Dell EMC says it wants companies to adopt IT transformation technique to achieve bottom-line benefits that would drive business differentiation, innovation, and growth.
It said today’s business landscape is rife with disruption, much of it driven by organisations using technology in new or innovative ways and that in order to survive and thrive in today’s digital world, businesses are implementing new technologies, processes, and skill set to best address changing customer needs.
Jeff Clarke, the vice chairman, products, and operations, Dell Technologies, made the call in a statement on Wednesday in Lagos.
Clarke said the call came as a result of new research conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) into the benefits of IT transformation.
He said a fundamental first step to this change is transforming IT to help organisations bring products to market faster, remain competitive and drive innovation as data was the new competitive edge, yet it was becoming highly distributed across the edge of core data center and cloud.
Clarke said the organisations realised they had to move quickly to turn that data into business intelligence, requiring an end-to-end IT infrastructure that could manage, analyse, store and protect data everywhere it lived.
“We are in the business of better business outcomes, giving our customers the ability, make that end-to-end strategy a reality, driving disruptive innovation without the fear of being disrupted themselves,” he said.
He said ESG employed a research-based, data-driven maturity model to identify different stages of IT transformation progress and determine the degree to which global organisations had achieved those different stages and this was based on their responses to questions about their organisations’ adoption of modernised data center technologies, automated IT processes and transformed organisational dynamics.
