IDC’s research demonstrates that enterprise organizations are prioritizing digital infrastructure resiliency as a foundational element of their IT strategy. Customers are looking for richer levels of visibility, cross-platform control, advanced data management, and protection that spans the entire edge-to-core continuum. The pandemic has shown that organizations that prioritize adaptability and resiliency are much better equipped to adapt and meet changing market demands. Because of this realization, organizations are now focused on managing outcomes instead of IT infrastructure and looking to vendors and partners to help reach this goal. Recent IDC surveys demonstrate the customer interest and market momentum. In a February 2021 survey, IDC observed that 61% of organizations worldwide were interested in shifting to consumption-based models for IT investments. This interest is being driven by an explosion of interconnected applications and data across multiple locations that stretch from edge to core. All of this serves to demonstrate a clear market opportunity and the need for new operating models like APEX.
IDC interviewed organizations that have deployed significant workloads on Dell Technologies APEX as-a-service hyperconverged, storage, and data protection solutions that are powered by Intel hardware (Dell Technologies APEX) about their experiences. Interviewed Dell Technologies customers reported using APEX to not only establish more efficient and cost-effective IT environments but also ensure that they can adjust to and match changing business needs.
