No matter how many technology disruptors businesses have adapted to in the past, we know more are on the horizon. Today’s successful IT leaders have skillfully handled the evolution from mainframes to PCs to cloud; from desktop devices to laptops to tablets and smartphones; from shared drives to collaboration tools; from “800” numbers to omni-channel support; from static Web sites to sophisticated customer and employee portals. But even those leaders will have to do more in the future to ensure their organizations are prepared for the next generation of disruptors. The truth is, in the future, IT will be less about tackling each disruptor as it appears, and more about establishing a flexible, “change-resilient” organization. That means investing in infrastructure, operations, and even technical skills that are adaptable—enabling you to “hit the ground running” when tomorrow’s disruptors hit.
In this paper, Stratecast discusses the technologies that are disrupting how business is conducted— and how they impact and are impacted by your data center infrastructure. We define the ideal IT environment, and present ways to achieve it with flexible, composable infrastructure.
