Struggling with Digital Transformation? Here’s why Red Hat OpenStack Might be the Answer

Organizations are increasingly looking to open source clouds and platforms to close skills gaps and prepare for the coming wave of digital transformation disruptions.

Consider this report from MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte. The study showed nine in 10 global executives predict their industries will be disrupted by digital trends. Unfortunately, only 44% of those same executives felt their organization was adequately prepared for the coming disruptions.

Interestingly, the ill-prepared companies weren’t just lacking the right tools and technology to straddle digital change. They were missing the people, processes and cultural requirements for digital transformation, too.

This gives an explanation for the rise of open source cloud solutions, such as Red Hat OpenStack, across organizations of all sizes. Not only does open source grant businesses a toolkit to take on digital disruption and hybrid cloud management, it equips them with the right approaches, from people to processes, to succeed in a new, ever-changing era of digital disruption.

Red Hat to the rescue.
