Competing in the Idea Economy Requires Data Center Transformation

By Shane Garrett |   Nov 06, 2018

The idea economy (a term coined by HPE) represents a new paradigm, where a company (of any size) can add value and disrupt the market faster than ever—thanks to the advancement of the public cloud, mobile devices, social media, and big data analytics. Transforming your data center into an agile, hyper-connected enterprise IT environment that can handle the challenges of the idea economy will require some investment. But that investment is probably less than you might think and there are multiple ways to approach financing that won’t break the bank.

What the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Can Mean to Your Company

By Shane Garrett |   May 03, 2018

Goldman Sachs describes the Nutanix software-driven enterprise cloud as a “once-in-a-decade infrastructure story.” Goldman Sachs does not toss out lofty acknowledgements like that haphazardly. Their research shows that companies are moving to hyperconverged systems to escape the legacy silo dominated IT infrastructure of yesteryear that is holding them back in a dynamic digital world.

This is further substantiated by Gartner, who recently recognized Nutanix as a leader in its magic quadrant for Hyperconverged Infrastructure.

Custom IT Solutions: Is the Age of Off-the-Shelf Software & Hardware Over?

By Shane Garrett |   Apr 21, 2016

IT strategies are known to evolve at a rapid pace, and over the years we’ve witnessed a handful of megatrends. Once there were mainly centralized mainframes, where every application including bookkeeping and payroll were customized and home-grown. Then there were distributed Windows-based client-server systems running mostly commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software with only industry-specific business process logic written in-house. Next we saw highly virtualized servers running multiple OSs, and finally we landed in the current era of the Cloud, mobility, and consumerization – where software and infrastructure can be offered on a subscription basis “as a service,” and there’s an app for… everything.
