"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past.
Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."

In today’s dynamic business environment where applications and data are accessed outside of traditional corporate boundaries, IT must embrace the needs of both the business and an ever present mobile workforce. From business agility to employee efficiency, the never-ending quest for improved productivity is found in organisations across industries. And throughout it all, IT is charged with maintaining an organisation’s infrastructure, and security and access, while working to support initiatives that keep the business agile and growing, and employees productive.
Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.
The performance of enterprise applications will have a direct impact on business activities and outcomes. The quality of the delivery of applications will depend on how smoothly the underlying data infrastructure operates.
? Optimal application performance and delivery is difficult to achieve in complex environments.
? Many IT infrastructure and operations teams are stretched to the breaking point.
? Predictive analytics and machine learning can be applied to great effect

Digital information has quickly become the lifeblood of business success, enabling firms to become more
operationally efficient and to better serve their customers. As companies seek to harness their data in new ways, the
infrastructure that houses that data can falter under the strain. In response, new innovations have emerged to help
address the concerns of managing and protecting these increasingly important data capacities. While some vendors
focus innovation development on software alone and allow the hardware to remain commodity, Dell Technologies is

A famous architect once said that the origin of architecture was defined by the first time “two bricks were put together well.” And the more bricks you have, the more important putting them together well becomes. The same holds true in our data centers. The architecture of our compute, storage and network devices has always been important, but as the demands on our IT infrastructures grow, and we add more “bricks,” the architecture becomes more critical.
