CAPE - An Integrated Platform to Deliver Tomorrow’s Enterprise IT
VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) has become a deﬁning characteristic of the times we live in today. This is driving organizations in all industry verticals to accelerate innovation and constantly re-think markets, business models, products and organizational processes. Technology has moved from being an enabler for Business to coming at the forefront and becoming Business. As an example - the CEO of one of the largest insurance compa nies wants the company to be “a technology company with a banking license”. The Global CIO of a large real estate organization is driving a shift to an “Uber-like technology platform company for brokers”.
Whether an organization is looking at driving Digital initiatives or modernizing and optimizing traditional capabilities, there is now a broad alignment on prioritizing two key goals - driving faster time-to-market and delivering superior customer experience. Consequently, new approaches to structure, platforms, methods and automation have emerged over the last few years primarily inspired by start-ups and digital natives.
