6 Benefits of the Integrated Ecosystem

In the living world, nothing exists in a vacuum. Even if it doesn’t look like it, everything works together and forms a broad system – the ecosystem. We can (and must, in fact) apply this concept of integrated ecosystems to technology as well. It’s the age of big (and getting ever bigger) data, and everything that’s not connected at present will be linked together soon.  That’s why the ecosystem is the right metaphor for what’s been emerging in business. The linkages are growing and interacting. And the impact is huge. Users are getting better and greater access not just to information they need but to priceless new sources of insight and inspiration – all of which makes their work that much better and more efficient.

*Please note that Etelesolv changed its company name to Cimpl in 2016. Technology is constantly evolving and the level of connectivity enabled by mobile applications is becoming more all-permeating each and every day. The ability to bring individuals to places they’ve never been or show them sights they’ve never imagined seeing is one such technological capacity whose increasing reach continues to impress.

Enterprise Digital Footprint (Enterprise Asset Management 2.0)

The digital universe is expanding “The digital universe is expanding.” This elegant statement by Gartner neatly describes the ever-broadening scope of technological activity that will markedly impact all businesses in significant fashion. The increasing consumerisation and availability of technology products has eroded a portion of the IT department’s authority in dictating the makeup of a firm’s IT environment. IT managers will have to develop a greater grasp of technology and management trends to avoid being shut out by other business units on matters of technology purchases.
