The reasons to move towards digital transformation are simple. With a more distributed and dynamic infrastructure, creating a flexible and scalable IT environment, as money make more than expenses, is mandatory. If the IT department and environment is not performing up to expectations, your whole business suffers. If your systems are faster, more flexible and more affordable than your competitor’s, your market share will increase as well as your business. Because of this reason, the IT infrastructure is turning more into a cost center that allows a company to make money easier and faster.
All industries will be affected by the digital transformation, from the tech to the farming and government industries. For example, using precision farming, smart irrigation and smart farm management, will allow tech solutions to streamline processes, minimize waste, maximize output and walk the path to sustainability satisfying customers’ needs. The energy industry requires smart grids and distribution to prepare for upcoming demands. Government depends on digital technology to bring government closer to people and the health and education industries require digital solutions to reach more of the world’s population more efficiently and cheaper cost. You do not have to be in a technological industry to be innovative and keep up with times and as Einstein said, you cannot expect to get different outcomes while repeating the same actions.
Hybrid is a positive word. In the automotive industry means save fuel and protect the environment and in design generates more interesting architectures. Hybrid IT integrate, customize and bridge traditional and innovative system to address business system management right, maintain service availability and comply with regulations but as the enterprise complexity increase, so do IT. Every enterprise requires powerful and convenient platform services, smarter resource sharing and benefits from the cloud model. Understand the right IT mix for your company is crucial for this transformation.
Business and IT functions must work together in order to identify the best use of cloud and traditional services based on digital strategy. Hybrid IT allows enterprises to achieve their goals by mixing and matching a broad mix of infrastructure components and choose the best combination of speed, affordability and security. In this environment all applications and pieces of infrastructure work cooperatively combining the delivery of enterprise applications, data and services to keep the business running and accelerate innovation. With the convergence of multiple technologies and service-delivery models, managing a hybrid IT model has become immensely complex. Doing it right requires detailed planning, assessment and control. Flexible, software-defined, scalable and composable IT environment to operate across datacenter, cloud and network are key. With software-enabled automation and simplified hybrid cloud management to streamline and speed operations, companies can focus on new projects that deliver a competitive advantage and maximize the value of each technology component. In a hybrid world, IT stops being a provider of a single service and instead brokers a variety of options for business.
