von IT-Konzepten untersucht: Digital Controller und Digital Transformer. Außerdem beleuchtete die Studie Trends und Herausforderungen, die die Vertreter beider Konzepte bei der PC-Bereitstellung sehen. Mit Digital Controllern assoziiert man häufig einen Top-down-Ansatz und eine lineare Struktur. Sie messen Sicherheit und Genauigkeit hohe Bedeutung bei. Digital Transformer hingegen legen den Schwerpunkt auf Innovationen sowie Mitarbeiter-und Kundenorientierung; für sie stehen Geschwindigkeit und Flexibilität an erster Stelle. Wenn Unternehmen mehr Verständnis für die Vertreter beider Ansätze entwickeln, können sie mit Problemen im Zusammenhang mit dem PC-Lifecycle-Management besser umgehen.

Cloud services are a pillar of a digital transformation,
but they have also become a thorn in the side of many
security architects. As data and applications that were
once behind the enterprise firewall began roaming
free—on smartphones, between Internet-of-Things
(IoT) devices, and in the cloud—the threat landscape
expanded rapidly. Security architects scrambled to adjust
their technologies, policies, and procedures. But just
when they thought they had a handle on securing their
cloud-connected enterprises, new business imperatives
indicated that one cloud wasn’t enough.
Modern enterprises operate in a multi-cloud world,
where the threat landscape has reached a new level of
complexity. Security teams are juggling a hodgepodge
of policies, threat reports, and management tools. When
each cloud operates in its own silo, the security architect
has even more difficulty supporting the CISO or CIO with a
coherent, defensible security posture.
