The existential question: what areas of building products distribution are ripe for reimagination, safeguarding against ambiguous market conditions now and in the future?

Hyperconvergence is a hot topic right now. And for good reason. Organisations have longed for a way to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to deploy new business-facing IT services. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) delivers the speed, simplicity and agility needed in today’s digital economy. But not all HCI solutions are created equal. And HCI is not the answer for every application or workload. In the following, we explore what makes HCI different from traditional IT infrastructure and how your business can benefit from the new capabilities it brings.
Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies
have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy
anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced
economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.
Digital transformation (DX) is a must for midsize firms (those with 100 to 999 employees) to thrive in the digital economy. DX enables firms to increase competitive advantage through initiatives such as automating business processes, creating greater operational efficiencies, building deeper customer relationships, and creating new revenue streams based on technology-enabled products and services. DX is a journey, and it starts with firms embracing an IT-centric vision that guides a data-driven, analytics-first strategy. The outcome of DX initiatives depends on the ability of a firm to efficiently leverage people (talent), process, platforms, and governance to meet the firm’s business objectives.
IT is undergoing a significant transformation as businesses look to streamline costs and roll out a new class of cloud-based applications driven by a changing digital economy. The IT infrastructure as we know it today is not well equipped to improve on the cost structure for traditional workloads nor handle the velocity demands of a new generation of workloads where IT is a focal point for competitive differentiation. As one approach to address these changing demands of IT, vendors are bringing to market new solutions under a new category called “composable infrastructure”.
With endless media, services and products available in just a few taps on a smartphone, people are becoming accustomed to a new level of instant access. Whether it’s a ride to a party, a payment sent to a friend or streaming a movie, speed is everything. Thanks to technology, Gen Y has come of age in the on-demand economy.
Technology enables business transformation To thrive in today’s idea economy, small and midsize companies like yours are using technology to transform their business. Like your peers, you know that mobile applications, cloud-based solutions, and advanced analytics can help you increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow your business. Older servers, storage, and networking products weren’t built to handle the exploding amount of data that is being shared today. In order to take advantage of these modern applications, many companies have found that they need to close the gap between what their business demands and what their IT systems can deliver.
For organizations to succeed with the onslaught of devices, sensors and tools that innovation garners, data must no longer be treated as a byproduct but instead as an asset. And data-driven innovation must start at the top. That's what Michael Schrage, Fellow at MIT Sloan School's Initiative on the Digital Economy, said during the Harvard Business Review webinar, Leadership and Big Data Innovation. Find out why data experimentation, governance and culture are part of the next leadership challenge for organizations.
Traditional business models are getting shattered by subscriptions. No one can doubt the new services economy is flourishing. The cloud, mobile, digital, connected devices, globalization - all these things have had a hand in reshaping business and powering new business models. Companies today are wrapping service-based business models and while this shift adds new complexities for finance and has major revenue recognition implications, it also gives finance leaders huge opportunities to become bigger value creators for their business and make a stronger impact on enterprise-wide strategies - not financials.
Digital transformation has become a business imperative as most aspects of economic engagement have become digital. Around the globe, businesses and government agencies are re-engineering their technology infrastructures to keep pace with customer demands, spur innovation and stay competitive in an ever-evolving digital economy.

IT Transformation is a concept that resonates with companies even more now than it did 12 months ago. Although not synonymous with digital transformation, the two concepts are fundamentally linked together, as effective digital transformation cannot happen without IT Transformation.
A company that transforms its IT infrastructure no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed, legacy technologies. It sees a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness—tasks are automated, processes streamlined, and resources are freed up. Those IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation, allowing the company to thrive in today’s digital economy. It is able to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors—ultimately becoming the disruptor, not the disrupted.
A fundamental people-process-technology transformation enables businesses to remain
competitive in today’s innovation economy. Initiatives such as advanced security, fraud detection
services, connected consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices, augmented or virtual reality
experience, machine and deep learning, and cognitively enabled applications drive superior
business outcomes such as predictive marketing and maintenance.
Superior business outcomes require businesses to consider IT a core competency. For IT, an
agile, elastic, and scalable IT infrastructure forms the crucial underpinning for a superior service
delivery model. The more up to date the infrastructure, the more capable it is of supporting the
scale and complexity of a changing application landscape. Current-generation applications must
be supplemented and eventually supplanted with next-generation (also known as cloud-native)
applications — each with very different infrastructure requirements. Keeping infrastructure up
Today’s businesses are rapidly transforming to prepare for the changes taking place in the global economy. Companies of all sizes can benefit from tools that automate the deployment and ongoing maintenance of server environments. Put another way, in today’s digital economy, where users need access to intelligible data faster, IT organizations must employ tools that automate the delivery of IT as a Service (ITaaS).
Dell EMC’s Intelligent Automation simplifies the management and maintenance of its PowerEdge server hardware. Designed to drive down the cost and resources associated with server lifecycle management, Intelligent Automation relies on integrated Dell Remote Access Controller(iDRAC) and OpenManage server management software to deliver reliable and efficient automation to PowerEdge Servers.
