Bangalore: A new report by Computacenter, Europe’s leading independent provider of IT infrastructure services outlines the impact of cloud in the datacenter and the planned and unplanned demands from the business.
According to Computacenter, cloud computing will infiltrate every organisation whether it’s with the CIO’s approval or not, so it’s important to know its impacts fully.
The way IT is consumed within the enterprise can be transformed by the benefits of cloud, including cost, flexibility and agility. The challenge for most organisations is maintaining control in the face of the increasing consumerisation of IT, whereby staff use their own IT in preference to corporate devices and applications.
With off-premise options snapping at the heels of the corporate datacenter, IT departments need to ensure their on-premise services meet current and future business needs. And that means lower costs, greater agility and higher availability.
Cloud gains much of its efficiency through very high utilisation, with many cloud services providers’ datacenters running at 50% or higher. In contrast, many enterprises run their datacenters at 10% utilisation or less.
Computacenter’s expert report will help organisations drive outcomes in virtualisation, automation and the pathway to cloud.
