Evolving Your Business Future with Digital-First Architectures

Organizations have progressively adopted new digital business models for the past two years and transformed to meet their customers’ increasing demands readily. As a result, this technological boom has created a significant digital divide for businesses still operating with traditional digital infrastructure. Fast forward to 2022, these businesses may encounter agility, speed, and security challenges that prevent them from delivering a world-class digital product or services to meet their customers’ evolving needs. Inevitably, these challenges will likely be even more significant when faced with issues such as growing numbers of distributed users, tightened operating budgets and physical constraints of business expansion.

Digital leaders in Asia Pacific are very aware of the urgent need for digital transformation, and of the vast business opportunities which come together with the challenges. Many of these business frontrunners are Equinix’s customers and partners. According to the Equinix 2020-2021 Global Tech Trends Survey (GTTS), 76% of IT decision-makers in Asia-Pacific state that digitizing their IT infrastructure is a top priority, with 68% planning to improve network optimization. At the same time, according to research from Statista, one of the key constraints for small- and medium-sized businesses is the lack of necessary technology which is essential for them to take the first step in the journey of digital transformation.
