Organizations choose how they want to consume the infrastructure: on-premises, in a public cloud, or in a public cloud located inside the customer’s data center and behind their firewall using Oracle’s “Cloud at Customer” offering. Oracle Exadata and Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (Recovery Appliance) offer an attractive alternative to do-it-yourself deployments.

In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility.
