IT Silos Start to Crumble

The traditional approach of operating and managing functional silos of compute, network and storage will begin to break down. By breaking down IT silos and creating large shared pools of resources, IT organizations could see improvements in management efficiency and the ability to scale, a reduction in training requirements, and a decrease in operational costs.

Information technology is a key competitive advantage for organizations of all sizes. To be responsive to business requirements, IT needs to be agile and scalable. And, to ensure that IT can adapt to ever-changing business requirements, infrastructure and operational expenses need to be cost-effective to fund and enable innovation. At the same time, IT services are expected to be continuously available and ubiquitously accessible.
