ICT systems are the leading providers of bespoke modular solutions, as they sit at the heart of digital transformation.
Modularity is the most agile and effective solution to organisational and energy-related challenges. It can be found in infrastructure, buildings, offices, smart cities and more. This tailor-made flexibility can also be found in ICT services, in the design and implementation of flexible modular solutions, from the cloud to data architecture.
Agility, high performance and responsiveness are all features of the cloud- public, private and hybrid. This flexibility is necessary for businesses who wish to adapt to changing environments, as new services can be implemented quickly and at a low cost.
Talking to Hermann Dupré, Global Business Development Manager – Cloud & Datacentre and Alexander van Helm, Lead Architect at Axians, The Agility Effect learns the benefits of cloud, it’s essential role in digital transformation and the role of data architecture.
The top benefits of the cloud
- Rapidly adapt services to be in line with client’s requirements
- Providing a competitive advantage
- Ability to easily roll out new solutions
- Test ideas quickly in the market, allowing businesses to make modifications that meet the needs of their clients
- Cut costs and save time
- Make organisations more agile.
- Employee productivity including the ease of remote working due to its flexibility.
Data architecture at the heart of digital transformation
Data is becoming more and more available, stored on traditional databases, Big Data platforms, cloud applications, internal files, blogs, social media and more. Organisations understand the need to manage and gain commercial value from this information to improve the business line and decision-making processes. However, these numerous data silos are a challenge to integrate.
Unfortunately, current IT systems can no longer keep up with this immense workload. They were not developed for this intensive data usage and therefore need to be updated, expanded and modified.
