Digital Transformation: It’s making every business initiative an IT project
The rise of the digital economy is driving rapid and fundamental changes in businesses and their operating models. In this new era, business success will increasingly revolve around a company’s mastery of digital technologies—from consumer applications to the Internet of Things and beyond.
At the heart of this transformation is digitalization, which Gartner defines as “the use of digital technologies to change a business model and provide new revenue and value-producing opportunities; it is the process of moving to a digital business.”
The big don’t eat the small — the fast eat the slow.
In this new era, speed and agility are keys to the success of an enterprise—and this shift has major implications for IT organizations. IDC predicts that by 2019, 40 percent of IT projects will create new digital services and revenue streams that monetize data.
What Is a Modernized Data Center?

…all within existing budgets or at lower cost
VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center.
NSX enables the creation of entire networks in software and embeds them in the hypervisor layer, abstracted from the underlying physical hardware. All network components can be provisioned in minutes, without the need to modify the application.
