TAKE THE QUIZ
Technology is rapidly transforming the way everyone does business. Yet many organizations are falling behind. Their infrastructures lack the bandwidth to keep up with rising demands. Their security isn’t updated to respond to advanced threats. Their storage capabilities are severely lacking. They need to replace aging hardware and software to address agility issues and maintain a competitive edge.
Plus, a shift is taking place in the way that businesses make technology- buying decisions. Today, it’s the business owners, rather than IT personnel, who are driving IT spend based on improving business outcomes. In fact, analysts expect that over the next 3 years, 90% of technology spending will come from outside the IT department.
By 2020, an estimated 40% of organizations will be affected by these new business models and the resulting shift in market dynamics, according to Gartner.
Digital disruptors are shaking up the IT landscape with innovation. Rapid growth in mobility, IoT, analytics and cloud is driving new opportunities.
Across healthcare, retail and manufacturing verticals, devices and processes are becoming more network connected.
In short, there’s a lot of opportunity out there.

IT AGILITY AND SCALE
IMPROVED USER EXPERIENCE
LOWER IT COSTS
