The modern IT era has changed everything again. Yet, this time is different. Agile development, cloud computing, rogue IT, big data and automation have created an entirely new set of challenges and rules for today’s IT organization.
The majority of IT organizations now report to operations and finance rather than to the CEO, demanding new levels of financial scrutiny and budget predictability. Now, IT must be the keepers of corporate standards and controls, while delivering competitively priced services within shorter timeframes.
For the first time ever IT has a new opportunity to directly connect with customers. The emergence of DevOps has moved development and IT organizations into a close partnership with shared goals and measurements. It is no longer acceptable to just “throw code over the wall” and force the operations team to work through it. Even the very nature of the data center has changed, whether it is high density computing, platform as a service or the public cloud. The four walls of the data center are no longer physically a facility, which means the opportunity for IT has never been greater, nor has the associated risk.
We specialize in developing data center environments that optimize application and service delivery, drive operational efficiencies and develop next generation data center (NGDC) capabilities.
