DELIVIRING ENTERPRISE DX: Multicloud Infrastructure for The Digital Era
IDC has predicted that by 2018 more than 60% of enterprise IT organizations will have committed to multi-cloud architectures, driving up the rate and pace of change in IT organizations. Digital transformation in business is the driver for multi-cloud and is raising user expectations of IT. It is now expected to offer services and capabilities that span business functions and roles, and demand a variability in IT resources which is very different to that of legacy, dedicated IT.In 2017, a cloud-first approach will become the most common adoption choice in APEJ, with the resulting deployment of private cloud and hybrid private cloud frameworks within a multi-cloud architecture boosting spending on cloud ahead of traditional, dedicated IT. As increasing amounts of enterprise workloads and new digital initiatives are built using cloud platforms and services, it becomes vital that we think about a very robust enterprise service delivery fabric that offers• immense scalability, flexibility and capacity to manage all the machine and human interactions• security at the highest level to proactively deal with the rising cyber threats• immense flexibility in resources to redeploy fast and gain first mover advantage
In other words, all workloads have to be dealt with as being mission critical, and the characteristics that were once limited to enterprise-grade, on-premises IT, will become the standard characteristic of cloud environments. This means that cloud-based services and platforms will be built with different DNA - using hardware, software and services in new ways in order to reshape traditional IT's rigidity, tardiness and limited scale.
This scenario brings a revolution spanning the all cloud infrastructure categories:Hardware: Faster processors, more memory and hyperconverged systems that are modular, self-heading and immensely scalable will be a key building blocks of the next generation cloud. Object storage will enable new storage architectures, and networks will become nimbler and faster.Software: Software will benefit from two major innovations - one that helps systems automate and reorganise to the dynamic environments of the business and another in applications that are better able to leverage the cloud architectures. Composable application architectures based on exposed APIs becomes the new app development methodology. Data analytics will be critical across a huge spectrum of applications - from securing and maintaining systems that help business, all the way to learning from humans and machines to innovate faster. Services: The traditional IT services catalogue will be transformed to integrate with business processes, and the inclusion of new KPIs that will help deliver a more business centric IT will be the key mandate going forward.CIOs need to plan their IT strategy well in advance to continue the cloud journey. But before starting, IT leaders need to have an appropriate enterprise infrastructure strategy and architecture in place which has cloud, software defined networks and storage, integrated infrastructure and security as the core elements. The right combination of these elements will determine the ability of the CIO organization to drive transformation for a mobile intensive, data driven, competitive business environment.
