Why digital transformation? Why with Datum?

A trusted platform on which to consolidate your physical IT estate before transforming to your chosen multi-platform hybrid solution.

Keep up in a changing world

We have a track record of supporting our clients throughout their digital transformation processes, and of working with partners to deliver the bigger picture:

  • The ability to flex both up and down over the lifetime of the contract in terms of power, space and footprint
  • Short-term access to additional space and power when required
  • Access to multiple cloud platforms and carriers

Advances in technology, digitisation, budgetary pressures and globalisation are combining to bring both challenges and opportunities to businesses of all sizes. Right now, corporate IT is under pressure from all areas to transform operations and deliver more agile solutions to meet competitive forces and to achieve key business objectives. Due to these pressures, most companies are engaged in, or contemplating, digital transformation at either a tactical or strategic level and are increasingly seeking new hybrid delivery models as part of that process. Colocation has a strong role in delivering a platform within those hybrid models.

Our two-phase approach to digital transformation

Because dealing with the physical and virtual transformation as one project can be complex, companies often approach digital transformation in two phases:

  • transition (which can involve decanting out of a variety of physical locations)
  • virtual transformation with consolidation

Our support as a trusted partner and data centre services landing zone has been named by our clients as a key success factor in their transformation activities. We have the approach and credentials to be the key partner in your process, providing both a staging post for the physical transition and a core component of the final hybrid IT strategy:

  • A trusted landing zone for the transition, enabling you to take stock, ready to lift and shift as the project develops.
  • Cloud and carrier connectivity cuts lead times and costs in developing the hybrid solution you design, with built-in flexibility to reduce your data centre footprint over time.
