This is the challenge facing organisations that are unable embrace to the disruptions created by 3rd Platform technologies, such as mobile, big/data analytics, social, AI/cognitive, and the Internet of Things.

For organisations to survive—and then thrive—in the future, they “must evolve the business to the point where they act like “digital native” enterprises to compete effectively and avoid being disrupted,” according to Intelligent Infrastructure: Powering the Transformation of Digital Enterprises.

Key to becoming a digital native is leveraging modern, intelligent, predictive and self-healing infrastructure that provides highly agile, flexible, and reliable infrastructure services to meet the scalability and performance requirements of the business.

This is what Lenovo’s software-defined infrastructure, including the ThinkAgile HX Series, ThinkAgile VX Series, and ThinkAgile SX for Microsoft Azure Stack, provides.
