Why Faster Refresh Cycles and Modern Infrastructure Management Are Critical To Business Success

Thumb original forrester why faster refresh cycles and modern infrastructure management are critical to business success en

Pursuing business agility to truly impact business transformation requires embracing IT as a core competency. Having the most up-to-date IT infrastructure to support the scale and complexity of a changing application landscape is crucial to this. Companies must champion this imperative by refreshing server infrastructure, adopting software-defined data centre (SDDC) principles, and modernizing their IT management processes. Those that do will propel business innovation and deliver superior customer experiences with fast, secure, reliable business technology.

In December 2018, Dell EMC commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the business value of refreshing servers and infrastructure in enterprise IT departments. Forrester conducted an online survey with 508 IT infrastructure technology decision-makers at companies with 100 or more employees in seven countries to explore this topic. We found that although companies are adding data centre capacity to support emerging technology workloads, they retain ageing servers for longer than they should. We also found that while most organizations have an SDDC strategy, they have made minimal progress. This results in applications that underperform against business needs and infrastructure that hinders the agility of both IT and the business. On the contrary, investing in modern servers yields many business and technical benefits, especially for the organizations that have embraced modernized IT as a core competency.

But despite the promise of cost savings, business agility, and employee flexibility, leadership inertia and fears thwarted most widespread attempts at this paradigm shift.

Would employees stay on task outside a physical office space? Would company culture survive? As we’ve come to see, these fears—while understandable—were unwarranted.

Navigating the Disruption of Work - The 5 major Accelerations Happening Right Now

One of the many shocking things about a pandemic is how quickly the unimaginable becomes the inevitable.

In less than 72 hours, even the world’s most traditional companies transitioned from office-based to working from home. Everyone could see that the word “work” was about to be redefined.

The transition was head-spinning. In those first hours, days and weeks, companies across every industry stepped through what looked like a playbook (if only a pandemic playbook existed).

They moved, in sequence, from “keeping the lights on” to imagi ...
