Digital Realty and HPE: Are You AI and Data Ready?

Tony Bishop, Senior Vice President, Platform & Solutions

As a proud platinum sponsor of Gartner’s 2023 IOCS Conference, Digital Realty appreciates connecting with our partners, clients, and peers while focusing on how the platform revolution can accelerate value for tomorrow’s organizations. Thanks for helping us make it another memorable and productive event.

With $100 trillion in unrealized opportunities in oil and gas, logistics, healthcare, retail, and more1, now is the time to bolster efforts to grow and scale from a digital economy into a data economy. A recent survey reveals that most C-level executives across nine industries in twenty-three countries revealed that the data economy is driving their business agendas. For example:

  • 76% plan to use data to improve customer experience and build new digital products
  • 72% plan to add new business locations in the next two years
  • 78% maintain local copies of customer data for business and compliance purposes
  • 77% identified data latency-specific performance requirements2

However, the data gravity generated by this growth requires a new architecture, one that inverts the traditional structure and brings users and clouds to the data.3 This distributed, data-centric, and hybrid architecture places data exchange centers as distributed points of presence.
