In order to start the year, CONTEXT has asked senior executives from across the Channel globally to state their predictions for 2018. Today’s post is by Ralf Jordan, Head of Distribution in EMEA for Dell
In 2018 the world will take another step forward in its Digital Transformation. The IT industry will continue to play a pivotal role helping organisations reinvent themselves to realise their digital future. We see three transformations underpinning this – IT; Workforce; and Security. IT centres on helping customers modernise their infrastructure; Workforce focuses on connecting people anytime, anywhere; and Security aims to protect organisations from the one million cyber attacks every day. 2018 can be the year of change and with change comes rich opportunities as industries are transformed, human progress is accelerated and lives are changed.

My personal ‘New Year resolution’ is to ‘Learn something new every single day of the Year’. I subscribed to a couple of industry and non-industry newsletters and Vlogs and will dedicate at least five minutes a day on something new. The willingness and ability to learn is in my mind the most critical success factor to succeed not only in our IT industry but in life in general.
