Rising to the challenges of digital transformation
How the cloud is transforming traditional system houses – digitalisation is impossible without the public cloud.
What companies should consider when taking their first steps into the cloud.
IT is a crucial factor within digitalisation. “On-premises only” no longer makes the grade. Even now, the public cloud is an integral part of modern IT strategies. The cloud is growing inexorably while traditional IT structures are reaching their limits – for cost reasons and also due to the technical requirements of an increasingly agile market. Barely any companies want or are able to implement their multi-cloud strategy without external partners. So what roles and skills do the managed public cloud providers (MPCPs) offer in this context?
IONOS Cloud presents the Crisp Research AG strategy paper “System houses and software integrators in digital transformation.”
The digital transformation of entire industries offers significant opportunities to companies in Germany, but comes with a number of challenges as well. Fresh business models and new ways of creating value are evolving around the use and exploitation of accumulated digital data. But it is equally necessary to make decisions on how to tackle digitalisation from an operational perspective, on which budgets will be necessary and how the volumes of data can be processed, as well as on how this can be managed technically and in compliance with legal obligations – with a particular focus on data privacy.
A rule of thumb: a strong and reliable cloud provider is the best foundation for managing digital transformation. They will create a dependable basis for IT workloads – whether on their own or in cooperation with a technology partner who offers support and 24/7 availability. The Compute Engine ticks all the boxes with its unique and patented Data Centre Designer concept, the DCD for short. Our DCD lets you replicate to the greatest possible extent the familiar process of building and managing a physical data centre, but in this case it’s a virtual one that does not require wiring or other laborious processes. The DCD visualises the entire design and handling process just like diagrams on a whiteboard. Individual elements are assembled and connected effortlessly via drag and drop. It’s probably the most intuitive way to configure a data centre and its infrastructure.
Companies need to adapt to digitalisation incrementally and in doing so plan each definite stage. It is now a question of “how” and no longer just “when.” The white paper shows you what companies need to consider especially as they evolve toward digital maturity and how digitalisation can be implemented successfully in individual projects (including a clear check list).
