The Impact of Hyperconvergence on People, Process, and Technology

By: Eric SheppardResearch Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group


These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Santa Clara and Boston in February and March 2018.

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) has now matured into a mainstream infrastructure option for small to large enterprise IT organizations and from edge to core datacenters. The collapsing of compute, persistence, and data services brings with it the opportunity for organizations to refine their application architectures, team structures, operational processes, and workload placement. Over the next decade, IT organizations will continue to consolidate workloads on hyperconverged architectures as a means to reduce cost, enable greater levels of automation, and increase efficiency. The ability of the IT organization to streamline and consolidate infrastructure services can have a strong influence on the enterprise's ability to drive IT and business innovation. This session discusses the use cases, adoption patterns, and outlook for hyperconverged architectures and their role in different types of datacenters from core to edge locations. Deployment challenges to be anticipated, as well as factors that influence the shift of workloads from three tier to hyperconverged architectures, are discussed as a means to deliver agility and economic benefits to the organization.
