By now it’s no surprise that most every business must become a digital business – a sentiment reflected in the Digital Transformation Index we released last year. It’s long been my view that in leading businesses, IT will move from supporting the business to becoming the business – which means there is no digital transformation without an underlying IT Transformation. This begs the question: where do IT shops around the world stand in making progress on this front?

Our Recipe For Success: Do More With Less!

The digital era is upon us. IT leaders are confronted by soaring expectations for digital transformations. The ability to innovate faster through agile, flexible resources and satisfy business demands is expected. Simultaneously, IT must maintain a reliable environment to keep core business processes rolling smoothly. Although microservices and DevOps are hot topics today, traditional IT applications and systems of record are equally as important to maintain.

How can companies transform IT to provide the speed and flexibility necessary for rapid development while keeping costs and risks low? Staff must optimize existing infrastructure and processes to reduce costs and accelerate IT service delivery without sacrificing reliability. IT transformations aren’t executed overnight. Like learning how to ride a bike, you start with training wheels and as you become more experienced keeping your balance becomes subconscious allowing you to focus on more advanced actions. IT leaders must design a plan to optimize traditional, plan-driven functions. Predictable, well understood processes should be automated to ensure consistencies so time, dollars and staff can be reallocated into next-generation operations. Time consuming, error-prone, manual tasks will be eliminated, ultimately speeding time to market and driving down costs by leveraging automation and application blueprints that have been proven to work and can be life cycled without constant human touch.

Now what about the aspect of exploration? Along with the rewards reaped from rapid innovation and iterative, outcome-focused developments come uncertainties and risks. Cloud-native application development is uncharted territory for most Enterprises and thus many IT organizations shy away from investing aggressively in new trends. To gain experience in the cloud-native realm, you start small and rapidly scale as demand for new applications grows and a solidified strategy evolves.

Like learning to ride a bike, start with some guidance and eventually you can take off the training wheels and pedal fast. EMC and Pivotal are prepared to help you gain momentum with your DevOps strategy. Organizations that are just beginning to experiment with cloud native applications now have a quick, low risk way to get started.

The struggle to pertain to two competing pressures is not a simple battle. Designing, integrating and testing a platform has taken some companies years and millions of dollars. Studies have proven investing in a fully engineered platform could have you running 92% faster and saving up to 67%.

Today, we’re announcing the latest releases of our hybrid cloud platforms:

EMC engineers have completed the necessary engineering work to instill users with the confidence that the solution will run reliably with one contact support. The frequent advancements extend IT’s ability to update legacy application infrastructure to meet the demands of the digital world.

Our hybrid clouds platforms help to close the gap between developers’ goals and IT operations by providing control, reporting and chargeback features that are needed to create an efficient strategy. Adjustments can be made in just minutes breaking down the IT infrastructure silos that now exist enabling IT to rapidly adapt to changing business needs.

So, if you’re ready to start your transformation, we’re ready to ensure a smooth ride.
