Why HPE GreenLake is a must for startups looking to experience the cloud


Does your company still use paper-based manual processing? Have you experienced multiple data breaches because your software wasn't updated with the recommended security patches? Are you relying on outdated systems to connect with your employees and external stakeholders? Is your data locked in isolated silos that hides its value and potential?

The business landscape is littered with cautionary tales of companies that failed due to a lack of investment in technology. And if you answered yes to more than two of the questions above, you could very well end up on that list.

A lot of companies fail to invest adequately in new technology, despite knowing the clear ROI it provides. Common reasons holding them back are lack of budget, increase in operational costs, no substantial customer base, fear of wasting money on the wrong technology applications and being unsure of the tangible benefits of moving to the cloud.

Cloud is solving the paralysing technology challenge

Among the many lessons the pandemic has taught businesses, the biggest one is that only those who have the ability to rapidly adapt and respond to unplanned disruptions can survive the market. In other words, it prompted the need for digital transformation. And moving to the cloud is at the heart of this transformation.

Here's the good news! According to a 2021 survey by Gartner, 48 percent of companies investing in technologies say they are looking at investing in cloud computing.

Businesses are now hustling to replace their legacy, on-premise infrastructure with a scalable, economical and agile infrastructure over the cloud. But why so? From decreased IT expenses, secure infrastructure, business agility, speeding up innovation and growth, better support and access for a distributed workforce, increased efficiency in operations and management, moving to the cloud is the best decision a company can take today.

After all, with all these added benefits, who wouldn’t want to move to the Cloud? Well, the answer to this is more complex than it sounds. There's a reason why so many businesses are still hesitant to make the move. Some of the questions keeping them up at night are - Will our data be secure and compliant in the cloud? What about our legacy apps that can’t be moved to the cloud? How do we deal with downtime? Do we have the in-house expertise to feel confident moving to the cloud?

If you've been asking these questions and are looking to navigate a successful migration, there's an easy way out. HPE is on a mission to help businesses combat these challenges and bring trust and enthusiasm into the picture.
