5 IT industry predictions for 2016 from Forrester and IDC

Here are five of the most important predictions -
1. Legacy vendors face a bleak future
It couldn’t be put more clearly: In its report, IDC states that “By 2020, More than 30 percent of the IT Vendors Will Not Exist as We Know Them Today.” In other words, nearly one-third of today’s vendors will be out of business, stripped-down shells of their former selves, or combined via mergers.

We’re already seeing this, of course. HP just cleaved itself into two companies. Citrix announced it will offload the GotoMeeting business unit and lay off 10 percent of its workforce as well. And, of course, Dell is in the midst of buying (or perhaps not) EMC.

However, this is just the warmup for what promises to be a wrenching time for the entire spectrum of legacy vendors – and the largest ones are the most at risk. It’s been clear for some time that they’re in trouble – no growth, missed earnings, excuses ranging from lousy salespeople to unfavorable exchange rates. The fact that growth has disappeared for these vendors is a leading indicator that things are about to get much, much worse.

The thing is, this isn’t a failure of execution, to be fixed with a CEO change or a large layoff. It’s a sign that the nature of the industry is changing, and these vendors aren’t delivering tomorrow’s solutions. The restructuring of the existing industry will be accelerated by a new phenomenon in the tech world – private equity.

Those of us who live in Silicon Valley smugly throw around the term disruption, and imply that any fallout is just collateral damage. The truth is that this restructuring will be extended, painful, disheartening – and inevitable.

2. Cloud providers will be winnowed down

Well, even if disruption occurs in traditional legacy vendor markets, they can always take refuge in the cloud, right? Not according to Forrester. In its prediction, it says:

The major public cloud providers will gain strength, with Amazon, IBM SoftLayer, and Microsoft capturing a greater share of the business cloud services market. Despite excellent technology and scale, Google will only begin to develop momentum in large-enterprise business in 2016. Even with innovative new players like Aliyun and DigitalOcean emerging, the number of options for general infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud services and cloud management software will be much smaller at the end of 2016 than the beginning.

I recall seeing a tweet from Lydia Leong (a savvy cloud analyst at Gartner, Twitter handle @cloudpundit) in which she said she is fielding inquiries from cloud service providers trying to figure out how to sunset their offerings.

Forrester goes on to say that users should “standardize on the cloud leaders.” In other words, we’ve reached the musical chairs stage of the CSP market, and you want to commit to providers sure to, so to speak, have a place to sit. This is, of course, a self-fulfilling prophecy – as users turn to the major providers, smaller providers end up with less revenue, thus forcing service shutdown, driving more business to the large providers … and so it goes.

This is not unexpected. In its 2014 predictions (see my discussion here), IDC said that the public CSP market would end up with six to eight players of scale, with remaining providers fighting over scraps.

Like all capital-intensive industries, this is turning into a battle of who has the biggest checkbook, and 2016 will see many current providers conclude their bank balance just isn’t big enough to stay in the market.

3. Big data gets, well, big

Big data is a phrase on everyone’s lips, and it has made data scientist, according to the Harvard Business Review, the sexiest job of the 21st century. This intense interest reflects the growing understanding that analyzing large amounts of data can offer insights previously unavailable or, worse, ignored in favor of “gut feel” and intuition.

What’s remarkable is how widely big data is being applied. There does not seem to be any area that big data, and its associated fields like machine learning and artificial intelligence, is not being applied. Big data is transforming drug discovery, healthcare, education, language translation, employment recruiting … in fact, it might be easier to list industries and tasks big data isn’t transforming than to list those it is.

But according to IDC, big data is only getting started. Today, only 1 percent of all apps use cognitive services; by 2018 (in other words, in three years), 50 percent will. Essentially, analytics will be embedded in every application, used to facilitate functionality or convenience.

One of the major challenges of big data is, naturally enough, how much storage it requires. This is an area the big cloud providers are jumping on. You’ve undoubtedly heard of IBM’s Watson, but Google, Microsoft, and AWS have all rolled out machine learning services as well as access to a range of very large datasets that can be used for analytics. One obvious implication of this trend is that it once again makes the large providers more attractive to the disadvantage of smaller CSPs that cannot make the investment to host machine learning services.

