The pace of business keeps accelerating, and it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Success will depend on a company’s ability to react quickly to new opportunities.

Unfortunately, many companies are in danger of being left behind their competitors because their IT infrastructure is holding them back. New opportunities advanced by escalating demand for mobility, social business, and insightful analytics cannot wait for resources to be procured, configured, and deployed manually. Response needs to be immediate in order to meet increasing expectations for availability, scalability, and speed.
