How Composable Infrastructure can fuel Breakthrough Business Innovation and Performance
“IT leaders desperately need to innovate their infrastructure and operations practices to remain competitive in the age of the customer. While public cloud offers benefits of speed and scale, leaders recognise that the “one-size-fits-all” approach does not always work — many adopt and execute hybrid IT strategies as a result.”
“In September 2017, HPE commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of hybrid IT models. Forrester conducted an online survey with 562 IT decision makers across the globe who are leading their firms through digital transformation efforts to explore the technologies used, challenges experienced, and benefits gained from their hybrid IT models. We found that when hybrid IT is built by accident — and not by design — it can inhibit digital transformation efforts. Other firms adopted both continuous delivery release automation and local composable infrastructure (i.e., software-defined infrastructure where models are managed as code and have granular composability with atomic selection down to CPU and memory assignment). These firms were more likely to mitigate challenges and were in a better position to empower their organization to win, serve, and retain customers.”