IDC’s prediction may be too optimistic in terms of timing, but it’s clear that big data will be an important area for enterprise IT for the foreseeable future.

4. Enterprises turn into software companies

So enterprises are turning away from traditional vendors and toward cloud providers. They’re increasingly leveraging open source. In short, they’re becoming software companies, or, as IDC puts it:

By the End of 2017, Two-Thirds of the CEOs of Global 2000 Enterprises Will Have Digital Transformation at the Center of Their Corporate Strategy.

By 2018, Enterprises Pursuing DX Strategies Will More than Double Software Development Capabilities; 2/3 of Their Coders Will Focus on Strategic DX Apps/Services.

Corporate IT is about to see its role and expectations change as never before. For many, this will be disconcerting. As I often put it: “For years, IT has asked for ‘a seat at the table.’ It’s terrifying when you finally get a seat and then everyone turns to you and asks ‘what should we do?’.”

But that’s the situation most IT organizations will find themselves over the next few years. While many companies outsourced their initial forays into mobile applications, there’s no way that you can build a digital enterprise on the back of external consultancies.

Furthermore, even if you could, no company could afford to do so. Being a digital enterprise is so critical to the future of every company that relying on an external party, and living with the inevitable inefficiencies, false starts, and missed communications, would be too dangerous.

Instead, IT will become the core driver of “how business does business.” The responsibility -- and expectations -- will be high. For those CIOs who rise to the challenge, it will be a heady time. Those unable to fulfill this role will face a gloomy future as they are discarded in favor of someone -- anyone -- seemingly better suited to the task at hand.

Make no mistake, as companies move toward their digital future, IT will be leading the way.

5. Developers are the scarce commodity

Of course, CIOs can’t do it on their own. They require an organization staffed with people capable of implementing the applications that will make the company a digital enterprise.

And everything about those applications will be different from traditional enterprise applications. They’ll use different languages. Different databases. Different frameworks. Different execution environments. In short, nearly everything will be new – and require a different set of skills from those appropriate to last-generation applications. IDC puts it this way:
By 2017, over 50 percent of organizations` IT spending will be for 3rd platform technologies, solutions, and services, rising to over 60 percent by 2020.

For a discussion of the third platform, see my blog post here. The bottom line is that the difference between “enterprise IT” and “technology vendor” will blur as both seek to implement technology solutions that form the basis of how their company operates.

Therefore, one thing you can expect to see is a brutal war for developers (which I wrote about two years ago here) as enterprise IT shops and tech companies battle for a limited pool of next-generation talent.

Frankly, I think this will require a significant mind shift on the part of both enterprise IT organizations as well as the larger entities of which they are part. IT has traditionally been viewed as a cost center with a focus on keeping a lid on budgets – and one place that enterprise IT has traditionally held the line on is salaries. In all too many enterprise IT organizations, developers are seen as odd-behaving interchangeable commodities. The emerging reality is that developers are critical resources, who will increasingly be able to write their own ticket.

And don’t imagine that your IT organization is protected because it’s located outside Silicon Valley. The demand for talent by valley companies is so high that they are more and more frequently placing centers of talent wherever it happens to be located – and that could very well be wherever you’re located.

In conclusion, both Forrester and IDC’s predictions are unusually direct statements of a very different world of IT, one in which software infuses every part of an enterprise and technical talent is critical. If I hadn’t read the reports, I would have been surprised to be told about their bluntness; reading them, you can see that it will be an incredibly tumultuous time for the industry. I wonder how their briefings are going these days?

Worldwide IT spending to rise 0.6% to $3.54 trillion in 2016: Gartner

BENGALURU: Global technology spending is expected to witness a marginal pickup in 2016, driven mainly by increased spending in the IT services market, according to technology research firm Gartner.

After witnessing a more than 5% drop in worldwide IT spending in 2015, global tech spending is expected to inch up by 0.6% to $3.54 trillion in 2016, Gartner said. The increase in spending is also being buoyed by lesser currency headwinds, which put a dampener on spending last year.

"The rising US dollar is the villain behind 2015 results," said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. "US multinationals revenue faced currency headwinds in 2015. However, in 2016 those headwinds go away and they can expect an additional 5 percent growth."

