Accelerating Edge-to-Cloud and Data Driven Digital Transformation

Digital transformation is a journey. Rather than being a one-off tick-box exercise, it’s an evolving process to continually strive for the most efficient IT infrastructure that offers a smooth and effective user experience for optimal output, setting your organisation ahead of the competition.

Data is everywhere. Spread through the data centre, at the edge and in the cloud, it is vital to harness this data to unlock insights and realise business value as well as optimise the use and cost of your IT infrastructure, all whilst ensuring it is reliable and secure. We’ve seen a shift towards using AI and machine learning in recent years, driven by a surge in data and offering a wealth of insights that can be used to optimise the IT environment. Many enterprises are also looking to containers to provide flexibility and reliability. Indeed, Gartner reports that, “By 2022, about 75% of organisations will have deployed containers”.

We see customers around the globe and MEA region in particular looking for more insights, advanced analytics, speed, application agility and streamlined operation. There is an accelerated adoption of containers and data-led transformation which bring a lot of value to organisations including, but not limited to, being more competitive, releasing unique offerings faster and making informed decisions.

The Covid-19 pandemic has only served to increase the momentum of digital transformation, however this transition has identified a number of challenges that stand in the way. Legacy applications, data sprawl and lengthy migration times all throw up barriers to a smooth move to public cloud, and research has shown that with the majority of data in colocations, data centres and at the edge, migration is a more complicated process for those monolithic applications that are not cloud native. Rearchitecting them is time consuming and expensive, however here at HPE, we strive for simplicity, and have developed a solution to overcome these problems.
