IT Transformation made (almost) magical with HPE and SAP

By Cameron Foley

There’s no denying the need for IT transformation. It’s just not possible to thrive in the idea economy without a next-generation digital platform that helps you become more flexible, agile, efficient, and focused – all at the same time.

And the move toward digital transformation is well under way at many organizations. According to a new study by IDG Research Services, of the 100 IT and business professionals surveyed in May 2016, more than one-third (37 percent) say they have launched enterprise-wide digital transformation initiatives.


But making this transformation takes more than my friend Natalia’s magic wand. She got a magic kit for her birthday one year and kept trying to transform her cat, Theophilus, into a bunny with the help of the kit’s black top hat. Every time she put the cat in and waved the magic wand, the cat came back out again. No transformation. No bunny. She’d usually try the trick three of four times without success, and then burst into tears and run off to hide – totally mortified - for the rest of the day,

I’ve talked with companies who can relate to Natalia in terms of unsuccessful transformations. And I’ve encouraged them to take a look at what Hewlett Packard Enterprise and SAP have to offer. No wand. No hat. (No tears, either). Just simplified, innovative joint solutions targeted at transforming to respond to real-world challenges.
