Prepare for the Digitization of Everything
Businesses are facing immense pressure to identify new revenue opportunities, innovate solutions, and be more agile, both operationally and in the market. Now with access to more data and apps than ever before, enterprises are looking to harness and apply that data in new ways to leap ahead.
Additionally, a growing distributed workforce and the transition to a hybrid work environment present their own set of challenges. This transition demands stable, secure, and powerful technology which supports employees and protects the company and its data.
This combination has created an insatiable demand for more compute and the need for modern, relevant, and powerful infrastructure to meet this resource challenge. Yesterday’s technical foundation must evolve to deliver the new business models, use cases, and applications needed for next-gen business.
Digital transformation pushes the boundaries of what is needed from a technology foundation—intelligence, agility, performance, security, and resilience. Industry 4.0 is transforming business operations, converging IT and OT systems into shared intelligent compute platforms that eliminate data silos and provide access to deeper insights as well as greater flexibility and control.
More intelligence—enabled by edge compute, artificial intelligence, and workload convergence—is creating operational efficiencies, revealing business advantages, and driving new levels of customer engagement.
Deploying a modern, agile IT infrastructure designed for speed and scalability to handle the increasing volume and complexity of data across any environment is a must for organizations. This investment allows businesses to take advantage of fast-moving, cost-effective opportunities for digital business transformation.
… what IDC calls the future enterprise will be one marked by a cohesive, business-focused architecture consisting of a hybrid, location-independent infrastructure, with workloads existing on a variety of platforms on-premises and off-premises, managed and orchestrated by automated tools and supported by strategic partners that understand and align to modern paradigms and practices.1

Frequently Asked Questions
Digital transformation is a process of improvement for streamlined business outcomes as well as customer, staff, and user experience. Effective, efficient, and secure data underlies every digital transformation initiative; this is why technology infrastructure and innovation play such a critical role in the process.
The primary driver of digital transformation is the awareness that every touchpoint with your company delivers an experience that either attracts or repels positive attention from your audiences, including customers, employees, and business partners. The price of not proactively initiating digital transformation is either potential marketplace obsolescence or talent drain. By understanding that brand experience rests on seamless processes and integrated systems as a competitive edge, businesses can see that digital transformation becomes a priority and an essential investment.
Nearly every company in any industry today has a digital element to at least its core operational functions. Accordingly, digital transformation is relevant to nearly every company regardless of vertical market, geographic location, size, degree of maturity, or leadership position in their industry. However, digital transformation is not a one-size-fits-all formula, given that each company has unique standards, requirements, and resources.
A good starting point for digital transformation is the degree of satisfaction customers have as a result of their experience with your company. Customers expect companies to be digitally present 24/7/365 for service requests, downloads, transactions, and more. Begin by assessing whether sales functions are digitally enabled, if customer touchpoints are personalized, and/or if customer requests are met immediately. If not, look for the gaps or limitations in your value delivery process, then evaluate your technology infrastructure and capabilities for operational efficiency in meeting customer expectations.
