An IDG Connect survey of 300 enterprise organization decision makers involved in hardware investment decisions reveals the challenges and opportunities that lay between the old style of IT characterized by cost-cutting and infrastructure silos, with the new style of IT driven by the technology trends of Mobility, Cloud and Big Data. These trends have created a significant increase in business expectations that will press IT organizations to rethink their economics, service delivery and business performance. This paper highlights voice-of-the-IT-buyer research results for insight on the challenges and opportunities for IT organizations to drive innovation, transformation and improved delivery against business expectations.

This assessment is composed of a core set of comparative questions, and the option to be assessed in any of three key areas: computing economics, service delivery and business performance.
After a half-decade of cost cutting and shrinking IT budgets, the compute infrastructure that powers the enterprise now is typically inefficient, slow and not optimized for business outcomes.
It is better suited to the economic realities of 2010 rather than the rigors of the application workloads, delivery models & business expectations of today driven by cloud, mobility, security and big data megatrends. As a result, there is a significant gap between what businesses expect from technology and what IT can deliver.

Les activités IT et métier sont concernées par de nombreuses tendances : l’adoption du Cloud, l’accroissement de la mobilité, l’essor des médias sociaux et l’augmentation des flux d’informations circulant au sein de toute l’entreprise. Le concept de périmètre réseau n’a plus de sens. En effet, l’IT doit aujourd’hui composer avec des identités hautement distribuées sur l’ensemble de l’environnement métier et provenant de nombreuses sources, telles que des applications, des systèmes, des médias sociaux, etc.
Les employés et les clients mobiles sont, par ailleurs, en train de changer profondément l’activité et de redéfinir le défi consistant à fournir rapidement des applications sécurisées à une population d’utilisateurs en constante évolution. À chaque défi son opportunité. L’identité remplace désormais le périmètre réseau, et seules les entreprises qui ont compris cette évolution sont en mesure de dynamiser et de protéger leur activité.
