We’ve been undergoing a long-term transition towards a more digital business and society for some time, and this has been greatly accelerated by the impact of COVID-19. From supplier engagement through employee working practices to digital Customer Experience, almost every aspect of business has changed. The impact of this has been profound - a common story from many IT and business leaders has been stories of IT plans ripped up, and years-worth of IT transformation delivered in just six months.
Some companies have coped with the fast pace of change much better than most. These Digital Leaders focus less on cost cutting, and more on agility and flexibility for their IT infrastructure, resulting in more effective IT that can change as fast as the market does. These Digital Leaders continued to invest heavily across a range of advanced infrastructure technology and capabilities – such as Digital Trust, real-time data, automation & orchestration, AIOps, DevOps, and hybrid multicloud – even through the impact of the pandemic.
One of the main things these Digital Leaders do differently to most is to embrace new ways to fund and operate their IT infrastructure. They are moving away from the annual budgets cycles and project-by-project allocations that are common today and that result in a disjointed and tactical approach to IT. Instead, they are leading the shift to where IT is funded and serviced on an ongoing basis that allows them to take a transformational and strategic approach to building and running IT.
Join us on the 29th of April for a discussion on how using advanced financial solutions such as leasing and consumption-based approaches can help accelerate your journey to flexible and agile IT infrastructure, where we will look at:
