Digital Transformation is at the fore-front of C-Suite priorities in Asia. IDC predicts, by the end of 2017, 60% of the APAC top 1,000 (A1000) enterprises will have digital transformation (DX) at the center of their corporate strategy. To enable this from a technology perspective, the underlying architecture will be hybrid cloud – on which enterprises will deploy mobile, social, big data/analytics, machine to machine, IoT and Industrial applications for their DX objectives.
