Disruptor No. 5: Cloud systems create new silos

The purchasing rules continue to blur as line-of-business leaders now have access to new applications in minutes thanks to cloud technology. This has created another critical business challenge – the rise of cloud-system silos. As businesses clamor to bring together the islands of data now housed in a variety of cloud applications, the top opportunity for SIs in the coming years will be to integrate that data. SIs will be increasingly tasked with bringing all of that disparate data into one central nerve center to drive responsive businesses.

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.
