Jeff Clarke, Vice Chairman, Products and Operations, Dell Technologies.

A new study has validated that IT Transformation can result in bottom-line benefits that drive business differentiation, innovation and growth.
The new research conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) observed that today’s business landscape is rife with disruption, much of it driven by organisations using technology in new or innovative ways.
The research, which was released yesterday by Dell EMC revealed that In order to survive and thrive in today’s digital world, businesses are implementing new technologies, processes and skillsets to best address changing customer needs.
According to the report, a fundamental first step to this change is transforming IT, to help organisations bring products to market faster, remain competitive and drive innovation.
“Data is the new competitive edge-yet it’s become highly distributed across the edge, the core data centre and cloud. Organisations realize they have to move quickly to turn that data into business intelligence – requiring an end-to-end IT infrastructure that can manage, analyze, store and protect data everywhere it lives,” said Jeff Clarke, Vice Chairman, Products and Operations, Dell Technologies.
“We’re in the business of better business outcomes, giving our customers the ability make that end-to-end strategy a reality, driving disruptive innovation without the fear of being disrupted themselves.”
Clarke explained that ESG employed a research-based, data-driven maturity model to identify different stages of IT Transformation progress and determine the degree to which global organisations have achieved those different stages, based on their responses to questions about their organisations’ adoption of modernized data center technologies, automated IT processes and transformed organizational dynamics.
Commenting on the research, John McKnight, Vice President of Research, Enterprise Strategy Group said companies today need to be agile to stay competitive and drive growth, and IT Transformation can be a major enabler of that.
He said: “It’s clear that IT Transformation is increasingly resonating with companies and that senior executives recognize how IT Transformation is pivotal to overall business strategy and competitiveness.
While achieving transformation can be a major endeavor, our research shows ‘Transformed’ companies experience real business results, including being more likely to be ahead of the competition in bringing new products and services to market, making better, faster data-driven decisions than their competition, and exceeding their revenue goals.”
