Rethinking How We Measure IT Infrastructure Value

Article | February 28, 2020

Planning needs a rethink. Else, IT leaders risk hobbling their companies’ growth potential or becoming blindsided by risks. For many, justifying an IT decision to the CFO or the Board begins with a business case. Often, they use the total cost of ownership (TCO) to convince. Using return on investment (ROI) goes a step further than IT costs and savings, and looks at user efficiency and business effectiveness. Both measures fall short on correctly highlighting the true impact to the business of an enabling technology or infrastructure. Either the metric is too narrow, the timeline is too short, or the investment is not mature enough. It warrants a more holistic approach that looks at multiple aspects of risks, costs and benefits, and compares different components of ROI.

The critical role of Internet of Things infrastructure in connecting all of our devices

Article | February 20, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) will fundamentally change all industries, from agriculture to transportation to healthcare. In the next few decades, nearly everything in our world will become connected. But with that increased connectivity comes several concerns. For example, the IoT will generate immense amounts of data, which will put pressure on the Internet and force us to come up with more efficient ways to transmit and store this data. Perhaps chief among these concerns are the infrastructure considerations as other sectors grow thanks to the IoT. Below, we've outlined the future of IoT infrastructure management, along with some IoT infrastructure companies that are leading the way.

Edge computing environments: what you need to know

Article | March 24, 2020

The saying goes: “If you’re not on the edge, you’re taking up too much space”. And compute itself is now moving to the edge, forcing datacentre operators to wring the last drops of productivity from their infrastructure, ahead of a future supporting multi-sensor internet of things (IoT) devices over 5G for machine learning, and even artificial intelligence (AI). Jennifer Cooke, research director of cloud-to-edge datacentre trends at IDC, says datacentre operators need to start thinking about how many systems they will need to roll out, and the people they will need to support them. “Cost becomes the prohibitive factor,”

Infrastructure as code vs. platform as code

Article | April 15, 2020

With infrastructure as code (IaC), you write declarative instructions about compute, storage and network requirements for the infra and execute it. How does this compare to platform as code (PaC) and what did these two concepts develop in response to? In its simplest form, the tech stack of any application has three layers — the infra layer containing bare metal instances, virtual machines, networking, firewall, security etc.; the platform layer with the OS, runtime environment, development tools etc.; and the application layer which, of course, contains your application code and data. A typical operations team works on the provisioning, monitoring and management of the infra and platform layers, in addition to enabling the deployment of code.
