At Zerto we talk to customers every day who are deeply engaged in transformational projects: from datacenter consolidations to the disruptive power of big data, every industry and vertical is feeling the dizzying effects of digital-first strategies. Thom Groot, Digital Director at the AA, puts it like this: “Digital Transformation is another term for what I call business transformation. Digital is at the heart of businesses and in my view, it’s a reflection of the fact that customer behaviour is changing. The digital age has accelerated that change and therefore businesses need to be fast at changing themselves to meet that customer behaviour.”
The business transformation Groot describes presents a tremendous opportunity for IT—including everyone from the CIO to the engineer to the admin—to be strategic, trusted advisers at their organization. The pace of change and the demands for agility do present challenges for IT, but top teams across the globe are embracing the idea of resilience as the best strategy for meeting those challenges and driving digital transformation. These leaders know that IT resilience allows them to meet today’s demands while effectively innovating for the future.
