Disruptor No. 2: Big IT implementations face extinction

Tedious software evaluations and drawn-out implementations are an expensive and unsustainable practice. To compete in today's dynamic business environment, SIs must move away from large, upfront fees and focus on harnessing new revenue streams from packaged, repeatable solutions. Growth for progressive SIs will increasingly come from selling configurable solutions that address specific cloud-to-cloud or cloud-to-premise implementations and integrations.

The growth of the "integrated enterprise" depends on connecting disparate cloud systems to make them work for today's dynamic business environment, and innovative systems integrators (SIs) will be the catalyst. The cloud is transforming the SI focus from implementation/customization to long-term business solutions that deliver the agile, future-proof technology roadmaps that today's C-level executives demand.

Executives from top business consulting firm Armanino and data integration experts from Scribe Software share their take on the five disruptive forces changing the game for leading systems integrators and how they need to evolve to make the most of the new cloud realities.
