Simplified and Accelerated Cloud Native MarTech (IDC)
The most efficient, flexible, and future-proofed marketing systems are cloud native. This architecture provides significant economic and operational advantages over on-premise or conventional SaaS solutions. However, many early adopters of marketing solutions deployed on-premise and SaaS solutions because they were considered best of breed at the time, and cloud-native solutions and IT organizations hadn't matured to the point of mission-critical readiness. Companies that adopted on-premise or SaaS solutions now find themselves lagging in their ability to quickly upgrade and enhance their systems and adapt to the new demands of a highly personalized, digital-first, omnichannel world. Today, your MarTech infrastructure is your brand, and if you compete against companies with systems that provide greater resiliency, adaptability, and efficiency, you are at an increasingly significant disadvantage.  When cloud first emerged, it was a difficult proposition to "lift and shift" conventional applications environments. It could take years of planning, testing, and parallel operations to make the change. However, legacy applications that have been "lifted and shifted" lack the agility, performance, and ease of use marketers need, while hosted SaaS applications lack customizability and control. For example, when Netflix first moved to the cloud it took approximately eight years. Today, that time has been reduced to a matter of days and weeks due to the evolution of cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS), the migration processes and tooling, and the skills needed to operate in the cloud. Taking this a step further, HCL Unica has accelerated this cycle with its cloud-native foundation that is all about fast and flexible deployments. With HCL's Solution Factory (SoFy), new cloud-native deployments of HCL solutions, including Unica, can be provisioned in a matter of minutes and deployed on premises, or via public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud. If the full set of skilled resources is lacking, HCL...

Is Cloud Native the Answer to Being Customer-Centric?
Factors such as rising digitalization and increased spending capabilities have dramatically changed the meaning of customer experience. Product features and prices are no longer the primary consideration in the digital age, as customer experience is becoming the primary differentiating factor. Customers expect brand owners to provide a personalized experience across touchpoints and interaction channels, ensuring a seamless digital commerce experience. According to multiple studies conducted by Quadrant, customers are ready to pay a premium price for better and personalized services. The retailers and brand owners focusing on delivering exceptional and personalized customer experiences are increasingly becoming more profitable and are winning over the competition. A customer-centric approach helps organizations drive improvements in customer loyalty, brand image, messaging consistency, and revenue growth. The majority of retailers have transformed their digital commerce and CX-specific technology landscape by adopting cloud-based applications and services. However, traditionally architected cloud-based applications lack the necessary agility, speed, and performance required to adapt to the growing business complexities, demanding customers, and ever-increasing competition. In a fast-paced digital-savvy economy, retailers are required to transform their digital commerce operations to drive a culture of innovation and gain the necessary business agility to ensure long-term and sustainable success. Therefore, cloud-native architecture is increasingly becoming the current industry norm, enabling organizations to future-proof their technology investment and drive a culture of continuous improvements. Cloud-native is an approach to designing and building applications based on microservices-based architecture running on containers and dynamic orchestration platforms. Unlike traditional monolithic architecture, cloud-native applications are automatically optimized for optimum performance across any cloud environment with container infrastructure, including private, public, on-premises, hybrid clouds, or edge locations. The cloud-native approach follows agile development and DevOps principles, supporting continuous integrations and continuous delivery (CI/CD) along with continuous deployment. The applications are designed, developed, and delivered collaboratively by development, IT...

Software Delivery has just Grown Up
When’s the last time you or your operations team were able to deploy an entire, fully functional, enterprise-grade suite of applications for your organization to tryout within one day?* * Sometimes actually less than an hour. AND you need zero technical knowledge, cost or commitment, but instead you can just kick back with a glass of whatever and watch your entire Kubernetes cluster spin up in front of your eyes within hours, AND there’s a cloud native container orchestration app that you can visually monitor the health of all your nodes with Grafana charts, and its completely free for any customer of any product in said suite? Yeah, me neither! Not until I had the honor to spend the last year and a half working with the HCL Solutions Factory team here at HCL Software. What this team has done for our solution delivery capability is almost too difficult to draw a comparison to. It is truly a paradigm shift for cloud native software delivery. In this article, I will introduce you to what we have been cooking up for the last five years and how it will radically improve your competitive footing. Our incredibly talented team of modernization experts have gone all-in on cloud native tech to bring the world SoFy, the HCL Solutions Factory. Think of SoFy as the Netflix of enterprise software. First and foremost, it is an incredibly friendly catalog of all the HCL Software titles – pre-containerized and ready to deploy to public cloud sandboxes in literal minutes. What once took weeks with expensive experts, can now be done by the most non-technical users on their phone while sitting in Starbucks. It's seriously that easy. If that was all SoFy was, it would still be a game-changer, but we didn't stop there! The SoFy team...
