Video: Hybrid Cloud: the gateway to Digital Transformation

When it comes to digital transformation, the CIO’s priorities have changed beyond all recognition. Traditionally focused on cost control and operational efficiency, IT has now become far more fundamental to the way organizations develop and provide services to customers. It’s all about innovation and providing business value outcomes.

This transition is not without its challenges, with the IT department having to shift their approach from traditional management of IT while adapting to meet the demands of the wider business which are accelerating at a rapid rate.

Hybrid cloud is one of the simplest and safest ways to achieve this. What companies are now seeking is a single, secure, multi-cloud platform on which to run and manage all their applications – legacy, new world and mission-critical – now and in the future.

In this video, Guy Lidbetter discuss the challenges created by digital transformation, cloud market trends and how the Atos Digital Private Cloud, working with VMware, is giving clients the freedom to innovate, while significantly cutting operational costs to re-invest in new digital initiatives.
