Dedicoat also highlighted six imperatives that will be important to the development of digital transformation:
- Security – the best digital offense starts with the best digital defense
- Automation in the network – it’s time to let machines run machines, and virtual reality becomes a key part of this space
- Optimising a multi-cloud reality – businesses are talking about what it is, but should be talking about what it does for their companies
- Moving into analytics – customers need to unlock insights with network-born analytics
- Development of apps – having a software capability for products and services to depend on
- Continued learning and self development – building on an ecosystem of IT capabilities across Australia with certified programs that stress on digital transformation
In closing, Boal also said the company will also be stepping up efforts in its SMB through more partners and new digital channels.
In addition, he reiterated that the company has been “contributing extensively” to the national cyber security agenda, working with partners in “an ever expanding ecosystem”, working together with other IT and industrial players and building solutions as a service to make workloads easier for partners.
