Storage-as-a-Service empowers today’s companies to focus on business outcomes rather than managing infrastructure
A company’s ability to successfully capture new opportunities is directly correlated to how efficiently and effectively it can leverage its data and technology to improve operations and customer engagement.
Unfortunately, many businesses have established, arguably archaic operational infrastructure in place, and are now facing mounting pressure to update their data gathering and processing procedures to not only grow, but also remain competitive.
To help your customers begin their digital transformation, they must first off-load their lower-value IT activities to free up their IT teams so that they can concentrate on what matters moving forward. One of the more effective – and efficient – ways to do this is to shift from a traditional capital-centric, purchasing infrastructure support model to instead embracing an as-a-Service model.
Many of today’s leading businesses have already embraced an as-a-Service model for their IT infrastructure. As a solutions provider, you can help your customers engage with this modern approach with Dell Technologies and its APEX Data Storage Services offering, which empowers customers with new ways to manage, access, and consume technology.
