What’s New in Technology 2008

Message from the Sponsor:

The role of the data center is changing. And with it, the need for a new architectural methodology has developed. No longer can IT only be seen as an area for cost cutting or process improvement. The need to

leverage technology to create a competitive edge in the marketplace, open new markets, expand existing markets, and enable business innovation has never been in the forefront of expectations from CIOs and CEOs like today. In fact, in CIO Magazine’s State of the

CIO survey for 2008, 73% of respondents believe that IT should proactively envision business possibilities and initiate with technology. This is a paradigm shift in which innovation and business development came from non-technical business owners.

In preparing for the new architectural methodology one must always be reminded of the single constant present in today’s business climate, change is inevitable. Ten years ago it would be hard to imagine that e-mail systems would be considered business critical applications that would require real-time business continuity. The proliferation of the internet has created an “always available” expectation from external customers and internal users.

The primary challenge of deploying a new infrastructure is having a true understanding of business goals and direction. So, many IT organizations are left reacting to changes in business demands and never have the time to strategically plan a comprehensive strategy for their infrastructure. This is why the need for IT and business to align and share common goals and strategies has never been more important.
