Software Defined Digital Platform (SD-DP)

Enabling your customers’ Digital Transformation (DX) journeys

Exponential-e can take care of your customers’ legacy IT burdens, releasing the people and skills they need to focus on the execution of their Digital Transformation projects.

Executive Summary

Over the past three years, Exponential-e has worked on more than 60 major Digital Transformation (DX) programmes. We have defined, tested and proven a world-leading DX model that can lead the way in supporting your end-users’ Digital Transformation journeys.

We call this our DX Blueprint, and have delivered it across many major sectors including Legal, Financial Services, Media, Retail, Construction, Housing and Charities, and many more.

Our Blueprint is built around a collaborative partnership. As part of your customers' DX team, we’ll work together to deliver two crucial aspects of their DX strategy:


Removing the burden of maintaining and supporting legacy systems (including processes, system health and maintenance)

This ensures your customers' success by releasing key personnel and IT skills to focus entirely on the implementation of new systems, and to make the cultural changes necessary to successfully deliver the outcomes of their stated DX strategy.

Advising upon all technology needs and requirements to deliver the requisite ‘underlay’ infrastructure. This is our Software Defined Digital Platform – which we call our 'DX Toolbox’ (See below)

These needs will range from Hybrid Cloud and Hyper Converged Infrastructure, Software-Defined Networks and Data Centres, and Citrix Cloud and VDI solutions, to GPU Cloud servers, ultra-low cost petabyte storage capacities and support for a multitude of managed services and software applications. We can also manage other areas of risk such as corporate security, business continuity and regulatory compliance.
10% DX / 90% Legacy Systems
25% Help Desk / 10% User Management / 15% Infrastructure Management / 15% Application Management / 10% Supplier Management
65% DX / 35% Legacy Systems

David Wang, Senior Consultant with ITCom Global LLC defines the Software Defined Digital Platform as:

"The Software Defined Digital Platform is made of core and edge computing & applications, SD-WAN bonded and virtualization powered networking, and service chaining security solutions. Together they forge an integrated, intelligent, agile, secured, and cost-effective Digital Transformation (DX) stack for modern enterprises and institutions."

Exponential-e's Digital Platform is exactly that - and more. (See our DX Toolbox below) With your customers' DX team and strategy in place, complemented by our resilient SD-DP infrastructure and skilled engineering team, we confront the challenges and issues of their DX strategy together to deliver a successful outcome.
