Enterprise IT has gone through several waves of evolution since the birth of computing. The computing platform has evolved from mainframe computing to minicomputers, shifted to client/server computing, and finally moved to Internet computing in the cloud era.
Each transition saw computing evolve in the following ways:
• The cost of computing fell by orders of magnitude, enabling businesses to deploy more compute resources to handle almost every business process.
• The primary computing location has continued to change
• The network has continued to grow in importance with each successive compute transition.
• Core network infrastructure has expanded.
