About Us

Dihuni focuses on solving challenges faced in today’s digital transformation journey. There is huge complexity in implementing a successful digital business which requires efficient on-premise and cloud back-end infrastructure, IT and Internet of Things (IoT) data, analytics, Machine/Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digital Applications. In the data center alone, there is physical and virtual infrastructure, multiple operating systems, multiple applications and new and emerging business and technological paradigms such as cloud computing and XaaS. And then there are people, process and technology structure and portfolio that is different from one company to another and often not suitable for digital transformation.  Dihuni can help you overcome these challenges for a smooth transformation to the Digital world.