Gartner said that 2015 saw the largest US dollar drop in IT spending since it began tracking IT spending, with nearly $216 billion less spent on IT in 2015 than in 2014. Gartner added that 2014 spending levels won`t be surpassed until 2019.

The latest improved forecast from Gartner should bring much-needed relief to investors and traditional technology services firms such as IBM and Accenture, as well as large Indian outsourcing firms such as TCS and Infosys. Indian IT firms endured one of the toughest years on record in terms of growth due to lower IT budgets from top clients such as General Electric and Citigroup last year.

Gartner said spending in the IT services market is expected to return to growth in 2016, following a decline of 4.5 per cent in 2015.

IT services spending is projected to reach $940 billion in 2016, up 3.1 percent from 2015, Gartner said.

"This is due to accelerating momentum in cloud infrastructure adoption and buyer acceptance of the cloud model," Gartner said.

New Features in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2

Heres highlights of new features in JDE E1 Release 9.2

Simplified Upgrade process -
This upgrade process allows customers on EnterpriseOne 9.1 or 9.0 (update 2) to upgrade to EnterpriseOne 9.2 by applying only the incremental changed objects. This upgrade “uplift” methodology reduces the amount of code/objects that are changed during the upgrade, therefore reducing the time needed to retrofit and test when upgrading.

Please note:- There is both an Applications release and Tools release for 9.2, and you don’t need to apply both. You can upgrade the applications and tools independently.

EnterpriseOne 9.2 Tools Release Imp:- In order to upgrade to the EnterpriseOne 9.2 Tools release you must be on EnterpriseOne Applications release 9.0 or 9.1. Better management of User Defined Objects (UDOs)

This includes user customized grid formats, Watchlists, OneView reports, queries, composite applications, and E1 pages. The new Tools release provides an easy-to-use management process to review, approve, and deploy the user defined objects, empowering the users and reducing IT overhead. Here’s the tutorial on this new process, which utilizes the new web-based OMW (Object management workbench).

10 character user ID and password restriction is removed!

Yes, finally in 2015, we can have JD Edwards user IDs and passwords with a length greater than 10 characters. Although this seems like it may be a minor enhancement, many customers who want to integrate JD Edwards user ID/passwords with LDAP have faced the challenge of changing IDs and password to meet these restrictions – a very tedious process. With this restriction gone, integration to LDAP has become much easier.

EnterpriseOne 9.2 Applications Release

Advanced Job Forecasting

Customers in the construction or engineering lines of business may want to take a look at the Advanced Job Forecasting capabilities provided for 9.2. This is a powerful new forecasting tool that allows user to manage and forecast materials, cost changes, and skill sets for remaining project/job phases. Users can execute “what-if” scenarios, and create their own user-defined formulas and methods of computation for forecasting work. Here’s a tutorial on the new Advanced Job Forecasting features.

One View Financial Statements

For customer who have OneView for the EnterpriseOne Financial module, you now have the ability to create book quality financial statements or use the pre-built financial statements provided. The functionality provided includes specific formatting, calculations and totals to support the needs of financial reporting. This is a nice feature for end-users to create their own financial statement reports, including balance sheets, and income statements.

Accommodation of new accounting standards

Updates consider the new accounting standards for Recognition of Revenue issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). As well as updates for the enhancements for US-based employers, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has been enhanced to support the Affordable Care Act Employer Shared Responsibility provisions. These are important updates to remain compliant with government regulations.

Gartner, Inc. today (10/08/2014) highlighted the top 10 technology trends that will be strategic for most organizations in 2015. Analysts presented their findings during the sold out Gartner Symposium/ITxpo.

Gartner defines a strategic technology trend as one with the potential for significant impact on the organization in the next three years. Factors that denote significant impact include a high potential for disruption to the business, end users or IT, the need for a major investment, or the risk of being late to adopt. These technologies impact the organizations long-term plans, programs and initiatives.

We have identified the top 10 technology trends that organizations cannot afford to ignore in their strategic planning processes, said David Cearley, vice president & Gartner Fellow. This does not necessarily mean adoption and investment in all of the trends at the same rate, but companies should look to make deliberate decisions about them during the next two years.

Mr. Cearley said the top trends for 2015 cover three themes: the merging of the real and virtual worlds, the advent of intelligence everywhere, and the technology impact of the digital business shift.

The top 10 strategic technology trends for 2015 are:

Computing Everywhere

As mobile devices continue to proliferate, Gartner predicts an increased emphasis on serving the needs of the mobile user in diverse contexts and environments, as opposed to focusing on devices alone.

Phones and wearable devices are now part of an expanded computing environment that includes such things as consumer electronics and connected screens in the workplace and public space, said Mr. Cearley. Increasingly, its the overall environment that will need to adapt to the requirements of the mobile user. This will continue to raise significant management challenges for IT organizations as they lose control of user endpoint devices. It will also require increased attention to user experience design.

The Internet of Things

The combination of data streams and services created by digitizing everything creates four basic usage models Manage, Monetize, Operate and Extend. These four basic models can be applied to any of the four Internets. Enterprises should not limit themselves to thinking that only the Internet of Things (IoT) (assets and machines) has the potential to leverage these four models. For example, the pay-per-use model can be applied to assets (such as industrial equipment), services (such as pay-as-you-drive insurance), people (such as movers), places (such as parking spots) and systems (such as cloud services). Enterprises from all industries can leverage these four models.

3D Printing

Worldwide shipments of 3D printers are expected to grow 98 percent in 2015, followed by a doubling of unit shipments in 2016. 3D printing will reach a tipping point over the next three years as the market for relatively low-cost 3D printing devices continues to grow rapidly and industrial use expands significantly. New industrial, biomedical and consumer applications will continue to demonstrate that 3D printing is a real, viable and cost-effective means to reduce costs through improved designs, streamlined prototyping and short-run manufacturing.

Advanced, Pervasive and Invisible Analytics

Analytics will take center stage as the volume of data generated by embedded systems increases and vast pools of structured and unstructured data inside and outside the enterprise are analyzed. Every app now needs to be an analytic app, said Mr. Cearley. Organizations need to manage how best to filter the huge amounts of data coming from the IoT, social media and wearable devices, and then deliver exactly the right information to the right person, at the right time. Analytics will become deeply, but invisibly embedded everywhere. Big data remains an important enabler for this trend but the focus needs to shift to thinking about big questions and big answers first and big data second the value is in the answers, not the data.

Context-Rich Systems

Ubiquitous embedded intelligence combined with pervasive analytics will drive the development of systems that are alert to their surroundings and able to respond appropriately. Context-aware security is an early application of this new capability, but others will emerge. By understanding the context of a user request, applications can not only adjust their security response but also adjust how information is delivered to the user, greatly simplifying an increasingly complex computing world.

Smart Machines

Deep analytics applied to an understanding of context provide the preconditions for a world of smart machines. This foundation combines with advanced algorithms that allow systems to understand their environment, learn for themselves, and act autonomously. Prototype autonomous vehicles, advanced robots, virtual personal assistants and smart advisors already exist and will evolve rapidly, ushering in a new age of machine helpers. The smart machine era will be the most disruptive in the history of IT.

Cloud/Client Computing

The convergence of cloud and mobile computing will continue to promote the growth of centrally coordinated applications that can be delivered to any device. Cloud is the new style of elastically scalable, self-service computing, and both internal applications and external applications will be built on this new style, said Mr. Cearley. While network and bandwidth costs may continue to favor apps that use the intelligence and storage of the client device effectively, coordination and management will be based in the cloud.

In the near term, the focus for cloud/client will be on synchronizing content and application state across multiple devices and addressing application portability across devices. Over time, applications will evolve to support simultaneous use of multiple devices. The second-screen phenomenon today focuses on coordinating television viewing with use of a mobile device. In the future, games and enterprise applications alike will use multiple screens and exploit wearables and other devices to deliver an enhanced experience.

