Digital transformation changes people’s mindsets and expectations when it comes to data and the digital services that the data powers. It’s why, at organizations all over the world, IT is evolving from a cost center to a profit center.

They need to meet expectations while focusing mainly on delivering excellence when it comes to the user, developer, and customer experience.

This is even more important for unstructured storage platforms.
