Digital Transformation and Cloud Computing

Digital transformation is not just a buzz word anymore; it is a critical business strategy for enterprises. Innovation in business demands a strong merger between ever evolving technology and your enterprise’s digital transformation strategy.

75% of CIOs and their enterprises will fail to meet all their digital objectives through 2019, dragged down by conflicting digital transformation imperatives, ineffective technology innovation, cloud infrastructure transition, and under­funded end-of-life core systems.1

90% of IT decision-makers claim legacy systems are preventing them from harnessing the digital technologies they need to grow and become more efficient.2

72% of CIOs’ budgets are spent on existing IT concerns, while only 28% goes to new projects and innovation.3

Cloud computing is foundational to an effective digital transformation, but many do not know where to start or are too afraid to upgrade their legacy servers and storage systems. Many companies spend time on legacy issues instead of investing in new technologies to evolve their business, but why? It’s because they haven’t found the right cloud computing partner… until now.

Supermicro helps customers build cloud infrastructure that lasts. In 2017, Fortune magazine named Supermicro as the #1 fastest growing IT company in the world and #18 fastest growing company overall. In Q1 '18 IDC named Supermicro the 3rd largest server company worldwide with a year-over-year volume growth of 32.9%.4

Supermicro has quickly become a global leader in cloud system technology, with green computing platforms developed for a range of markets. With Supermicro, you can be confident that you are working with a technology-leading, innovative, and knowledgeable partner who makes your business’ digital transformation simple.
