In this book, we are going to look at the key trends driving the modernization of data infrastructure. We’ll see how organizations are adapting and flourishing in a data-driven world. For some time, headlines have been around the internet of things (IoT),
big data and data analytics. While these developments are important, the reality is that you cannot take full advantage of them without modernization. We’re going to look at these trends and priorities in detail, then look at the three key drivers of modernization: governance, mobilization and analytics. We’ll also consider the technologies that make up modern data infrastructure including artificial intelligence (AI), flash storage, converged and hyperconverged platforms and software-defined infrastructures. By making sense of data, we make sense of the world. With more data than ever before, we have the tools to turn all that information into intelligent innovation and change the way the world works.
In this infographic, we are going to show you the possibilities with modernized, optimized data infrastructure. In doing so, we aim to bring you ideas about how you can bring your own data-driven business vision to life, focusing on the outcomes that matter most to you.
In essence, we will be discussing five main industries and the possibilities for modernized data infrastructure. We will be displaying how Banking and Financial Services, Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Healthcare and Retail can use data, analytics and automation to optimize their business, therefore bringing about a competitive edge which previously appeared unimaginable. Using data correctly, most importantly building proper data infrastructures, can be the driving force behind obtaining a competitive edge.
Data is your story. And it’s our story, too.

Today’s mega IT trends – cloud computing, big data, mobile and social media –have dramatically altered how enterprises work, requiring datacenters to find new, more flexible and cost effective ways to meet computing demands.
For most datacenters, the path toward tomorrow's compute paradigm mandates an investment in standardization and consolidation as well as a more robust adoption of enterprise virtualization software, along with cloud system software to extend that virtualized infrastructure into a true private cloud environment.
Linux has emerged as one of the key elements to a modernization program for a datacenter.

The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered.
Business executives and managers at
business-to-business (B2B) enterprises care
about time, money, competitive advantage,
customer loyalty and growth. Few pay much
attention to the vital IT infrastructure that
supports transactions and collaboration with
trading partners—though that B2B backbone
directly affects performance and profitability. In
fact, just 26 percent of business managers view
B2B integration as a competitive differentiator,
according to a study for IBM by Vanson Bourne,
a research consultancy.
As a result, many enterprises continue to utilize
manual and error-prone emails, faxes and file
transfers for B2B transactions. Reliance on
complex, brittle and antiquated systems to
exchange critical data impacts time to market,
cost-efficiency and satisfaction across
suppliers and end-customers. Modernization of
B2B integration in recent years has moved
forward in fits and starts, often undermined by
competing priorities and misalignment between
business and IT managers.
