Dawn of Digital Transformation Economy and Digital Enterprises
As per IDC FutureScape report, the adoption of cloud and other technologies like mobile, big data analytics have accelerated as enterprises are undergoing Digital Transformation (DX) on a massive scale. It further adds that this DX will attain macroeconomic scale over the next 3 to 4 years and will change the way enterprises operate and will reshape the global economy. IDC has named it as – the dawn of DX economy.
Every enterprise that is growing, irrespective of its age or industry, must become ‘digitally native’ in the way its executives and employees think, what they produce, and how they operate. Moreover, the cloud adoption and digital transformation is happening at much faster rate than expected and only those enterprises that will be able to keep pace with this emerging DX economy will earn an early competitive advantage.
In this era of digital transformation where we have already seen smart tech shirts and sensor enabled diapers, more digitally enhanced products will be launched in the marketplace with IoT, 3D printing, and cognitive/AI technologies. So, businesses need to rethink their way of doing business.
“By 2018, lack of vision, credibility, or ability to influence will keep 70% of IT executives from attaining leadership roles in enterprise DX”– IDC FutureScape.
To compete in the DX economy, IT leadership must have –
- Knowledge of emerging tech capabilities and limitations to understand the new options and possibilities.
- Ability to build a digital disruption culture to challenge the status quo, set new benchmarks and create digital services that are relevant and competitive externally.
- Continuous creativity and out-of-the-box thinking.
- Adaptive risk management capabilities. Businesses must ensure that they will be able to recover from a system failure, virus outbreak or data corruption quickly and reliably.
- Competency and transparency on topics of security, privacy, and regulatory implications.
Thus, businesses need various innovative solutions to compete in the digital transformation era. Microsoft Azure is one such product that can help.
“46% of customers prefer Azure over any other public cloud.”

Microsoft Azure – the open and interoperable cloud platform is being increasingly adopted by the enterprises for its agility, scalability, security, backup and flexibility. They are utilizing its strengths to generate revenue and optimize resources for their businesses.
Here is the Microsoft Azure cloud momentum.
Why managed Azure services?
We are living in the era of managed Infrastructure services and Managed is the new normal. So, when an enterprise opts for Managed Azure cloud services, it gets end to-end solutions along with relevant consultation that will help its business to thrive.
Doing business with technology is not important but how much and what you can achieve with that technology is more important.
Microsoft Azure provides a multitude of services that enterprises can assemble like building blocks to address a wide array of workloads and applications. But, knowing where to begin is often difficult.
Enterprises grapple with concerns like management and resource challenges, including on-boarding, architecture design, orchestration, OS patching, optimization, database administration, storage management, configuring and monitoring backups, load balancer monitoring, VMs monitoring and more.
Azure does not run itself, neither every enterprise infrastructure is tuned to run it. An enterprise needs experts to handle and help them take advantage of its core capabilities.
