Adapt to survive – the future for IT



In his Origin of the Species, Charles Darwin wrote, “In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment.” Adaptation – the process of changing to fit current circumstances – is also a critical survival skill in business. Companies lbigstock--156978563.jpgike Amazon and Uber that are good at adapting quickly to customer needs succeed and thrive. Companies that aren’t good at adapting don’t stick around for very long.

As an IT professional in today’s enterprise, you’re facing challenges that require you to adapt to survive. Your team is torn between supporting two different worlds: traditional applications that run the business, and a new breed of applications and services that leverage mobility, big data, and cloud-native technologies. Your legacy systems are critical to your business, and they’re not going anywhere. But you need flexibility to grow, innovate, and adapt to a constantly evolving landscape. It’s key to survival – for you, for your team, and for your business.

Tools for survival

In the wild, survival depends on the tools you have at your disposal. Will your tools allow you to adapt to your current situation, and give you flexibility for whatever comes next? It’s no different in IT. To bridge the old and the new models of IT, you need an infrastructure management tool that can manage both as a single infrastructure on a single platform. And it needs to be flexible enough to change as both the industry and your business evolve.

To improve your chances of survival, an infrastructure management tool must provide your team with a few key advantages. First, it needs a single interface so you can easily design, provision, monitor, and update your IT resources. Next, it must bring software-defined intelligence to deliver a new level of automation to your data center by taking a template-driven approach to provisioning, updating, and integrating compute, storage, and networking infrastructure.

What you need is an infrastructure automation engine that can simplify operations and increase the speed of IT delivery for new applications and services.

Adapt to survive

By balancing new and legacy environments, you can accomplish simple, efficient lifecycle management across your entire infrastructure. Look for a single interface, so you can have a unified view of the health of servers, profiles, and enclosures across multiple virtual and physical appliances through a global dashboard. This means better infrastructure visibility and better informed, faster decision-making for your business. Having clear visibility across your entire infrastructure gives you the ability to adapt faster – to move from fixing problems to taking advantage of new opportunities.

No one knows what changes the future might bring, but your ability to survive improves if your tools give you the flexibility to respond and adapt to change.
