Short summary video of the Data Center 2020 and IT Operations 2020 chapters

mikeshaw747

I've just created a forth summary Enterprise 2020 video. This one is about the Data Center of 2020. It also summarizes the IT Operations 2020 chapter, but "Data Center / IT Operations 2020" is a bit too much of a mouthful of a title!

 

For me, the Data Center/IT Ops of 2020 can be summarized by a story I heard the other day. A friend of mine knows a group of guys who formed a start up a few years ago. Their SaaS service specializes in recognizing faces in photographs. 

 

As they formed their startup, they had to decide whether or not they would host their own data center. They decided not to - they wanted to get going quickly.

 

However, they have just got a new round of funding and have reconsidered their original data center decision.

 

They have decided that they will now have their own data center. Not for the generic, non-core applications, but for their key, recognition service. Why did they decide this? They decided that the recognition service is their differentiator. They decided that they must therefore make this make better than any competition - more accure and faster.

 

And it's for the "faster" piece that they believe they need to have their own data center. They have optimized the hardware/software in their data center so that someone who tries to compete can never do so using generic cloud services.

 

In other words a/ let the stuff that is generic and non-core go and b/ focus like crazy on that IT that differentiates the business.
