Expanding NonStop Opportunities

Options to Expand NonStop Opportunities

As we all know, business is becoming increasingly technology-based. With this, enterprises need to deliver new digital services and be better at business innovation on an ongoing basis to continue being relevant and to expand their opportunities. This is fundamental to delivering value, growth, creating wealth, etc. – which is very important to Customers and stakeholders.

Fortunately, by design, NonStop is well suited to enabling organizations successfully address increasingly demanding needs – to improve outcomes and have a future going forward.

In this context, there are multiple ways to increase NonStop relevance –

1. To satisfy very demanding and important business needs

        • With NonStop the platform of choice for on-line, real-time, all-the-time information services (with 7 9’s or high availability from the date the application goes live).

2. To support a “ Cloud Strategy “

        • With NonStop providing more options to have a cloud environment – for internal and external as well as small to very large deployments, plus it’s important to have a high degree of control over the data, operations, costs, etc.

3. Technology Life Cycle Selling

        • Announcing new technology and end of life for current technology. While the primary method by upgrading installed systems, compared to the other options, this is the least value scenario.

4. Being a  Strategic Solution Partner

        • With services and a platform that enables an organization to meaningfully improve business outcomes (ie: NonStop – with a new application, for new initiatives with AI, ML, IoT, Security, Mobile, Big Data, Sustainability, etc.), and to make Business Innovation more rewarding.

5. Being Entrepreneurial

        • Contacting organizations to improve outcomes with NonStop based on their plans.
