“IT transformation” is among the most commonly-used (and arguably the most over-used) term in the industry today, but no matter how you define it, one thing is clear: almost universally, enterprises are revamping their IT infrastructure to better meet modern business requirements. Michael D. Osterman, Principal Analyst at Osterman Research, recently unveiled during a webinar with George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland, that according to one of his firm’s most recent surveys, only 2% of enterprises have not begun their data center transformation with regard to the cloud.
For storage professionals, this is particularly notable because the cloud offers an avenue to providing the levels of storage capacity and data access that are required without breaking the bank. However, to achieve this end, the cloud must be used effectively.
