  • Summary

    Digital transformation is not only real, but it is also critical to a company’s overall competitiveness. The rapid pace of change has been accelerated by new technologies, increased volume, and variety of data along with new approaches with containerization when developing new applications.

    Digital transformation has brought new workloads, analytics, and AI to increase business agility and better understanding of a company’s existing customer base.

     

    New deployments in the enterprise using traditional IT infrastructure and processes can take months to implement. Time to deployment and value are metrics that have become more critical as companies strive to leverage larger amount of information while controlling the cost of managing and analyzing the data.

     

    Traditional infrastructure and point solutions have not been able to keep pace and are slowing down time to insight and value. As a result, many organizations are modernizing their data management solutions. But implementing with existing skillsets can be a challenge.

     

    HPE Ezmeral Managed Services for HPE Ezmeral software delivers faster time to production, removes product risks, and simplifies technology adoption. As a result, your business experiences value faster, mitigates costly installation and configuration errors, and prevents deceleration of your digital initiatives due to any skillset shortage.
