According to Andrew Brinded, Vice President & General Manager EMEA Sales, Nutanix, at the end of 2020 almost all companies found themselves having to redistribute their business and technological resources.

With the recovery of the global economy, organisations have the opportunity to reorganise their resources. And to use them in such a way as to create the maximum possible value for employees, partners and customers.

The pandemic has set in motion, or in some cases has accelerated, a series of changes that were already emerging. For example, customers and employees are increasingly wondering how they want to live and what their work and business are all about. As a result, it will be increasingly important to adopt a more customer-oriented approach. This will in turn result in a greater demand for automated and data-based business processes.

Nutanix, the key role of IOC and IT departments

In this sense, IOCs and IT teams can help companies re-locate resources, adopt new tools and new working methods. On the one hand, the technology managers for digital transformation will help companies reduce the costs of business processes and IT costs. On the other hand, technology will increase its contribution to the economic success of companies. Thanks to the decrease in repetitive low value tasks and the improvement of information flows and connectivity throughout the company.

According to Nutanix’s manager, during the pandemic, the corporate leaders of many companies have become a task force dedicated to strategic business issues. This includes crisis management, cost reduction, recovery of competitive advantage, sustainability and return to profitability. During a global crisis, all these aspects require a redeployment of resources.

Looking ahead, corporate executives intend to focus on profitability and sustainability of the business. This represents a great opportunity to redistribute resources again. And, in doing so, use the power of technology to benefit the company in the long term.

The transformations of IT departments in digital transformation according to Nutanix

According to IDC, this is the most difficult challenge that the IOC will face in their career. Digital transformation leaders will seize the opportunity to turn their companies around for a new future.

The results of the IDC research are in line with those of the Nutanix studies. According to which, after successfully reorganizing their company during the pandemic, the IOC will have to cope with the increased use and widespread adoption of digital technologies.

In doing so, they will go beyond the classic IT department boundaries and integrate more with the business processes to help other teams solve the problems they face. All this will lead companies to become more agile and able to adapt. IDC claims that technology will become the operating system of the company. I agree with this statement: if companies are to be flexible, then business processes can no longer be fixed. Both business processes and the tools enabling them must be able to change quickly according to the needs of the employee or customer.

New values

From the point of view of customers and employees, the pandemic also brought out or brought to the fore the demand for new values. After the redistribution of company resources following the pandemic, companies are expected to reorganise now, adopting a more value-oriented approach to their workforce, work and customers. According to an important study conducted by consultants at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), 89% of the workforce expects a certain level of flexibility at the workplace. 209,000 people were interviewed in 190 countries, including outside employees, and the demand for a hybrid workweek model was strongly raised.

All this, according to Nutanix, does not only concern the future of the office. The redistribution of resources that are no longer gathered at the premises of the holding is also an opportunity. It can be used to move the most valuable asset of a company …………………………..

With talents scattered throughout the territory or in the market where a company operates, you will have a more in-depth view and knowledge of the needs of your customers. And thus to create stronger and more effective relationships. Better products and services will result and a more profitable business.

Not only those working in the world of technology find an increase in hybrid work patterns. The political think tank Demos recently produced a report stating that better alignment between work and private life leads to increased productivity and that a hybrid work model is the best possible path to achieve this. Indeed, many major technology companies report that the productivity of their employees increased during the pandemic, another argument for the redistribution of activities towards greater flexibility and consequent productivity.

The importance of data management for modern organisations

The pandemic and new ways of working have highlighted the potential that technology offers to companies and entire sectors.

Gartner expects investment in services and products for the application infrastructure to increase by 26.6% per year. According to the manager, the data-based study from the Nutanix Xi Beam multicloud cost governance service, which the IOCs use for cloud infrastructure management, shows that companies are accelerating the adoption of relational databases as-a- Companies with a high level of maturity use over 15 cloud services as part of their cloud consumption strategy (it is interesting to note that Azure users also use other Azure services more frequently). L’Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) for processing, networking and storage remains the main expenditure item for the cloud.

Xi Beam’s analysis shows that cloud-based databases are the second highest expense item. This suggests that companies not only wish to manage their data more efficiently and the cost of storing large amounts of data, but also that a wider distribution of data benefits innovation projects.

Cloud and data at the base of artificial intelligence and machine learning

Just before Coronavirus’s pandemic caused the most significant corporate reorganisation ever seen in our lives, The Economist Intelligence Unit reported that the leaders were planning to increase the adoption of emerging technologies. Like automation of robotic processes, networks defined by software and of course machine learning and artificial intelligence.

All technologies that will be based on the use of large clouds and data sets. These technologies allow resource redeployment, freeing staff from repetitive tasks that do not generate value. By drawing in-depth analysis from data archives and improving customer services. All this must be exploited to assign employees the tasks that really create value for the company.

In conclusion, the company’s manager notes that the business is no longer linked to a place. This means that companies can now offer their customers value where they are looking for it.
