Transformation: It’s Not Just for Caterpillars!


“Remember, transformation is not just for caterpillars – you can transform too!”

Partner with a certain chamelion to speed your transformationNow more than ever, IT transformation is critical for business. Just this month, IDC released its top 10 predictions for digital transformation. What was prediction number one? By 2020, at least 55% of organizations will be digitally determined, transforming markets and reimagining the future through new business models and digitally-enabled products and services. Whether it’s your favorite local restaurant, that “big-box” store up the street or a multi-national airline – all business is digital business these days.

We are in the midst of a digital economy fueled by the explosive growth of mobile devices giving consumers access to anytime-anywhere goods and services. To keep up with these expectations, there is increasing pressure requiring businesses of all sizes in all industries to transform their data centers.

A Journey You Have to Start

The rate of technological change is increasing daily. The longer a company waits to start transformation the more difficult (and expensive) it will get. While one company is maintaining the status quo, a competitor will be accelerating their transformation. Digital transformation will not get easier to implement and it will not get cheaper. Companies – across all industries – don’t have time to wait.

With all this pressure to compete and deliver the on demand access that customers have come to expect, a digital transformation may seem like a daunting and impossible undertaking. But it doesn’t have to be. Partnering with a company like SUSE can help businesses jump start their transformation process and be there every step of the way for support and training to ensure a successful transition.
