Enterprises must undergo a digital transformation. It is not a matter of if, but when. And most IT organizations are choosing now as the time.
IT teams are responsible for more applications than ever that require more compute resources than ever as these applications service more customers than ever (internal and external). Legacy application architectures, traditional on-premises infrastructure, and existing operational processes just can’t scale to meet demand.
These challenges have served as a catalyst for enterprise IT organizations to begin adopting containers, microservices-based architecture, and hybrid cloud environments (extending their datacenter with public and/or private clouds). These technologies are capable of delivering unprecedented automation, scale, and performance to meet demand; however, achieving business results from modern technologies takes more than “checking the cloud box.” It requires a strategic plan.
Ranga Rajagopalan, CTO and Co-Founder at Avi Networks, provides guidance for IT leaders when crafting their strategic plan for IT modernization in a recent Forbes article entitled Best Practices to Manage Your Hybrid Cloud.
In the article, Ranga explains that it is important for enterprises to consider the application, the environment, and how you plan to connect the two before you begin migration. Connectivity becomes critical for modern applications and infrastructure. Without a modern connective fabric, enterprises cannot achieve their desired results.
Ranga provides 3 key best practices that anybody considering or experiencing a digital transformation should consider. You can read his full article on Forbes. And please share your thoughts and opinions with us on Twitter @AviNetworks.
