In a marketplace characterised by extreme change and uncertainty, business agility is becoming essential to enable companies to respond rapidly, retain momentum and succeed.
Today’s business leaders realise the importance of digital transformation to future-proof their organisations and succeed in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Digital technology can help businesses drive performance, improve customer experience and lead their industries.
COVID-19 has been a massively disruptive force—it has caused businesses to close, forced people to work from home, accelerated the rate of technological adoption and pressed organisations to reinvent themselves overnight to remain sustainable and survive.
According to Morgan Stanley, we are entering into a new era where data is driving transformation—and this isn’t data generated in the cloud or a data centre. Billions of IoT (Internet of Things) devices are becoming connected and producing a staggering amount of data at the edge.
COVID-19 has created massive uncertainty and amplified the need for businesses to advance their digital transformation efforts and innovate to survive. According to Deloitte, many organisations began innovating rapidly immediately after the World Health Organisation declared the global pandemic in 2020.
IDC predicts that the amount of data created over the next three years will surpass the data created over the past 30 years, and this trend is set to continue at an exponential rate. Data is a strategic business asset, and most business leaders realise the importance of having an agile, intelligent and resilient high-end storage infrastructure to protect and manage their data.
HPE GreenLake is a pay-per-use consumption-based model that delivers hardware, software, and expertise on-premises or in the cloud. Businesses pay for only what they use instead of investing in the infrastructure and skills to provide it themselves. HPE GreenLake enables businesses to combine the simplicity, flexibility and pay-per-use economics of the cloud with the security and control on-premises infrastructure offers.
Digital transformation and dynamic business models are fast becoming the key to success for many businesses. Data is an invaluable asset that underpins modern digital transformation strategies—data-driven insights can help organisations solve business challenges, make better decisions, and transform day-to-day operations, enabling them to grow their revenue and gain a competitive advantage.
There will always be market and technology disruptions impacting businesses across all sectors. An organisation’s ability to rapidly shift its business model through digital transformation to adapt to change can mean the difference between success and failure.
For years, Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) has been the next big thing in data centres. Promising to get rid of the inefficient, low performance, and extremely expensive legacy SAN infrastructure most companies employ, HCI leverages the CPU and memory resources within a cluster of servers to turn it into a collective storage pool that a business can access, replacing traditional infrastructure with an efficient, high performance, pay as you grow storage and virtualisation set-up.
