Logicalis US asserted successful CIOs have realized the importance and advantage of a converged infrastructure, yet CI’s purpose is changing to face critical industry issues with shadow IT.
Logicalis released “Converged Infrastructure for Targeted Workloads: Using Converged Infrastructures to Catapult your IT Environment into the Future of Computing,” a downloadable white paper with strategies and principles surrounding the new nature of CI.
"CIOs are feeling the pressure from line-of-business managers who need new applications and computing resources to do their jobs and expect the IT staff to deliver these things on demand," says Brett Anderson, Director of Cloud and Data Center Solutions, Logicalis US. "Instead of having the IT staff build out these systems in house, many savvy IT leaders have discovered that a converged infrastructure offers them a pre-built, highly reliable infrastructure that speeds the deployment of these applications and IT services, freeing their department to concentrate on ways to better support the business as a whole.
Samad Ali, vice president of HP solutions, discussed benefits and challenges of CI in a WatchIT video, available here for further information.