Software-Defined Applications and Infrastructure

Agile programming of everything from applications to basic infrastructure is essential to enable organizations to deliver the flexibility required to make the digital business work. Software-defined networking, storage, data centers and security are maturing. Cloud services are software-configurable through API calls, and applications, too, increasingly have rich APIs to access their function and content programmatically. To deal with the rapidly changing demands of digital business and scale systems up or down rapidly, computing has to move away from static to dynamic models. Rules, models and code that can dynamically assemble and configure all of the elements needed from the network through the application are needed.

Web-Scale IT

Web-scale IT is a pattern of global-class computing that delivers the capabilities of large cloud service providers within an enterprise IT setting. More organizations will begin thinking, acting and building applications and infrastructure like Web giants such as Amazon, Google and Facebook. Web-scale IT does not happen immediately, but will evolve over time as commercial hardware platforms embrace the new models and cloud-optimized and software-defined approaches reach mainstream. The first step toward the Web-scale IT future for many organizations should be DevOps bringing development and operations together in a coordinated way to drive rapid, continuous incremental development of applications and services.

Risk-Based Security and Self-Protection

All roads to the digital future lead through security. However, in a digital business world, security cannot be a roadblock that stops all progress. Organizations will increasingly recognize that it is not possible to provide a 100 percent secured environment. Once organizations acknowledge that, they can begin to apply more-sophisticated risk assessment and mitigation tools. On the technical side, recognition that perimeter defense is inadequate and applications need to take a more active role in security gives rise to a new multifaceted approach. Security-aware application design, dynamic and static application security testing, and runtime application self-protection combined with active context-aware and adaptive access controls are all needed in todays dangerous digital world. This will lead to new models of building security directly into applications. Perimeters and firewalls are no longer enough; every app needs to be self-aware and self-protecting.

Forrester: Top Technology Trends for 2014 And Beyond

This month, Forrester released its list of top technology trends for the three year time horizon. The author of the report, Forrester analyst Brian Hopkins makes the point that now that consumers and employees have continuous connectivity and an endless supply of apps, the CIO must drive the nimbleness that will be demanded by employees and customers, while he or she must also do so securely. These trends are so woven into the business drivers, that IT leaders must become much more strategic, providing the rationale for the changes that are afoot. With this background in mind, Forrester identifies the following ten technology trends for the 2014 through 2016.

1. Digital convergence erodes boundaries

Physical and digital worlds are converging. As a result consumers expect uniform service whether they are in the physical world or if they are in the digital world. The convergence of the business and personal use of technology is also fueling this trend.

2. Digital experience delivery makes (or breaks) firms

Forrester makes the point that “A great digital experience is no longer a nice-to-have; it`s a make-or-break point for your business as we more fully enter the digital age.” The report points to a growing number of firms that have chosen a mobile-first approach, but then falling flat because “systems of record cannot keep up with engagement needs.” To a greater extent, customers` impressions of a business are established through digital engagement forcing businesses to recognize that “software is the brand.” Some CIOs are losing their influence over the decisions in these areas as digital experience agencies are engaged by chief marketing officers and chief technology officers to a greater extent than by chief information officers.

3. APIs become digital glue

Forrester draws a comparison between service-oriented architecture (SOA) and applications platform interfaces (APIs). Like the former, the latter provides “open access to useful functionality through network-based services using technologies that are readily accessible from a broad range of programming environments.” The report sites as examples Amazon.com AMZN +1.2%’s product advertising API and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s API which represent business model innovation under this paradigm, while also highlighting the need for ever more sophisticated security given the exposure of data to a much broader set of individuals.

4. The business takes ownership of process and intelligence

Forrester highlights that IT is losing its control over business intelligence platforms, tools, and applications often due to IT’s inability to operate at the increased pace of the business. The report also notes that business process management, again a traditional domain of IT by-and-large, is increasingly becoming the domain of other functions as “a new class of users demands more user-friendly, self-service features to automate ad hoc processes without expensive and scarce IT resources.” As mobility increasingly becomes a strategic imperative of the entire business greater levels of process and data innovation should arise, again leading to various functional leaders to wrestle control away from IT.

5. Firms shed yesterday’s data limitations

Forrester maintains that “firms that embrace big data concepts, open data, and adopt new adaptive intelligence approaches are creating next generation smart systems that overcome limitations and create disruptive business innovations.” Cheaper, more agile, collaborative, and adaptive methods for analytics and data sharing are key. Forrester also notes that it is important to design “predictive apps able to sense their environment and respond in real-time, anticipate user action, and meet users in their moment of need.”

