Why It's Time for Next-Gen Infrastructure Services
There’s not a day that goes by without opinions, features and advertising in industry media about the “consumerization” of IT, BYOD, next-gen services, big data and the anytime-anywhere workplace. It’s a sign of the times — the next evolution of enterprise technology is developing to meet the needs of this data-demanding, 24x7 connected era.
It’s a trend that not only drives the behaviors of your markets but also affects the way your employees see you as an employer. Enterprises are faced with the demands of two types of consumers — those that buy and use your products and services, and those that rely on dynamic technology from you to do their job well, feel engaged and able to collaborate with colleagues both locally and around the world.
Your consumers are now in control, and you need to keep this in mind when planning your IT strategy and budgets. It’s now quite possible that the CIO doesn’t hold all the technology cards: As IT systems become the lifeblood of all departments, marketing, HR, finance and others all need faster, more intuitive tools to ensure the success of the business.
Embracing new opportunities such as virtualization and “as a service” models will be much easier if they are embedded into your enterprise IT roadmap, with the future in mind and with sustained investment. It’s time to get in shape to be able to adopt new technologies early and realize cost-savings that can be reinvested in next-generation systems.
The technology we are using today was not built for this new era; transformation has become an imperative. CSC has invested in the most critical game-changing infrastructure, working with our partners and focusing on the technology that will accelerate your business and prepare your infrastructure for the next generation.
