The topic of digital transformation is dominating many companies’ strategic planning right now, not just within IT but also at the business level. To stay relevant and compete in this transformative era, companies need to accelerate how they leverage new developments in the collection and analysis of data to change the way they run operations, engage with customers, and alter business outcomes to improve either revenue or profits. They also need to institutionalize this ability by taking advantage of new approaches to consumption of compute capacity that match up with these workload profiles. For all organizations, success or failure in digital transformation ties directly to the effectiveness of their IT service delivery environments.
