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 center (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 center capacity to support emerging technology workloads, they retain aging 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.

Going Beyond Traditional Data Integration to Achieve Business Agility

Providing business users with the data they need to make effective decisions has always been difficult. Increasing data volumes, varieties of data and heterogeneous data stores are not making this task any easier. For the past two decades, the solution to accessing disparate data has been to consolidate the data into a data warehouse, and provide users with tools to access and analyze this consolidated data.

However, growing demand to access data not managed by the data warehouse, coupled with the need to access current data for more agile d ...

Protect and Optimize Containerized Apps

Container platforms such as Kubernetes and RedHat OpenShift combine with agile development methodologies to speed up application development and deployment. By allowing developers to break applications up into smaller components (also known as microservices), containers can help reduce dependencies, allow component-level scaling, and encourage rapid release lifecycles.

However, containerized apps can still be exposed to application-layer vulnerabilities, denial-of-service attacks, and the impacts of client-side network latency. This means th ...