6. Sensors and devices draw ecosystems together

The Internet-of-Things will move from hype to reality with the ubiquity of connectivity and proliferation of devices, and wearable computing will go from niche to broader use. This will turn the traditional “spray-and-pray promotional campaigns” into marketing to ecosystems that emerge as a result of these changes.

7. “Trust” and “identity” get a rethink

The report posits that trust has been irreparably harmed as “it’s impossible to identify ‘trusted’ interfaces, many data breeches comes from trusted insiders, and the concept of ‘trust’ doesn’t even apply to data packets.” Consumerization of IT means that a greater number of IT devices and apps are being used in the workplace, especially by the digital natives. IT’s need to catch up with this will continue to be the norm. Forrester also points out that “the minimum cost of a data breech is $10 million, and in many cases it can be much larger”, and so it cannot be ignored.

8. Infrastructure takes on engagement

Forrester foresees a number of changes that will change infrastructure from barrier to progress to “enabler of business demand for engagement.” The report notes that leading companies are changing silo unified communications and collaboration, mobile device management, and desktop computing to more efficiently deliver and foster employee engagement and innovation. Also, “converged infrastructure and software-defined networks are leading to the emergence of the software-defined data center (SDDC) as the new organizational model for intelligent infrastructure management — as a result, technology infrastructure will be able to deliver blazing fast performance on a variety of workloads, all at an affordable cost and level of complexity.”

9. Firms learn from the cloud and mobile

Many firms have cloud strategies and mobile strategies, but the report makes the point that the benefits of the cloud will be limited by the speed with which traditional applications are re-written to take advantage of cloud. Without this redesign, benefits will be limited. Additionally, mobile strategies that have been a part of IT strategies across industries for a couple of years are now insufficient given the need to think of mobile as only one part of a broader omni-channel approach which requires a new kind of “application architecture that must be capable of supporting systems of engagement.”

10. IT becomes an agile service broker (or fades away)

Forrester notes that “Today’s leading IT organizations are moving from aligned IT to empowered business technology practices.” Examples include-

  • Becoming technology service broker
  • Modifying the software development lifecycle , architecture, and solutions development to deliver mobile, cloud, and big data solutions more readily
  • Changing portfolio management to focus on products rather than projects as projects are more narrow in focus which leads to narrower value
  • Replacing the success metrics to gauge project management “from time, cost, and resources” to “value, capacity, and time-to-market metrics.

Forrester: $2.1 Trillion Will Go Into IT Spend In 2013; Apps And The U.S. Lead The Charge

Forrester Research has released its annual look at the state of IT spend globally, and the analysts project that there will be $2.06 trillion invested across software, hardware, and IT services by enterprises and governments in 2013. Within that, U.S. will be the biggest-spending country by a long shot, and in a sign of the times apps will be the single-biggest spending category of all.

Overall, Forrester`s assessment of IT spend is a more sombre compared to Gartner`s, which a couple of weeks ago released its own IT spending estimates (again, not including consumer spend) and put the figure at $3.7 trillion. And it is a more sombre assessment compared to its figures in January, when it noted growth of 5.4% growth for 2013 in local currency terms and 3.3% in U.S. dollars.

As with Gartner, Forrester also puts in the proviso that currency fluctuations are having an impact, specifically because of the strength of the U.S. dollar compared to other currencies. Measured in U.S. dollars, growth has been lowered to 2.3%; in local currencies it`s 4.6%. (Gartner`s figures were 2% in U.S. currency; 3.5% in constant currency.) The continued recession in Europe and slowing growth in China will offset improvements in the US, Japan, and some emerging markets, writes analyst Andrew Bartels.

We`re reading through the long report for more insights; for now, here`s a look at some of the bigger takeaways:

Software is eating the world. Forrester`s big-picture look at spending puts software as the biggest general category for investments, at $542 million for 2013. Software is where most of the big changes in technology are taking place, writes Bartels. That is to say, while legacy, on-premise investments are languishing, those that focus on cloud-based implementations such as SaaS; and smart computing in the form of big data analytics and mobile apps are booming-following trends we`ve seen for a while now. Overall, software investments are set to grow 3.3% this year and 6.2% in 2014-growth rates that he concedes may not seem impressive [but still] stronger than any other tech category. A full breakdown of software spend is at the bottom of this post.

