Application owners are facing a critical challenge – in order to meet the demands of innovation-hungry customers, IT leaders must quickly evaluate whether to re-architect their applications for the cloud, or develop new applications entirely.
As enterprises continue to find their way in this digital era, the function of the IT organization is changing to take on a leadership role in digital transformation. As a result, technology investment decisions are now driven by strategic vision as well as tactical goals.
How resilient is your organization from an IT perspective? The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines resilience as, “an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change.” With the digital transformations of so many companies today, resiliency to change and disruption needs to be a priority. What does resilience mean for the enterprise today? It means having the ability to seamlessly adapt to change while enduring and responding to unplanned events such as:
Last week, we covered a checklist of core requirements needed to prepare for multicloud storage deployments. This included internal operations and capabilities needed, as well as important questions to ask during the process.
Last week, we published the second blog in this series, “Overcoming the Top 10 Multicloud Challenges.” We looked at 10 things organizations have dealt with, as well as misconceptions that exist surrounding multicloud. This week we are looking at seven tips all IT professionals should take advantage of to truly experience multicloud success.
Have you found an answer to the big question circling across the IT world—How can we create a cloud-like delivery model for our users? The answer is within “digital transformation,” which focuses on efficiently leveraging cloud computing and software defined capabilities (among many other next-gen tech solutions) to be more flexible, agile, and scalable to meet business needs quickly. There are also many opportunities being created within areas like machine learning and IoT that can skyrocket your company's ability to innovate. In order to achieve these things, a flexible and reliable IT infrastructure is a must. Deploying a multicloud strategy creates that reliability while also adding a sophisticated degree of versatility.
Software as a service and many other digital business models have never been the same since the possibility of leveraging hybrid IT. Thanks to it, an organization can deliver services in a more optimized, balanced, automated, granular, and flexible fashion.
As we discussed in our white paper, “Augmenting and Enhancing Your Existing Network with a Hybrid Cloud,” there are many advantages of a hybrid cloud model such as greater levels of redundancy and elasticity. To acquire the advantages that a hybrid cloud offers requires a lot of planning and preparation. We have compiled a comprehensive checklist to aid you in the preparation of your deployment.
Today’s IT leaders are at a crossroads. Behind them, there’s a long legacy of hardware and software deployment decisions that have served the business well for years. But new business requirements and application development methods have begun to test the status quo, and as they seek to modernize, they will face several difficult decisions. IT leaders can either commit to the cloud, go all in with on-premises infrastructure or evaluate something entirely new.
Hybrid IT and flash storage are an impressive match. With hybrid IT’s structure combining a mixture of on and off premise resources, it delivers services in a more optimized, balanced and automated fashion, while flash storage has the ability to offer agility and impressive backup and disaster recovery capabilities. The two together can provide:
