The ability to make dynamic, adaptive infrastructure part of your reality all the time is here, as we are officially within the era of data center 2.0, characterized by Agile as the new standard, continuous integration/DevOps, virtualization/containerization and cloud infrastructures.
Thanks to advances in emerging technology, intelligent automation, cloud and AI, we can remove the blockers that often impede innovation — time, money, bandwidth and mindshare — and free our teams to reach new levels of ingenuity. When we embrace Infrastructure as Code as an approach and a strategy, we immediately turbocharge our path to innovation.
This panel discussion will explore 3 key components in building your framework:
1. Leverage Disruptive Tech: Move away from hard-wired, heavy metal systems and take advantage of a wealth of opportunities that exist in the 2.0 paradigm, from virtualization to containerization to cloud infrastructure to biz DevSecOps
2. Reimagine Infrastructure: Our definition around infrastructure needs to shift, particularly with the surge of emerging technologies like IoT, robotics, wearables and embedded systems.
3. Create a Data-driven Culture: To best understand your infrastructure, you need to cultivate a truly data-driven culture, taking advantage of the latest innovations in big data, AI and ML to accelerate impact.