Tablets-and Apple-continue to lead the charge in hardware.If you look at the IT spending wheel above, it`s clear that PCs are the single-biggest category for computer equipment, at $134.2 million in 2013. But in fact PCs are a shrinking market. Traditional PCs, Bartels writes, will see just a 3% rise, despite the launch of Windows 8 operating system. So what`s growing? Tablets, and specifically the iPad. Forrester projects that sales of tablets to business and government will go up by 36% this year to $21 billion. Again, the big winner here continues to be Apple, taking $14 billion of that this year. Samsung Galaxy and the Surface from Microsoft are helping to expand the tablet market, without putting much of a dent in the growth of the Apple iPad so far.

Similarly, Apple, as well as Linux, continue to grow in the traditional PC category against Windows-powered machines, while the rest of the picture is relatively discouraging. There will be $135 billion spent on PCs in 2014, a rise of only $1 billion on 2013, with Windows-based devices down by $7 billion, and Apple Macs and tablets rising by $6 billion. Elsewhere in the hardware market, spending on storage hardware will be flat, purchases of servers will decline by 1%, and sales of computer peripherals will fall by 3%, Bartels writes. Indeed, earlier this year Forrester predicted that Apple would sell some $39 billion in hardware over the next two years.

The U.S. is eating the world.The strength of the dollar is one way that the U.S. is impacting global IT spend; the other is the fact that it is very much the biggest consumer of IT, accounting $819 billion in spend this year, according to Forrester`s estimates, rising to $875 million in 2014, inching up to be nearly the size of Western Europe and Asia combined in terms of IT spend.

Impressively for a market its size, of the big three regions, at 5.9% the U.S. also growing the most at the moment, nearly as much as the emerging (and still very small) market of Eastern Europe/Middle East/Africa (at 6.9%). By 2014, Latin America will emerge as the fastest-growing at a a rate of 10.7%. As to the others, Europe appears to be recovering somewhat after a huge, recession-led dip in 2012, spending $487 million in 2013; while Asia has this year taken up the baton as the region most hit by wider economic forces and will spend $492 million on IT across enterprise and government organizations.

10 critical ERP upgrade mistakes!

Major ERP software upgrades are often seen as a long, arduous process. But avoiding certain mistakes can help companies maintain maximum performance when implementing software improvements without disrupting users comfort with their current system. This is especially important for organizations that rely on their ERP software but need updates to keep their systems running at full potential. Here are 10 missteps to avoid when youre planning and implementing an upgrade.

1: Not explaining what a new system means to users before starting the project

If you want to doom an upgrade project, keep the users in the dark. We have done a lot of upgrades, and the one thing that always separates successful projects from the not-so-successful ones is communication with the users. The companies that explain up front the business case for upgrading, the benefits to the company and employees, and any changes in the end user experience (green screen to Web client, Windows client to Web client, etc.) are the most successful. Why? The software will work, the hardware will work, but it doesnt matter unless the users buy in. There is nothing more politically powerful than user perception, and if they decide the system doesn`t work, it won`t.

2: Not load testing the system with scripts and end users

Any system can run with a handful of users but what happens when it is fully loaded with users, batch jobs, and EDI? Most ERP systems today come preset to handle a typical user load, but is your load `typical`? How do you know? The only way to determine for sure is to load test the system. The most accurate way to load test a system is with load testing software and scripts and with real users. If you just use scripts, you won`t see the effects of user mistakes, and if you just use people, you can`t really simulate the effect of batch jobs and EDI. But if you can`t do both, pick one and run with it. Either one will be 10 times better than doing nothing.

3: Not performing a mock Go Live

A mock Go Live, or dress rehearsal, is the time when you find out whether everything will go as planned ahead of time. It is also the point when you capture timings for all the different Go Live tasks. If you dont practice under the same conditions you`ll have when you plan to go live (e.g., if Go Live is on a weekend, mock Go Live needs to be on a weekend), you will run into issues that you never planned for, facing questions such as:
* Do I have access to everything on a weekend?

