IDC - Interconnection First - Building Your Digital Transformation Strategy on Platform Equinix

Business survival in the digital economy requires new thinking about IT architecture colocating to smart digital edge data centres – environments that support innovation, accelerate business velocity and enable greater operational flexibility. However, as organisations embark on the digital transformation journey, many face challenges in integrating and interconnecting the multiple IT systems, cloud services, networks, critical locations and partner ecosystems, using existing inward-focused IT and network environments.


IDC's 2015 Digital Transformation MaturityScape Benchmark Study revealed:

  • 64 percent of enterprises are digital explorers or players in the early stages of applying digital technologies
  • 22 percent of organisations are digital transformers or disruptors, with established leadership and continuous innovation in delivering digital products, services and customer experiences

As IT expands from being the back-office enabler of internal business processes toward a more prominent role as the engine powering digital business flows between people, locations, clouds and data, the old model of centralised IT siloed inside enterprise data centres is no longer sufficient.
