Established organizations around the world are grappling with the dawn of the digital transformation (DX) economy as they find themselves disrupted by digital natives. In the digital age, traditional organizations risk being disrupted if they keep the status quo. For resource-constrained IT organizations, cloud services will be the foundation for their DX journey.