* Will we run into backups or maintenance windows?

* Is the office open and is the AC on?

Some of these may sound trivial, but when you are under pressure and have spent thousands, sometimes millions, of dollars on a new system, the last thing you want is to be delayed because you missed something that was easy to catch. Always eliminate as many variables as possible.

4: Not taking change management and testing seriously

In the old days, we would apply `paper fixes` to address specific `opportunities in the software`. Today, everything is electronically packaged to address as many `similar` issues as possible. This can be a problem because the change you need may be a small part of a much larger fix or Electronic Software Update (ESU). An ESU can touch thousands of objects, as opposed to a paper fix, which would directly address your specific issue. With the advent of ESUs, you must thoroughly understand the impact of the change and regression test every business process, even if it was working properly before the change. You don`t want to introduce additional `opportunities` into your production environment.

5: Assigning an internal resource as the only project manager

A lot of customers think they can save money by eliminating the consultant PM and doing it themselves. For an upgrade, this is penny-wise and pound-foolish. A consultant PM`s focus is on upgrades so they know the pitfalls. Navigating these pitfalls ahead of time will make the difference between an on-time/on-budget system and a perpetual money pit.

6: Not communicating changes before they happen

We have been working with ERP systems since the early 90s, and one thing has always rung true: End users don`t like change because it causes them additional work. They would rather deal with the old system`s quirks and inefficiencies than adapt to a new system. The only way to make them happy is to provide a consistent user experience, and to do this, you must communicate, communicate, and communicate some more.

7: Delivering Training 1.0 in a Training 2.0 World

Today, companies are doing more business with fewer people. This means employees have to wear more hats than ever before. More responsibilities = more training = more work = less time to spend with their families. This is why classroom training (Training 1.0) by itself does not stick. With Training 2.0, you augment the classroom training by creating a Knowledge Vault of recorded videos detailing the most critical business processes for on-demand retrieval. This on-demand training reinforces what was taught in the classroom. It also allows the users to get help 24/7/365.

8: Not moving proprietary components to open business standards

Moving proprietary components to open business standards will speed up future upgrades. In addition, components that follow open business standards are by definition more prevalent. The two proprietary areas to focus on moving to open business standards are reports and interfaces. If you can move one or both, your next upgrade will be a lot less time intensive.

9: Not addressing security and archiving before upgrading

This one is simple. If you archive before you upgrade, you will save time and money because the table conversions will run faster. As an added benefit, archiving will speed up queries on large tables, which will improve the end-user experience. (As we`ve noted, this is an important ingredient to a successful project.) As for security, every attempt should be made to follow the `all doors closed` model. This is not always practical, but you should at least make it a serious topic of conversation every time you upgrade. The more a system grows, the more vulnerable it will become. No company wants a competitor or terminated employee with confidential information.

10: Assuming your internal tech people can pick up 15 years of experience in a couple of weeks

Upgrades don`t happen every day or every year. So it`s important to utilize the most experienced technology consultants to keep your system running optimally during the upgrade. If you`re like most companies, you probably have several consultants and internal people working on the project. If it is down all the time, no work is getting done but money is still being spent. Experienced consultants know the hundreds of INI settings, thousands of conversions, multiple OS/network settings, protocols, load balancers, etc., like the back of their hand and will keep the system performing during the upgrade. The technology part of the upgrade project is the foundation of your `house`. If the foundation is cracked, the house will come down.

Tools Release 9.1

As documented on the EnterpriseOne Tools Releases page of the JD Edwards Update Center, Oracles general policy is to expire a Tools release when the next Tools release becomes generally available, and to cease patching the prior Tools release approximately 12 weeks later. However, because Tools 9.1 is not compatible with Applications releases prior to 9.0, and due to the significant amount of change in Tools 9.1, Oracle intends to extend the support and patch period for Tools 8.98.x at least through the Extended Support period for Applications release 8.12, which is April, 2014. Customers also can continue to run Tools 8.98.x with Applications Release 9.0 during this period.
