Many large enterprise organizations are moving to hybrid cloud deployments as part of their overall IT strategy. Aligning IT with a cloud delivery model promises unparalleled flexibility and agility, but requires a solid plan – a blueprint for IT transformation – to get there. To help, Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), has created this blueprint – the IT Transformation Journey – and will have data center experts on hand to discuss attendees’ data center strategies in its booth (#110) at the Gartner Data Center Conference December 9-12 in Las Vegas.
Visitors to the Logicalis booth can take a quiz that will help them identify where they are along the road to their company’s future data center, and can discuss the results as well as their toughest data center challenges with expert Bob Mobach, Practice Director, Data Center Solutions, Logicalis US.
Companies that strategically confront their data center issues instead of avoiding them are finding significant opportunities to rationalize, consolidate and optimize data centers to better serve their needs. “As organizations grow, their IT needs will necessarily change and adapt,” Mobach says. “The question is whether those changes are part of a well-planned roadmap or haphazard reactions to a flurry of business line requests. Tackling tough questions today will help these organizations create an energy-efficient, fine-tuned data center that’s ready to tackle tomorrow’s challenges as they present themselves. The time to start thinking about tomorrow, though, is today. And that’s what we’re going to be doing at the Gartner Data Center Conference – helping attendees begin to uncover their unique blueprint for their organization’s data center of the future.”
