Consumer industries are facing once in a lifetime changes in the way they engage and interact with their customers and consumers. Whether consumer products, retail, or wholesale, there are two broadly unifying trends. First, consumers have both heightened influence and increased expectations. Second, several largely untapped digital technologies have the potential to enable new capabilities to better satisfy customer needs. For the key consumer industries of agribusiness, consumer products, life sciences, retail, and wholesale, the Internet of Things (IoT) will enable many new opportunities. These industries have a shared goal and challenge: to be able to create and offer engaging end consumer and/or customer experiences at scale. Part of the way that companies will achieve this goal and respond to this challenge is by developing digital transformation (DX) strategies. Such strategies enable new and potentially disruptive capabilities with a broad range of technologies.

The data-driven organization is the new benchmark for success. Firms that harness data to dictate strategic and tactical decisions companywide make more informed business plans, better optimize operations, improve customer interactions, and provide competitive edge. To achieve these benefits, organizations increasingly see data refinement - transforming raw data from various sources into relevant and actionable information and delivering it through self - service access to any user who needs it - as the path toward success by helping break though immature processes and legacy systems. However, data refinement only functions as well as the strategies and approaches behind it. Organizations that do not understand the right way to embrace refinement will fail to catch up to competitors that have mastered the correct approach.

This paper examines that there are all sorts of elements—differing applications, attitudes, budgets, outcomes for the business—that go into the decision of how much and what type of solid-state storage to use. And how this large range of use cases inherently means that users are going to need a portfolio of solid-state deployment options because no single product is going to solve everything for everyone. The paper then examines NetApp’s flash portfolio and belief that the right storage solution at all times balances performance, capacity, functionality and manageability: this means that for flash too, multiple approaches will become the standard for enterprises as they evolve their long-term IT strategies.

Agile and innovative companies like Netflix, Instagram, Amazon, Airbnb, and Uber have used exponential technologies to completely disrupt their industries. But some of the largest industries in the world have fallen prey to these and other disruptive companies. And most of them didn’t even see it coming.
