THE DATA CENTRE TRANSFORMATION OPPORTUNITY
Researchers at IDC predict at least half of IT expenditure will be Cloud based by 2018, reaching 60% of ALL IT INFRASTRUCTURE and 60–70% of ALL SOFTWARE, SERVICES and TECHNOLOGY spending by 2020. By then, Gartner expects the global Cloud market to be worth nearly $200BN.
In the pursuit of greater business agility, security, simplicity and scale, such widespread enterprise adoption of virtualisation and cloud technology has led to seismic changes at the heart of enterprise IT.
The traditional concept of the datacentre has been shattered into a hybrid mix of on-premise hardware, multi-cloud services and virtual network functions. Enterprises – and the trusted IT partners that serve them – are struggling to pick up the pieces and make best use of new technology capabilities.
But even though organisations accept that these new technologies unlock huge opportunity, their limited time and resources are under such pressure to provide operational service that they cannot stretch to adequately investigate, test or implement them.
