Data Center Transformation: Key Elements to Consider
CIOs best begin considering data center transformation, because it's a strategy that won't take place overnight.
Data center transformation is considered one of six ways for IT budget planners to support business growth, reports BusinessWeek. Converged infrastructures accelerate the transition from the traditional siloed approach to IP storage and help build a cloud-ready infrastructure.
Data center transformation isn't expected to become a mainstream fixture until 2013, according to industry analyst Ian Brown from Ovum. While a lack of mature technology and cost of migration are currently holding the trend back, Brown fully expects data center transformation to be one of the four dominant trends of the managed service landscape over the course of the next five years, PC World reports.
