Businesses turn to consumption models for agility and cost efficiency
FYI, this story is more than a year old
Demands are becoming more diverse and complex as new business applications and advanced technologies emerge such as artificial intelligence, cloud-as-a-service, IoT, machine learning, and mobility. Gartner reports that 47% of CEOs are being challenged by their board of directors to make progress in digital business.
In today’s fast-paced, multicloud world of digital transformation, how can IT drive business outcomes?
Specifically, is it possible for data centre professionals to balance the need to rapidly scale and accelerate technology adoption all while managing IT spending?
Customers are looking for solutions that can dynamically adapt to and reliably address today’s fluctuations in demand.

The ability to provide capacity on-demand to support seasonal spikes or rapid shifts is a huge obstacle from a technological perspective.
Consumption models allow for greater agility and the ability to better match expenses with revenue.
Upfront capital investment can drop below a third of the purchase price when businesses take advantage of the payment deferral and flexible consumption model options.Financing business-critical infrastructure
