Investing in a Business Outcomes-Driven Digital Infrastructure

IDC Infrastructure

IDC’s research shows that 80% of decision makers worldwide recognize that digital infrastructure is important or mission critical to enabling the achievement of business goals. IT infrastructure of an enterprise is a significant asset that is being designed, deployed, and developed throughout the life cycle of the organization itself. For a large companies, modernization of IT infrastructure is among other things a risk of making not the most optimal decisions, both in terms of budget, scope of work and complexity of the transformation project, as well as preserving the functionality of information systems without the involvement of additional IT workforce.

Making the right decisions about where to invest in digital infrastructure modernization and integration will fundamentally impact an organization’s ability to execute its digital business agenda and save nerves, time, and money.
