Cloud and monitoring are key to supporting digital transformation
Defining and Preparing for Digital Transformation
Digital transformation is a key initiative for enterprises that want to reach new customers and offer greater value via technology. Changing user expectations, new modes of engagement, and the need to improve responsiveness are the main factors driving companies to update outdated processes and develop new applications as part of a digital transformation strategy.
But in order to deliver on the promise of digital transformation, organizations must also modernize their infrastructure to support speed, scale, and change. Traditional monitoring and alerting strategies simply don’t provide the visibility and agility needed to operate in today’s elastic environments running on the cloud and in containers.
