Optimizing the deployment of “analytics-ready” infrastructure.
A fundamental change is afoot in how organizations operate and what drives success. Business analytics tools, and the ability to use them more effectively than the competition, will determine who is a digital predator and who is digital prey. As the renowned business theorist Geoffrey Moore noted, “Without big data [and] analytics, companies are blind and deaf, wandering out onto the web like deer on a freeway.”
For IT organizations, the requirement for high-performance systems and analytics tools that work with petabytes of information is not a good match for legacy infrastructure and IT strategies. And forward-thinking IT organizations are developing new infrastructure strategies to better support high-value analytics workloads.
