The only way is digital

Watch, listen and learn from a panel of tech influencers and digital transformation experts discuss the delicate balance between staying ahead and keeping control when shifting to digital. The promise of faster, more agile technology is appealing, but it’s not a race – we discuss the challenge of ensuring what’s implemented can be managed in practice. An investment of 30 minutes – but well worth it.

How can you optimize costs and create agility in times of uncertainty?

European tech leaders believe technology will make them more resilient in the period ahead, and we know from the experience of the pandemic that it’s become vital to adapt at pace. There are many possible approaches to create resilience, and many are choosing multi-cloud as their strategy to respond in uncertain times.

How Can You Optimise Costs

Digital infrastructure of the future

There are countless worries on the horizon for businesses: from economic uncertainty to complex cyber security attacks. If you want to plan ahead and understand what your digital infrastructure needs to look like in the future, this guide is for you.

Build an adaptive organization

The reality is that most organizations have migrated, but now need to optimize cost and agility through cloud transformation and integration, which involves potentially balancing multi-clouds and hybrid IT infrastructures to streamline business functions – and this is where it all starts to get a bit messy.

It’s a journey, not a destination

Digital transformation is not a journey with a start point and a destination – it’s a constant cycle where organizations need to frequently re-evaluate and course correct to become truly adaptive for the future.


Protected foundations:

In the first stage of transformation, organizations focus on building secure infrastructure environments and providing a solid base for future growth. Before moving on, complete confidence is needed in the safety of data, digital assets & critical services.

Optimize cost and agility:

The next phase involves balancing multi-clouds and hybrid IT infrastructures to streamline all business functions. This can reduce costs, improve efficiency and enhance service through cloud-based modernization of both infrastructure and applications.

Enhance effectiveness:

At this stage organizations need to maximize their new intelligent systems and streamline their operational processes. This will support decision-making and rapid action, speeding up the pace of operational activities.

Build services faster:

This is where data really plays its part. By integrating data and making it more accessible, new applications can be added at pace, which can transform the experiences of both internal and external consumers through digital product development using agile/DevOps practices – this is where true transformation really kicks-in.

Drive insight and new value:

Availability and accessibility of data means that emerging technologies can be added, driving forward innovation and opening new, sustainable sources of value, leading to a continual focus on innovation, both in terms of technology and the means of achieving it.

The start point can be anywhere and return to the starting point as often as necessary, then even go round the cycle over and over. As transformation is a moving target, there’s always the next industry problem to solve – so the key is to keep moving.

The outcomes you define are what count

Cloud (in all its varieties) is now the foundation of greater efficiency, empowered workforces, immersive customer experiences, and agile systems. But only if you clearly define the outcomes you want to achieve and then match your cloud investments or investment strategy to their demands.
