Ever-ready IT infrastructure
Discover the key considerations to help your IT infrastructure keep pace with the ever-evolving Cloud Continuum.
As the Cloud Continuum evolves, IT departments face more pressure to meet faster transformation deadlines while supporting more complex technology. Companies must evolve how they architect, develop and operate tech infrastructure—including compute, network, workplace and data platforms.
iTRANSFORM Biztech’s Stabilize-Optimize-Transform approach can help enterprises truly reinvent their business with cloud. Other key considerations for companies include building a strong network to meet your Continuum needs and creating the right workplace environment.
How to get started on your modern infrastructure?
Ever-ready infrastructure needs a solid and stable footing on which to build. That’s true whether your goal is unlocking business value and innovation for today or preparing the organization for the Cloud Continuum tomorrow. Either way, enterprises need to evolve away from a capital intensive, hardware-oriented infrastructure discipline to one that is software-defined and intelligent.
iTRANSFORM Biztech uses a stabilize-optimize-transform approach to systematically break down the various barriers that organizations face. The best part? The timing of each step is flexible. So a business can enjoy the benefits of stability and optimization today—then kickstart a transformation at the time of its choosing.
CREATING A MODERN DIGITAL WORKPLACE
The growth of the cloud (or “cloudification”) of the enterprise workplace is accelerating and becoming more complex. As companies still figure out hybrid work, many workers haven’t shared the same physical space with each other for months. Success in the Cloud Continuum isn’t about a new cloud platform. It’s a whole new way of working that empowers people and changes how they work.
Enterprises should focus on three interrelated parts: the human workforce, the physical workspace and the digital workplace.
BUILD FOR THE CLOUD: FIVE STEPS TO MODERN NETWORKS
As IT shifts focus to the Cloud Continuum, enterprise networks risk falling behind. The time to rearchitect is now. Companies that rely on a patchwork approach of making quick fixes to old-school networks end up burdened with security holes and spiraling costs.
A fundamental network upgrade takes more effort, but can deliver instant scalability, fast automation and dramatically better performance. By focusing on cloud solutions, businesses are better positioned to innovate and adapt to future technology options.
UNLOCKING INNOVATION IN HYBRID CLOUD ENVIRONMENTS
Companies need a holistic strategy that embraces the new hybrid Cloud Continuum, spanning public cloud, private cloud and edge computing. In most cases, public cloud alone isn’t enough. So the question isn’t whether to go hybrid, it’s how to successfully manage the transition.
To go hybrid, you need the right strategy, operating model, talent, and tools—plus the transformation roadmap to get there. By nature, hybrid architectures are complex. Businesses that keep them as simple as possible, while planning for innovation, stay secure and agile.
