The pandemic also pushed the demand for cloud to support digital transformation across industries. We saw companies across the spectrum, from small and medium enterprises to large enterprises, investing in cloud-based applications to support business agility and remote work, he tells Sudhir Chowdhary in a recent interview. Excerpts:
What are the challenges facing IT decision makers currently and how is AMD positioned to address these?
COVID-19 accelerated digital transformation across companies. Today organisations are focused on setting up dynamic, agile, robust, and secure IT infrastructure that can meet the changing demands of modern workloads. The disruption brought about by the pandemic, has made this the central concern for IT decision makers. They are asking how can we ensure our organisations hardware, software, network resources and services are reliable, accessible 24×7 and work in tandem. They are looking at migrating to cloud to optimise workload performance, maintain scalability and free up resources for other business-critical needs. They want to secure end user data and reduce the total cost of ownership as they transition to virtualised environments.
