IDC Infrastructure Future of Infrastructure

Hybrid Event | Almaty | March 31, 2022



Digital infrastructure spans compute, storage, network, infrastructure software including virtualization and containers and the automation, AI/ML analytics, and security software and cloud services needed to maintain and optimize both legacy and modern applications and data. IDC's 2022 predictions for the future of digital infrastructure identify critical shifts in governance, operations, architecture, and sourcing that need to be factored into enterprise digital transformation strategies going forward.

The predictions that follow will have an impact on digital infrastructure strategies and investments and are deeply consequential to CIOs and IT organizations over the next five years. Innovative and forward-looking IT leaders will begin to evaluate where, how, and when the infrastructure technologies, governance approaches, management capabilities, and sourcing strategies that support the underlying predictions will be evaluated, tested, and deployed in their organizations.

Together with event partners, leading technology leaders, we will present and discuss approaches, solutions and ideas that innovative and forward-thinking IT leaders can test, evaluate and implement within their organizations in the near future.

2022 Digital Infrastructure and Cloud Trends

Carla Arend

Senior Program Director, Lead Analyst, Cloud in Europe, IDC

IT infrastructure of the future has cloud as its design point and operating model, and organisations are building out their hybrid and multicloud architectures. IT organizations need to handle multilayer business applications in complex multicloud operations as well as dynamic cloud-native applications on the same digital platform. Key challenges are cost management, data management, security, performance and management across multiple clouds.

To deal with these challenges successfully, IT organisations should look not only at the technology evolution and select the right cloud providers, cloud operating model, and target architecture, but also at the development of skills and the cultural change that follow the change in technology platform.
