Click through for new roles that are emerging due to the changing nature of network infrastructure, as identified by Plexxi.
IT infrastructure is changing. According to IDC, by 2020, more than 30 percent of IT vendors will not exist as we know them today. Why? The next wave of industry transition and growth will involve a rapid movement from third-party applications to cloud IT delivery models. Emerging cloud environments with highly converged storage and compute (virtualized compute and software-defined storage) and dynamic run-time defined workloads will force IT architectures to become more agile and dynamic. Siloed and monolithic approaches to delivering storage, compute and network resources will be replaced by integrated and elastic infrastructure and services consumption models. The next generation of cloud-based architecture will enable rapid scaling of storage and compute, and will be agile, automated and programmable.
The newfound emphasis on tools and service integration is shaping a new crop of industry professionals — the actual faces behind the IT infrastructure. These individuals keep the lights on behind the scenes and ensure their organizations remain competitive by keeping pace with the constant stream of changes in their industry.
In this slideshow, Plexxi has identified new roles that are emerging to meet the changing landscape of IT.
