The Future of Enterprise Data Centers — What’s Next

Gartner Logo

According to Gartner, “Traditional on-premises data center models must evolve to play a role in modern enterprise information management.”

In other words, the evolution of enterprise data centers has permanently changed the role of IT. At one time, IT's primary role was to protect an organization through a controlled, logical set of processes.

Now, businesses want rapid access to a vast range of new technologies and services. Hybrid IT is the new normal. Business-driven infrastructures are now simplified and standardized.

With changes like these, IT leaders face a dueling set of responsibilities, ranging from “keep the lights on” to react and adapt to new technologies and services.

By downloading this Gartner report – The Future of Enterprise Data Centers – What’s Next (Henrique Cecci, April 24, 2019), we believe you will learn the strategic and actionable recommendations from Gartner.
