Lagos, Nigeria. 21.10.16. Digital disruption is shaking up all types of organization in all industries. In a recent Dell Technologies study , half (48%) of global business leaders from mid-size to large enterprises confessed they don’t know what their industry will look like in three years.

They agreed that moving toward a cloud model, expanding software development capabilities and enabling faster innovation and deeper insights from data are key strategies to digital transformation. However companies are struggling to evolve their data centers, with 69% saying they are being held back by too many traditional applications. They are challenged with reducing sprawl and spend, while bringing systems up-to-date.
