As businesses are driven to digital transformation by changing market forces and customer expectations, many are looking to new technologies, including new infrastructure environments, as enablers. As a result, we are seeing a near-universal appetite for hybrid outcomes as business functions are executed across multiple on-premises and external infrastructure environments in pursuit of agility, cost, performance and other business benefits. Hybrid IT has become a key strategic imperative for a large portion of enterprises, impacting their IT objectives and expectations, and likely leading to new engagements with service provides for help designing, building and operating hybrid environments.

Digital transformation is forcing businesses to rethink how collaboration and process occurs across their extended enterprise, blurring the definitions of “back office” and “front office.” It’s also making it increasingly important to get more value out of their content, while also addressing modern security and regulatory requirements.
Although legacy enterprise content management systems helped manage the most sensitive content, they were never designed to accommodate the new mobile, highly agile business processes of the digital age.
A new strategy is needed.
Digital transformation has changed virtually everything in the business world. Old ways of working are no longer enough to keep up with the rapid pace of innovation and markets are changing. Whether you’re a tech startup born in the digital world or a 100-year-old company establishing new processes, every business is rethinking the way it works internally and with partners across the extended enterprise. And as companies cope with the tectonic shifts of the digital age, they are transforming to become more digital, too.

Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.
Digital disruption, economic instability, political upheavals and skills shortages have all at some point in the past 24 months been blamed for business failure, or at the very least, lost profitability and earnings.
It’s perhaps not a huge surprise that a Gartner CEO survey on business priorities revealed that digital business is a top priority for next year. Survey respondents were asked whether they have a management initiative or transformation program to make their business more digital. The majority (62 percent) said they did. Of those organisations, 54 percent said that their digital business objective is transformational while 46 percent said the objective of the initiative is optimisation.*
So, for businesses it’s a case of learning to evolve and be agile, to use technology to help compete more efficiently and not fall victim to inertia. As businesses become increasingly dependent on the insights from data analytics and face-up to competition fuelled by the 24/7 society of in
La trasformazione digitale è un acceleratore di business che, fra le altre cose, sta portando ad un aumento della domanda per ottenere prestazioni migliori e una maggiore capacità di archiviazione. Tale domanda fa sì che le aziende debbano riesaminare la loro strategia di storage, poiché l’aumento della capacità storage non coincide con i sempre minori budget a disposizione del settore IT. Per poter sostenere lo sviluppo della propria attività commerciale e rimanere competitivi all’interno di un mercato digitale globale, ai CIO viene chiesto sempre più spesso di “fare di più con meno risorse” e, al contempo, di migliorare prestazioni e disponibilità.
Every day, more organizations are adopting “cloud-first” strategies, shifting core business processes to public cloud systems and services. And though security concerns have been a barrier to digital transformation and cloud adoption in the past , it’s clear from the latest market projections—which see worldwide spending on public cloud services and infrastructure reaching US$210 billion in 2019 (up 23.8% over 2018) - companies migrating to the cloud from traditional environments are now prioritizing the benefits of the public cloud over any potential security risks to their business by understanding this new cloud security model and making strategic adjustments.

The digitalization of business processes and the advent of mobile computing have given rise to the next generation of fraud. Cybercriminals have a variety of tools and techniques—as well as opportunities—to steal money and services. Furthermore, traditional fraud prevention tools often fail to stop this fraudulent activity.
Companies need a new approach to fraud prevention—one that stops fraud early and preserves the user experience. Companies with an online presence must have the ability to:
Detect and respond to fraudulent activity before incurring losses
Leverage human insight and machine learning to identify advanced fraud
Work with other fraud analysts to identify larger fraud trends and stop cybercriminals on a global scale
Block more fraud while reducing fraud prevention costs
This book explores how companies can leverage a next-generation fraud prevention solution to stop more fraud while reducing costs and providing a positive user experience for trusted customers.

Digital transformation is reshaping the business landscape faster now than at any other time in history. While it once took decades to disrupt a market, natively digital companies have disrupted their industries in just half a decade. Digitization is creating new winners and losers at an unprecedented rate. Organizations that adopt a digital strategy will leapfrog the competition, while those that do not will risk becoming irrelevant within five years.
One important step in becoming a digital enterprise is gaining agility—that is, having the ability to take advantage of market opportunities faster than the competition. Although achieving business agility has become a top goal for IT and business leaders, it cannot be realized if companies lack an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent an estimated $14 billion on technology in 2018 to make IT more agile, according to ZK Research.
