What issues does IT face today? Rolling out new IT services takes too long Just 29% of business users consider IT to be distributed, agile, & flexible 2013 Inefficient IT leads to difficulty supporting the business 28% Invest 48% Maintain 24% Replace/Expand existing Manual and disconnected processes impact service quality Up to 75% of downtime is caused by human error Source: InformationWeek survey of IT perception, October 2012. Forrester Research, Inc., Forrsights Budgets & Priorities Tracker Survey April, 2013. The causes & costs of data center system downtime – Advisory Board Q&A, June 2011
What else is driving convergence? 25X 80% Cloud 80% of cloud initiatives will be private and hybrid by 2014 2013 68% Data center traffic Operating costs 25X more bandwidth (I/O) per rack needed by 2015 In 2012, 68% of server-related spend was on management 240 BYOD, mobility & VDI Smartphone users work an average of 240 hours more per year 80% Virtualization 80% server virtualization by 2016
Convergence is a mixed message Is this flexibility & choice? Many providers taking a “one size fits all” approach 2013
Datacenter Transformation – the Optimized Enterprise Delivering innovation and value at any scale Operational Efficiency The new proprietaries Costly solutions where operational savings are consumed by high costs with a lock-in penalty $ Operational costs $$$ Capital costs Legacy systems Complex, monolithic systems that lock in and don’t scale Price/Performance 2013 The Optimized Enterprise Breakthrough performance and efficiency Increased agility Greater scalability Operational costs $ $ Capital costs Commodity systems and services $$$ $$$ Capital costs Operational costs Low-cost commodity components with no solutions value-add $$$ Operational costs $ Capital costs
