Whatever Enterprise Digital Transformation may mean to you and your organization, most people will agree that the most critical success factor in Digital Transformation is being able to extract value from your Enterprise Data. 

You may have seen this week that Salesforce acquired Mulesoft for $6.5 Billion. I always like to think about “what does this mean to me?”.
To answer that we arranged a conference call with Richard Ganley, SVP of Digital Transformation with Informatica this morning. He has been with Informatica for more than 13 years and seen this industry evolve and shift each and every year.

When you choose Enterprise Information Technology for your career you virtually guarantee two constants in your work life:

1. There will be a continuous inflow of new ideas and new technologies that will be important and disruptive.
2. You will be so busy with your job that finding the time to review, understand and assimilate those new ideas and technologies will be very difficult.

“Enterprises are not going to be able to survive in the future if they do not get good at technology.”

This insight was offered by Box CEO Aaron Levie during his lecture for the “How to Start a Startup” course at Stanford University.
