“How are you helping companies with their enormous pressure to transform?” was the first question asked when I spoke to one of the most widely followed commentators on technology, Ronald van Loon.
We are humbled that today, our customers around the world are relying on us more than ever. It is all about resiliency and transformation; we are helping our customers ensure they are resilient during this time and really anytime as we move forward. From this, our customers are reimaging and reinventing their businesses to lead them into a successful future.
Companies in every industry are experiencing new realities and in some cases economic uncertainty. Business are adapting to rise above these challenges. Things like operating anywhere, the need for elasticity and rapid innovation create an even greater urgency for cloud and digital transformation.
We are helping keep the world moving. We are helping Telcos keep people connected' hospitals deliver care; airlines ensure travel; retailers provide food and necessities; utility companies keep the power on and governments keep people safe and informed.
Cloud allows us not only to address the economic environment through elasticity and automation but it enables business to accelerate their digital transformation. It allows companies to engage with employees and customers in new ways. It allows them to rapidly deliver solutions to market quickly, perhaps never more important than now. And, importantly it also helps us inform our decisions. We can collect data, and get better insights. These analytics are critical to get an understanding of what is going on in the markets that we serve and how we best respond.
We have this idea of insights and innovation; where we provide tools that provide deeper insight into things like a company’s supply chain, or customer behaviour or importantly today, their employees. Alongside this is the idea of being able to deploy innovation rapidly to extend the capabilities of a company and its offering. This is a core mandate as organisations aim to keep pace with an ever-changing landscape.
