Business IT is being dragged down by the weight of the ‘old’. Whether it is outdated assumptions, virtualisation platforms designed for consolidation not agility, or simply neophobia, this isn’t just disruption, it’s a death-grip. Losing the weight requires fundamental change.
Building a platform that can meet today’s requirements for speed, scalability and agility is a complex matter. You could build on what you already have in place, or put in a new platform architecture, perhaps one based on Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI). But as well as finding a solution that meets your application needs, there are other matters to consider.
