Data Center Tipping Point


  • Introduction
  • The IT Transformation
  • The Move to a Virtualized, and Now Automated, Environment


As IT organizations continue to balance rising resource demands versus constraints on data center space and budgets, they’re being forced to do more with less. To cope, IT departments are aiming to squeeze efficiencies out of existing infrastructure by betting heavily on consolidation, virtualization and new hardware. While upgrading and virtualizing is all the rage, IT departments are still supporting legacy applications that drive value and store critical data, leading to heterogeneous IT environments.

This consolidation means that the automation of manual processes is becoming a critical focus for IT organizations as they look to provide users with more capabilities, for example, around the provisioning of systems. As a result, job scheduling and workload automation solutions are moving to the center of integrating both IT and business application processes with the integration of newer virtualized systems, all the while conserving resources, reducing costs and streamlining IT operations.
