Disruptor No. 3: IT budgets go flat

Most companies spend the majority of their IT budgets on maintaining IT systems rather than business innovation. In fact, tight IT budgets are driving businesses to look for agile, proven IT solutions without high upfront costs to fulfill new technology requirements. To ensure their spot in the cloud-era evolution, SIs must become the ongoing IT caretakers and assume traditional IT maintenance responsibilities such as upgrades and integration so that client IT departments can focus more time on innovation. SIs will also need to continuously customize their solutions to meet shifting needs and keep pace with business change.

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.
