In today’s rapidly changing world, digital transformation is the key to any organization’s success. For every senior executive, leveraging the technology available to make their organization stay ahead in this digital world is important.

With the wave of technological change, how can business leaders pick out the benefits, stay ahead of their competition, and achieve business objectives?

From IT to Finance and HR, business leaders from different departments of an organization are using Cloud technologies for faster growth, cost savings, increased productivity, and better collaboration. This digital transformation has helped companies to overcome the challenges of using physical servers, computers, and other devices and reducing the flexibility of working from anywhere.

According to Gartner:

By 2020, 80% of outsourced service desks for global enterprises will no longer require human service desk agents for the first contact.

By 2020, 50% of end-user outsourcing deals will be centered on digital workplace transformation to support the growth of the digital business.

For most organizations, the move to a hybrid cloud/datacentre configuration is no longer a question of “if” but “when” and “how”. The list of reasons spurring this wave is many: cost and time savings, security, flexibility, scalability, responsiveness, speed of implementation, among many others. At the same time, reasons to hesitate can also be many: cost uncertainty, staff capability, compliance, and privacy concerns, governance, and data sovereignty concerns.

What is Azure Managed Transformation:

Softlanding, in partnership with Microsoft, has developed a new offering specifically designed to assist organizations with extending datacentres to the cloud using a strategic roadmap that takes full advantage of the benefits and capabilities of the target platforms.
