Balance your investment in new and existing systems

Support your existing infrastructure while bringing on new technologies

Infrastructure is the foundation of your operations, making it difficult to make large-scale changes. Many organizations are struggling with the pressure to adopt cloud-native architectures while maintaining existing conventional systems. A virtualized infrastructure can connect your new and old systems.

This IDC paper examines some of the challenges/opportunities of IT modernization, including:

  • Hardware standardization
  • Virtualization and private cloud infrastructure software standardization
  • Application portability
  • Storage standardization

Organizations need to embrace change to balance the needs of existing infrastructure and services while enabling agile app delivery.
