Watch our 3 minute executive cut and get a glimpse.
Mobility, Big Data, cloud, and social technologies have changed every aspect of the way customers are interacting, relating to their brands, and expecting their digital and physical lives to interact seamlessly as one. The focus on customer experience has already started disrupting traditional business models, and, with the advent of the next IoT generation, this disruption will continue to impact retailers, manufacturers, banking, healthcare, and government services.

Intel is one of the world leaders in computer technology innovation. The company designs and produces key technologies that serve as the basis for computer devices worldwide. Energy consumption and energy efficiency, usually measured as power usage effectiveness (PUE), are undoubtedly among the main challenges for datacenters. Another challenge is the increasingly complicated management of IT infrastructure, with a clear trend toward reducing the part of the IT budget that maintains the operation of the IT infrastructure itself, which currently represents around 70% of the typical total budget. As a consequence of the growing demands on IT departments, resulting from the need to react rapidly and with high flexibility to the requirements of internal customers, customers are implementing the principles, processes, and technologies of private cloud, or using the services of public cloud providers. One of the newest trends is to analyze the wide – and rapidly growing – range of data that has become highly relevant to the main business objectives and scope of some organizations. Intel fulfills the needs of its customers not only with its Intel Xeon processors, but also with its innovative technologies; these are increasingly integrated with the processors themselves, and help to reduce energy consumption even with increasingly higher-performance processors, as well as boosting security.
