We are very pleased to share a paper by analyst firm EMA that explores the challenges and approaches IT organizations need to take in order to achieve a software-defined operational state. In the words of EMA:
“EMA has identified the software-defined data center as one of the dominating trends in IT in 2014. However, in many cases, increased complexity in current IT environments, processes, and cultures has substantially impeded the organization’s ability to complete this transition.
EMA asked IT executives, IT operations staff, and business managers and executives of 235 organizations with highly mature IT departments that had deployed at least five SDDC-related technologies what they consider their most pressing IT challenges.”
This paper explores the results of that research and how technologies like software-defined infrastructure control can help.
