Innovating Agile Digital Transformation
In the era of rapid digital transformation, xFusion Technologies’ Center of Agile Digital Transformation is engaged in continuous research to innovate Agile Digital Transformation. Planning, Building, and Operating Digital Services incrementally and iteratively comes with its own challenges such as maintaining Business Continuity during the transformation, managing different priorities for the Partners and Suppliers for modernization, ensuring alignment of architecture, technology and standards across multiple digital services team, and establishing a delivery pipeline for continuous integration and delivery of the Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Agile development of Digital Services in bite size pieces often involves multiple vendors to build the digital services in parallel. This is similar to inviting multiple cooks to the kitchen – each with their own recipes and toolset. They may cook their own items to their own taste but it may not be served all together – an unmanageable state of misaligned roadmap, technology, and architecture.
It is critical to plan and establish the foundation and the roadmap for agile and iterative digital transformation where the business, technology, implementation, and operations teams are orchestrated with the necessary process, tools, technologies, best practices and standards to operate in synchronization with each other in an integrated fashion. Agile transformation requires integration of operations to the development in order to continuously integrate and deliver the incremental products to production and monitor them in operations.
xFusion understands the key challenges to be addressed in each phases of the Digital Services’ lifecycle – Plan, Build, and Run for successful Agile and Iterative Digital Transformation.

xCELLENCE®: Cloud-based and in-premise solution for Enterprise Asset Lifecycle Management and Governance. Selected as Top 20 Most Promising Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Solution for2017 by CIO Review Magazine.xCellence®, is a multi-tenant cloud and on-premise Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution that can virtually manage and govern the end-to-end lifecycle of any enterprise asset including applications, APIs, platforms, software, databases, servers, and storage. The platform allows sophisticated design-time governance by exploring the existing enterprise assets and their reusability for current and future requirements. It also manages dependencies between enterprise assets for effective change impact analysis.
xCellence delivers an enterprise asset repository providing a 360-degree view of the assets and their dependencies, and allows management of end-to-end life cycles of each enterprise asset through any medium such as web browsers, mobile phones, and tablets. xCellence takes an engineered approach for enterprise asset governance that is collaborative, easy, intuitive, and innovative. Moreover, the platform allows the asset and associated metadata definition, and asset lifecycle definition through configuration with zero coding effort. The platform supports asset tagging and efficient objective-based searches, asset lifecycle management, and asset dependency analysis visually. In addition to its sophisticated security and audit-control capabilities, the platform’s social collaboration capability adds an efficient mechanism for design-time governance of the enterprise assets.
The widespread deployment of cloud computing in the Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) landscape is helping enterprises get closer to optimum productivity—by offering a unique level of flexibility and manageability. Talking about today’s EAM landscape, Sanjib Nayak, Founder and CEO, xFusion Technologies says, “Visibility and the ability to access enterprise assets by anyone, anytime, anywhere and through any device are critical parameters for EAM success”. EAM encounters a multitude of issues –lack of visibility in enterprise assets (like hardware and software applications), inefficiency in asset documentation, asset dependencies, asset lifecycle management, and the governance process.
