As people, business, and “things” increasingly interconnect in the digital economy, existing business models are being radically disrupted.

Digital transformation changes the way a company creates value, interacts with customers and business partners, and competes.

Digital business transformation has shifted from “nice to have” to “must have”. But challenges abound: From how to digitize IT and digitally

interact with customers to how to integrate new digital services with existing products and solutions. Digital business is built on new
computing infrastructure – the four pillars of mobile, cloud, social, and Big Data analytics – accelerated by the Internet of Things (IoT)
and advances in machine learning. These disruptive technologies are giving companies the ability to radically change business models and
create new products and services.

This is where Mitchell & Associates business and digital transformation consulting services comes in. We will assist you in creating and executing
a successful digital business strategy. Our consulting team can help you develop a digital transformation road map, implement the right digital
applications and architecture for your business, ensure interoperability, and more. Get support at any stage of your digital transformation – whether
you’re just getting started or have existing challenges to overcome.

We will close the gap between digital strategy and execution with our business transformation services. We can help align your people, processes,
and technology to your corporate goals using industry-specific best practices and expertise. Take advantage of proven innovation management methodology
and services, quickly deploy the latest digital business technologies, and keep your company on the very cutting edge.

What is cloud computing? Simply put, cloud computing makes it possible for users to access data, applications, and services over the Internet.
The cloud eliminates the need for costly hardware, such as hard drives and servers – and gives users the ability to work from anywhere.
Over 90% of businesses are already using cloud technology in a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment. The major benefits of cloud include:

  • Elasticity: Scale up or down quickly to meet computing demand
  • Affordability: Only pay for what you use, and minimize hardware and IT costs
  • Availability: Get 24/7/365 cloud system access from anywhere, on any device
  • Simplicity: Free IT from managing servers and updating software

Cloud computing is divided into three broad service categories: software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS).

SaaS – software-as-a-service – is a way of delivering applications over the Internet. Customers can access SaaS applications right from a Web browser, which means
there is no hardware or software to buy, install, maintain, or update. The SaaS provider takes care of everything – and the customer always has the latest version
of the application.

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provides a cloud platform and tools to help developers build and deploy cloud applications. Users access PaaS from a Web browser, so
there is no need to purchase and maintain the underlying hardware and software. With PaaS, developers can pick and choose the features they want on a subscription basis.

Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) lets companies “rent” computing resources such as servers, networks, storage, and operating systems on a pay-per-use basis. IaaS
providers host the infrastructure and handle tasks like system maintenance and backups – so customers don’t have to buy hardware or employ in-house experts to manage it.


Public, private, or hybrid cloud?
There are three types of cloud deployment models: public, private, and hybrid – and find out which one makes the most sense for your business.

Public Cloud
With a public cloud, services are delivered to customers over a network that’s open for public usage. Public clouds offer efficiency and affordability, and are often
multi-tenant – meaning the provider runs your service in a shared environment.

Private Cloud
With a private cloud, services are maintained on a private network protected by a firewall. You can build a private cloud within your own data center – or subscribe
to one hosted by a vendor. Private clouds offer the most security and control.

Hybrid Cloud
A hybrid cloud includes both cloud and on-premise solutions – often from multiple providers. Hybrid clouds offer variety, so you can pick and choose which aspects of
your business are better off in a public or private cloud versus on premise.

Cloud integration scenarios:
As companies digitize the enterprise, leveraging the best solutions from cloud with your Oracle JD Edwards solutions helps establish your platform for innovation and business process automation. With sophisticated integration options and built-in integration from JD Edwards, you can connect your core suite with other Oracle and third-party cloud solutions.
