What a fantastic WPC 2016 OCSL is having. For the 5th year running we have been recognised by Microsoft and HPE as Frontline Partner of the Year.  This year OCSL came top in the Cloud Platform category for EMEA.  On that note, it will come as no surprise that Cloud and Digital Transformation are two of the hottest topics at WPC this year.

At the recent OCSL & HPE Executive Dinner we asked UK executives what digital transformation looked like in their own organisations.
