As the shift into a digital economy continues to accelerate, companies must out-innovate, outthink, and outpace their competition. Businesses must embrace change and transform to become the disruptors in their industries rather than wait to be disrupted by their competitors.
In the face of this pressure to evolve, organizations need to transform IT to reduce both the capital and operational costs of legacy IT. They must offload repeatable and time-intensive manual tasks like backup, disaster recovery, and service deployment to software and policy-driven automation.
Transforming IT to meet the emerging requirements of a rapidly advancing digital economy is a priority for most companies today. Market economies and quickly evolving digital interactions are driving new and increasing demands on IT infrastructure for organizations of all kinds – from small businesses to enterprises to public institutions. IT requirements to support a variety of digital use paradigms (personal devices, IoT, VMs, VDI) are changing quickly, and organizations need to respond in order to be competitive in this evolving digital world.
The latest generation of PowerEdge servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors can deliver differentiated business agility over older-generation infrastructure. IDC asserted that updating servers can help businesses deploy applications up to 22 percent faster and improve application performance up to 29 percent over outdated infrastructure.

Digital technology is so intrinsic to our personal lives that we barely think
about the fitness trackers and smartphones that are as much a part of
us as the clothing we wear. For organizations, the shift to digital is more
disruptive and the stakes far higher. Digital transformation has been high
on the executive agenda for a few years and, for many, harnessing data
has become a significant force for value and revenue creation.
Agility has emerged as an organizational superpower as businesses
grapple with change and uncertainty in their own customer bases and in
the global political and economic landscape. IT has been thrust into the
spotlight as the unwitting hero of the story – tasked with delivering on
the digital vision, implementing all manner of applications and building
firm infrastructure foundations to support the latest digital initiatives.
In an increasingly on-demand world, it is this final point that often gets
overlooked in the rush for the next shiny new technologies. E
VMware surveyed approximately 200 senior IT leaders at enterprise, commercial, and SMB organizations worldwide to shed light on the evolving role of IT. In the face of increased pressures, IT oganizations are needing to accelerate development and delivery of applications that power faster time-to-market for the business.
In this paper, we chart the progress of CIOs, CTOs and other IT leaders and discuss the top challenges they face in building more nimble, responsive organizations to support their business objectives. We also show how data centre modernization can help organizations deliver the agility required to meet ever-increasing demands for faster innovation through a flexible, service-oriented IT model that employs both private and public clouds.

Maintaining a competitive edge today means building a Digital Enterprise capable of taking full advantage of social, mobile, web, cloud, “things,” (sensors and devices), and analytics technologies. Among the terms used to describe this business transition is “the API Economy,” an economy in which APIs are no longer just an IT concern, but the underpinnings of new revenue streams and new business models that are disrupting entire industries.

With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.
Email is the primary communication system and file transport mechanism used in organizations of all sizes. Email systems generate enormous amounts of content that must be preserved for a variety of reasons, including:

But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.

"In today’s Idea Economy, businesses need to turn ideas into services faster. Every new business and established enterprise is
at risk of missing a
market opportunity and being disrupted by a new idea or business model. It has never been easier, or more cru
cial, to turn ideas into new
products, services, or applications
—and quickly drive them to market. But IT needs an infrastructure that enables them to partner with the
business to speed the delivery of services."
Hyperconvergence is a hot topic right now. And for good reason. Organisations have longed for a way to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to deploy new business-facing IT services. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) delivers the speed, simplicity and agility needed in today’s digital economy. But not all HCI solutions are created equal. And HCI is not the answer for every application or workload. In the following, we explore what makes HCI different from traditional IT infrastructure and how your business can benefit from the new capabilities it brings.
Digital transformation (DX) is a must for midsize firms (those with 100 to 999 employees) to thrive in the digital economy. DX enables firms to increase competitive advantage through initiatives such as automating business processes, creating greater operational efficiencies, building deeper customer relationships, and creating new revenue streams based on technology-enabled products and services. DX is a journey, and it starts with firms embracing an IT-centric vision that guides a data-driven, analytics-first strategy. The outcome of DX initiatives depends on the ability of a firm to efficiently leverage people (talent), process, platforms, and governance to meet the firm’s business objectives.

In the idea economy, time-to-value is the #1 priority. But in a technology-driven world, it takes more than good ideas to be successful. Success depends on how quickly an enterprise can turn ideas into value, and that depends on how fast IT can roll out new services.
IT is undergoing a significant transformation as businesses look to streamline costs and roll out a new class of cloud-based applications driven by a changing digital economy. The IT infrastructure as we know it today is not well equipped to improve on the cost structure for traditional workloads nor handle the velocity demands of a new generation of workloads where IT is a focal point for competitive differentiation. As one approach to address these changing demands of IT, vendors are bringing to market new solutions under a new category called “composable infrastructure”.
