Statistics like these show that the basic silo model of IT no longer serves its purpose. New ‘cloud’ technology, social networking and mobility, everything-as-a-service is putting the user in charge. IT needs to be delivering essential business applications such as business intelligence in a flexible, on-demand way that give their organisations advantage in their markets. Organisations need IT to be proactive, available and flexible – something they see is being offered by large public cloud providers. The new business expectation means IT needs transform itself to be business aligned if it is to meet the future challenges . The Logicalis Agile Data Centre delivers the business-aligned, proactive and flexible IT organisations demand balancing traditional platforms, private cloud and hybrid cloud capability. Logicalis has mapped out the journey from Basic IT to an Agile Data Centre into 4 steps that each deliver real business benefits at each step.
