Managing an Efficient Virtual Data Centre Environment

Many hypes in IT are just the same old idea, tried again, but with better technology and under a new name. The Data Center is dead, long live the Virtual Data Center? The danger of this is that we treat the Virtual Data center just like a new type of infrastructure and simply rehost our existing applications from physical to virtual machines (P2V), just as we rehosted them from Mainframes to Mini’s in the days of downsizing. But if we only rehost we will miss out big time on the potential benefits of virtualization: which are not just cost and energy reductions, but also business and IT agility, management efficiency, market responsiveness and service improvements. Not to mention that – again just with downsizing (the rumors of the mainframes death were highly exaggerated) - we now see virtualization efforts stall at around the 30% mark.

Hear how a virtualization maturity based approach can help overcome these hurdles and allow you to reap the true benefits.

    Digital transformation has now become an important strategic choice for business and governments to deliver secure and fit for purpose solutions fast. Implementation methodologies like Agile and DevOps are tools in this transformational tool kit. You and your team’s creativity and innovation underpin success, and quality data is the currency that will create trust and unlock delighted customer and citizenry experiences, delivered quickly.

    Speed of implementation, ability to pivot and delivery resilience of the teams and the delivery environment have become foundational to how we need to approach delivery. Without a robust delivery chain in the SaaS implementation, you will be vulnerable - it is just a matter of time before the rainy day turns into a perfect storm. Data, data sovereignty and increasing awareness of privacy and social contracting is vital to create trust, and to keep it. SaaS vendors need to be able to respond regardless of set ideas, their economies of scale plans may have to be thought of from a geo-social perspective now also, not just a one-sided business argument. Customers and users vote with clicks and their feet. Ensure you are the on the receiving end of the shopping cart.
