A New Kind of Enterprise: The Age of Instant Everything
The proliferation of technology has created a world of “Prosumers” where information and devices are mobile, connected, interactive, immediate and fluid. This shift has created challenges and heightened pressure to meet new customer, partner and employee expectations. These constituencies have little patience with businesses and services that can’t respond to their needs — instantly.
In order to enable a nimble business model, the CIO is becoming a service broker who must build and maintain a service delivery channel that provides tangible value to the business. Unfortunately, IT sprawl is stifling IT’s ability to meet the increased pace of business demand. To overcome sprawl and deliver innovation required by the enterprise, CIOs are turning to infrastructure convergence.
A Converged Infrastructure enables an organization to turn technology, people and processes into a competitive advantage. This is achieved by transforming technology silos into adaptive pools of assets that can be shared by many applications and managed as a service.
Putting an End to IT Sprawl and Shadow IT
To compete in the age of “instant everything”, your organization needs an IT infrastructure that enables agile and rapid service delivery while driving out costs. A converged infrastructure allows you to accelerate time to business value. This is achieved by implementing technologies designed for convergence with a systematic approach that transforms information silos into adaptive pools of assets that can be shared by many applications and managed as a service.
A converged infrastructure helps organizations address the growing trends of IT Sprawl and Shadow IT by increasing IT speed and agility, shift resources from operations to innovation and better align with the growing demands of the business.
