Multiple industries are embarking on a massive effort known as digital transformation. According to ESG’s recent research on IT spending intentions, 86% of IT decision makers agree with the statement, “If we do not embrace digital transformation, we will be a less competitive and/or effective organization.”
As businesses work to improve their competitiveness, their data volumes increase enough to strain IT operations. In addition, new digital initiatives such as analytics not only add to the data challenges, but also may siphon resources away from infrastructure management and support.
IBM, a leader in data center and cloud infrastructure services, recently announced the FlashSystem 9100, an NVMe (nonvolatile memory express)-based all-flash array with integrated infrastructure virtualization capabilities. It is a system that delivers the performance required by the most data-demanding workloads, that integrates public cloud services as part of a larger multi-cloud infrastructure, and that in general, breathes new life into an existing IT infrastructure.
