Only 43% of business leaders consider IT integral to the business. Why is this the case? Bottomline – reducing costs is just not enough. Business leaders not only want greater agility, but they also want to have greater control to use technology to solve their business challenges. They want to build new applications. They want to analyze data. They want a faster way to consume IT services.
EMC and VMware have made great strides in their “Journey to the Cloud” IT transformation framework. This framework has provided a blueprint for IT organizations that saw the benefits of commodity public clouds and wanted that value for business applications.
The first two phases of the framework (Consolidate, Virtualize Mission-Critical Applications) helped move IT organizations from 25% to 60%+ virtualized, significantly reducing costs for both infrastructure and application licensing. It laid the foundation for integrated IT organizations by enabling converged infrastructure and multiple points of automation.
Now more than ever, it’s time to deliver on the Journey to Hybrid Cloud. It’s time to bring the power of automated, on-demand, self-service capabilities within IT’s grasp and begin to accelerate the business.
