Many companies share the need to migrate to and operate in the cloud, get their networks software-driven in order to create workplaces of the future. The Foundry will empower customers to implement an integrated cloud solution with ease. We will help them design, secure and deploy cloud-enabled solutions, in short, customise the flexible infrastructure they need to accelerate digital transformation, adopt new and disruptive technologies, and boost competitiveness,” said Bill Chang, Chief Executive Officer for Group Enterprise at Singtel.

“The Asia-Pacific region differs in technological maturity, but one thing is common – the recognition of digital transformation as a business catalyst. In order to enable digital transformation progress in the region, it is essential for organizations to integrate their existing products and services – without silos,” said Duncan Hewett, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Asia Pacific and Japan, VMware.

VMware is hosting more than 120 C-level executives at the annual VMware CIO Forum for Southeast Asia and Korea, showcasing a comprehensive suite of solutions designed to accelerate performance and drive results from digital investment into the next stage of growth.

“IT environments in APJ are now a mixture of legacy infrastructure and public and private clouds, and that’s what we hear from some of our largest customers. VMware is committed to working with our customers to outline the strategic measures they need to address, enabling them for success and creating new possibilities for their businesses,” said Hewett.

With enterprises and governments in Southeast Asia prioritising digital transformation as a cornerstone in business growth and smart nation blueprints, DX is a key focus area at the event.

In partnership with the International Data Corporation (IDC), C-level executives will focus on the next progression of the DX journey to better understand the scope and impact of DX and facilitate an in-depth analysis of DX investment relative to strategic enterprise priorities.

Based on findings from their latest (conducted in 2017) Digital Transformation study in the region, titled “IDC MaturityScape Benchmark: Digital Transformation in APEJ, 2018”, organisations in Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) have progressed from resisting digital transformation to exploring digital transformation initiatives.
