“Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go

So make the best of this test, and don't ask why

It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time”

– Green Day, “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)”


As graduation season approaches, songs like Green Day’s “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” will be sung by students everywhere reflecting on fond memories and lessons learned in school. Graduation is a symbol of transition and change, and a milestone that represents growth, progress, and transformation. Just as education drives growth in students, digital transformation drives progress in an organization and ultimately innovations in the data center. The overall path of digital transformation leads towards innovation and progress, but not without the ‘lessons learned in time’ from setbacks.


In the spirit of graduation season, we want to know what technology you “graduated” to in 2018. Did you transition to serverless computing, experiment with AI and machine learning, or implement containers, microservices, or blockchain technology? What drove the need to “graduate” to new technology? The C-suite jumping on the AI bandwagon? The need for cost efficiency and agility? As you reflect on the past year, what were your biggest successes and failures during your digital transformation journey?


Let us know what technologies you “graduated” to this past year and any ‘lessons learned’ from your digital transformation successes (or failures) by May 18th and we’ll put 250 THWACK points in your account!
