Digital Transformation is inevitable for today's businesses.
The new digital trend requires enterprises to set aside capital to invest in new IT infrastructure technologies to lower future costs, generate higher profits, and to ensure that company business models are prepared to adopt emerging or disruptive technologies and services.
This change is driven by technological innovation and realised by the rise of cloud applications and the advancement of fog devices (i.e. smart terminal devices).
At the QNAP 2020 TechDay, we will demonstrate our latest technologies to help businesses succeed in digital transformation, and to help them realise the near-limitless potential of future IT trends and services.
