Outdated infrastructure doesn’t just cause headaches for IT teams. A failure to update servers, storage and networks can lead to a surprisingly diverse array of issues that reach throughout an enterprise. Development schedules are delayed, product launches are pushed back, customers become frustrated and employees may even leave a company at least in part because of subpar experiences with technology.
Through modernized solutions such as hyperconverged infrastructure, all-flash storage arrays, and private and public cloud resources, organizations can achieve a number of benefits. A modernized IT environment can improve cybersecurity, dramatically reduce maintenance costs and increase revenue, among other positive business outcomes. It can also allow an organization to make better use of IT staff members, moving these professionals from support roles to more strategic projects.
However, IT modernization must be driven by an organization’s specific business goals and should include efforts to standardize, simplify and automate environments. By taking a strategic approach to IT modernization, businesses can maximize the return on their investments and set themselves up for success.
