IT Transformation Road Map
Organizations always need to prepare to modernize, automate, and transform their infrastructure.
The steps below can help build an IT transformation roadmap.
1. Prioritize your IT Pain Points
Identify the areas where your organization could be at risk—application data silos, lack of alignment with business needs and security, etc.
2. Define Application & Workload Requirements
Always evaluate key performance factors like availability, scalability, speed, and flexibility. Accurately assessing the requirements of real-world business applications and workloads will in turn determine the optimal technology solutions.
3. Identify Technologies Crucial to Workloads
IT organizations use converged infrastructure or plan to do so. Most blend legacy systems and new solutions to automate service delivery of applications that support data analytics or desktop virtualization.
Ultimately, companies are expected to move towards a composable enterprise.
4. Develop a Deployment Strategy
When automating a business-critical application using a hybrid cloud, for example, weigh the benefits of converged, hyper-converged, and all-flash storage, so you can deploy with confidence.
5. Align Processes, People, and Culture
Understand how new business processes will affect employees and customers. Finding ways to help teams learn and adapt will transform your culture and processes for efficiency.
