Dell Technologies has released the results from a global study that shows organizations are shifting their digital transformation programs into high gear and have already accomplished in a few months what would normally have taken years.
“The current times have made Indian organizations realize the importance of having an IT infrastructure which is flexible and provides them with the ability to adapt to the ever-changing business environment. We are living in a data era, where constant investment in digital technologies to meet the barriers to progress is a must. This shift in approach by organizations here recently is the primary reason why there is a rise in digital leaders in the country” said Mr. Alok Ohrie, President and Managing Director, Dell Technologies India. “ At Dell Technologies, we believe that our constant innovative efforts, customer-first approach and our holistic portfolio make us the right digital partners for businesses and we shall continue to strive to help them achieve digital maturity, leading to business continuity during all times.”
The findings, updated biennially in the Dell Technologies’ Digital Transformation Index (DT Index), indicate organizations are accelerating transformational technology programs during the global COVID-19 pandemic in India.
In one of the first global studies to measure business behavior as a result of the pandemic, Dell Technologies’ 2020 Index found that 94.7 percent of Indian organizations (Global: 79.7% & APJ: 83.6%) have fast-tracked some digital transformation programs this year and 92.3 percent (Global: 79.3% & APJ: 86%) are re-inventing their business model.
