To succeed in the Idea Economy, businesses must turn their ideas into value faster than the competition. IT must now maintain traditional operations while also creating new applications and services for mobile, social, and cloud technologies. In this environment, on-demand, high-performance applications are the name of the game. Traditionally, enterprise IT was built as a siloed physical infrastructure with networks, servers, and storage systems dedicated to specific company applications. As companies accumulated more data, datacenters expanded accordingly and required all manner of bolted-on hardware to keep things running smoothly. Task-driven, sluggish, and focused on stability over agility, these legacy infrastructures have become expensive and unsustainable behemoths that impede progress. IT is being asked to lower operating costs in traditional environments while simultaneously increasing operational velocity in the development of new applications. A new architecture is needed, one designed to power innovation and value creation for this new breed of applications while running traditional workloads more efficiently.
