When delving into the minds of conglomerates, one major technique that they will inevitably fall back on is diversification. By expanding their reach by forming subsidiaries to enter various businesses, they can reduce investment risk. A subsidiary's earnings loss can be offset by the profit of another. However, this increases the danger of higher operational costs and incapacity to sustain performance efficiency.
Throughout AVM Cloud's 13 years of service in this market, we have encountered numerous challenges faced by conglomerates such as data security, business continuity, IT infrastructure rigidity, operational costs, and many more. Let's delve deeper into these issues and explore how we may contribute to their resolution.
Conglomerates Digital Transformation Challenges
- Difficulties to Stay Compliant with Regulations
Having subsidiaries in multiple industries and jurisdictions necessitates maintaining compliance with a wide range of regulations and standards. Conglomerates have to put much effort into meeting regulatory requirements especially in the IT Infrastructure category. Failure to comply will be detrimental to the businesses as a whole.

Conglomerates typically operate across multiple industries and have diverse businesses units. Managing and coordinating such a complex network of operations can be costly due to the need for specialized management teams, communication systems, and coordination efforts
- Lack of Flexibility in IT Infrastructure
[Leading to Increase in Turn Around Time (TAT)]
In the huge IT Environment of a Conglomerate, it is typical to find issues where operational and strategic decisions could not keep up with the pace of evolution and growth of the virtual infrastructure. To meet the growing needs, a dynamic, scalable and flexible IT Infrastrucuture is imperative.
