Think back just 5 years ago. In 2014… • The seminal DevOps book—Gene Kim’s The Phoenix Project—was one year old • Gartner predicted that 25% of Global 2000 enterprises would adopt DevOps to some extent by 20161 • "Continuous Testing” just started appearing in industry publications and conferences2 • Many of today’s popular test frameworks were brand new—or not yet released • The term “microservices” was just entering our lexicon • QC/UFT and ALM were still sold by HP (not even HPE yet) • Only 30% of enterprise software testing was performed fully “in house”3 • There was no GDPR restricting the use of production data for software testing • Packaged apps were typically updated on an annual or semi-annual basis and modern platforms like SAP S/4HANA and Salesforce Lightning hadn’t even been announced Times have changed—a lot.

Companies typically begin with a basic approach to sales tax: figure out the requirements of the state in which they’re headquartered, register with that state, and start collecting sales tax from customers in that state. That approach may work for a while, but as your business expands into new states (whether you have a physical presence there or not), the risk of non-compliance with sales tax becomes significant. Smart finance leaders know they need to have a sales tax compliance strategy before they start getting notices from state tax authorities.

IBM rarely, if ever publicly, talks about the future of IBM Z. When IBM's sales managers have a oneon-one client conversation (under NDA), they might inform the customer about the next processor, but the company rarely talks about the mid- to long-term future publicly. An obvious reason for this is not to disrupt sales, but at the same time, IBM believes that it is sometimes working on problems that the market might not know it has yet. IBM felt that it was doing a disservice to its current and future customers by not being more open, which is why Tarun Chopra, director, Product Management for IBM Systems, and Ross Mauri, general manager, IBM Z, agreed to talk to IDC about the future of IBM Z. In these conversations, IBM was not putting a date on any of the topics it was willing to discuss. But the company was willing to talk about where it is investing R&D dollars and skills.

Omnichannel is one of those words everyone uses, but few use correctly. It’s not another word for multichannel. It’s a different state of existence. In our experience, multichannel is the ability to interact with customers across many different channels, but not necessarily in a cohesive fashion. As new channels become available, they are “bolted on” to existing customer experience infrastructure such as CRM or customer support systems. Too frequently, the management of these channels becomes siloed (web versus in-store sales, for example). The effect of this from the customer experience standpoint can be disjointed and jarring. For example, the resolution of an issue following a customer conversation with an associate in the contact center may not be reflected when the customer goes online or into a store. Yet the ability to offer multichannel service experience is table stakes for today’s business. If you’re not available in the channels where customers want you to be, you cease to b
