Before your infrastructure reaches its breaking point, this Data Center Knowledge article suggests that CIOs consider investing in data center transformation. For example, technologies such as virtualization often result in reduced real estate requirements and energy needs, lowering operational costs across the organization.
“Within the data center, servers, storage and networks proliferate as lines of business are added and as new business services are provided. In turn, your data center’s infrastructure steadily grows more complex. Ultimately, you may be managing multiple, redundant data centers and infrastructure, creating operational inefficiencies and dragging down essential applications. Mergers or acquisitions only add a layer of complexity. Initiatives such as consolidation and virtualization will help mitigate risk and eliminate redundancy as you handle data across disparate and complex environments.”
