Golf is one of the world’s grand old games. Ironically, the most advanced technologies ensure it stays that way.
Callaway Golf Company is a prime example. The world’s largest golf club manufacturer with a presence in 110 countries, Callaway competes in an intense market and faces added pressure from a softening global economy. IT transformation is front and center in Callaway’s strategy to stay in front of the pack, with the ultimate objective of ensuring that IT transforms itself from a point of resistance to a point of reliance.
We promised them in early 2016, and they’re already here: IsilonSD Edge, Isilon OneFS 8.0 and Isilon CloudPools are available today. Together, these products can transform the way organizations store and use data — whether at the edge, the core or the cloud – by harnessing the power of the data lake.
Today we are announcing general availability of the newest version of ECS (EMC Elastic Cloud Storage), v2.2. With the industry’s most complete suite of software-defined storage (SDS) solutions, EMC is firmly committed to helping organizations harness today’s digital transformation. A key part of EMC’s SDS portfolio, ECS is a software-defined, object-based cloud storage platform that provides global scale with up-to-exabyte capacity with compelling economics to customers.
There is a secular shift at play within the IT industry. Traditional markets are eroding rapidly. As organizations seek to innovate using new digital business mediums, many are moving their infrastructures to the cloud. A major challenge they find is that building cloud apps not only means a whole new set of tools, but also a new mindset. To truly embrace any new way of doing things requires a commitment to learn by doing, which is why we are proud to announce the official opening of the new EMC-Pivotal Dojo in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The Dojo is “the place of the way,” the new way that we develop software in today’s world. It’s where we contribute to open source Cloud Foundry. It’s where we work with customers to build software. It’s where we practice lean software development and continuously innovate to solve customer needs.
A recent report by IDG Research Services commissioned by EMC demonstrates the close connections between hybrid cloud computing and digital business. The report pegs hybrid cloud as the “great enabler of digital business”, but it’s more than a proven enabler. Hybrid cloud can accelerate progress and amplify the benefits of digital business initiatives. There’s a benefits “multiplier effect” when companies put more workloads in hybrid cloud and put the agility of hybrid cloud to work.
It probably goes without saying that digital business is high on corporate agendas (90% of respondents to the global IDG survey count it among their top business priorities) and, therefore, high on the agendas of CIOs and IT organizations. Consumer technologies and the Internet have altered forever the expectations of consumers and commercial customers. People and organizations expect to do business quickly, easily, anytime and anywhere. To remain competitive, companies must further digitize their processes and interactions – and deliver engaging customer experiences.
