Future proof your investment strategy for data center and cloud
Today’s organizations are under more pressure than ever to innovate fast and offer a superior experience to every customer. Nimble, digitally enabled competitors can bring new applications to market in record time, over the cloud and on mobile devices. As barriers to entry fall and time to market accelerates, organizations are fundamentally changing their operating models. They are looking to explore opportunities in new areas of business, as well as unlock more value from their current core business. And they are seeking to build digital capabilities deep into their business processes and foundation, as well as their data infrastructure.
These new business imperatives are driving IT to become more strategic . But they may be hampered by complex environments, siloed architectures, and slow, manual processes . Their existing teams may lack the skills and knowledge to support changing demands and technologies . Many are also struggling to smoothly integrate their existing on-premises systems and processes that they have accumulated over the years, without having to rip and replace key parts of their infrastructure . By embracing a modernized data center, IT and their business constituents can overcome these challenges and position themselves to deliver the speed and innovation that are essential for businesses in the digital economy.
In this white paper, we’ll explore the advantages that a modernized data center can bring for IT organizations seeking to keep pace in a dynamic environment. We’ll talk about challenges that are holding back business and IT, and discuss how a software- defined approach can help them move forward. And we’ll present examples showing how VMware solutions can enable IT teams to develop a future-proof strategy to build a foundation that is ready for change—from cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid environments, to global expansion, customer acquisitions, and beyond.
