Some developments challenge our accepted notions of what things are and how they’re created.  Uber and Airbnb, for instance, caused us to rethink what transportation and lodging mean in the new sharing economy.  Then there’s Amazon, one of the granddaddies of disruptors.

“Data is currency” is the rule of thumb in business. As with money, business data must be accessible, accurate, and usable across disparate contexts if an organization is to realize greater ROI while keeping costs under control. CIOs understand that the need to manage data—its location, composition, and utility—is as important as managing a balance sheet. For many companies, the solution is SQL Server, the industry gold standard for database management.
But what about the many tech startups and cloud enterprises running open-source platforms? These organizations face challenges with reliably integrating, categorizing, and accessing all types of business data in an often-heterogeneous world of platforms, apps, and devices.
The good news is SQL Server 2017 runs on Linux. Two Linux-based organizations, Convergent Computing and dv01,…

For businesses in times of revolution, it’s not enough to make incremental improvements. You have to disrupt and regenerate. Think of Blockbuster Video increasing its in-store inventory of DVDs while competitor Netflix invested in streaming options to watch from home. One was an improvement, the other was a disruption. Netflix changed their whole business model and they are tremendously successful a decade later, while Blockbuster shuttered operations long ago.
Netflix disrupted the video industry. Here are some other disruptors:

In last blog (Introduction to Swagger – Specification for Describing RESTful APIs), we got to know the history behind creation of the OpenAPI specification.
In this article, we will do following:

  • Explore Swagger’s enormous power to speed up your web application development using its code generator (https://github.com/swagger-api/swagger-codegen).
  • Generate Code for a REST application using our own OpenAPI Specification file and swagger-codegen.

There are two ways for developing using Swagger:

  1. API-first approach (Top down approach):

For this, you need to design your REST APIs first, and design model objects that you are going to use for those REST APIs. Then you write down these specifications in form of OpenAPI, and Swagger will…

On the last night of SAPPHIRE (SAP’s annual user conference) this year, a few colleagues and I were celebrating over dinner discussing the months of intense work leading up to the success of the event. The conversation quickly turned to identifying ways to become more productive without killing ourselves. What can we do to become more productive given we have an endless stream of emails around the clock, 50%+ of the day spent in meetings (some productive, some not, because a few of us tend to enjoy hearing ourselves talk), managing through the already 150% overcommitted activities? What if we had an extra 5 minutes, here and there? How could we use that time? How would most people use that time? With that question in mind, I turned to Google for fun just to see what turns up. Here are some suggestions I found to help one become more productive at work:

  • Respond to an email (or 5)
  • Get a cup of coffee
  • Go for a quick walk

Rethinking and fine-tuning business processes are part of an HR leader’s role. When investing in software-as-a-service (SaaS) HR solutions, adopting best practices and standardizing processes are critical to the success of these projects. However, the businesses that cannot get past a “we are different” mentality are the best candidates for struggling with change or experiencing adoption risk in the future.
Embracing and driving a streamlined approach based on best practices are not always easy to achieve. They both involve change management from the highest levels and a deep commitment to evaluate and streamline the decisions that impact people, processes, and technology. SaaS deployments…

Prologue
EA is a topic that is highly in debate and there are many frameworks like TOGAF, Zachman that help in defining the enterprise. This article takes reference of TOGAF for the discussion. While practicing TOGAF, it’s always implied that TOGAF is a suggestive approach and NOT a prescriptive approach.
Xoriant has recently forayed into TOGAF with the help of newly formed TOGAF Certified Architects and is committed to provide solutions to the clients on the proven success stories.

This is where a business canvas is provisioned and plans are made to evaluate the opportunity and provide information on that. Considering entire lifecycle of a business opportunity, it’s very important to put the right starting step so that Service Provider does not incur losses. This can…
