Move workloads to the cloud. Automate your infrastructure. Streamline your tech stack.

As an IT leader, you are no doubt bombarded with these directives every day – from industry literature, from your boss, and even from that badgering voice in your head telling you that you need to do something. You are not alone.

According to a recent report, digital transformation technologies and services were expected to grow by 10.4 percent in 2020 to $1.3 trillion.[1] Data center transformation is the order of the day for most organizations, but you wake up to one burning question every morning: where do I start? Here are four areas that are key to the success of your digital transformation initiative.

Visibility
To make meaningful change, you first need to understand what is happening in your IT environment. You must be able to continuously monitor your systems so that you can quickly respond to any issues that arise. You can’t react to things you aren’t aware of so gaining an enterprise-view of your systems is critical.

Automation
With demands on your organization growing almost daily, you can’t squander your limited resources with basic manual tasks. Implementing an automation strategy wherever possible is the first important step to freeing up your resources for more value-added activities.

Security
You only need to scroll through your news feed on any given day to understand the dangers of lax cybersecurity. Modernizing your data center will not yield the benefits you seek if you don’t have the proper security systems and protocols in place.

Agility
Constant change is a way of life in the IT world. Keeping up with that level of change allows you to take advantage of technology advances that drive operational efficiency and enable effective responsiveness to issues as they arise.
