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.

To cloud or not to cloud . . . that shouldn’t be the question

Article | February 28, 2020

In my discussions with clients about their journey to cloud, it’s becoming evident that many of them are viewing cloud as a goal, instead of looking at cloud deployments as a capability. In some cases, line-of-business owners are under corporate pressures to “adopt” a cloud-first strategy. A recent Forrester Consulting study commissioned by IBM, “The Key To Enterprise Hybrid Multicloud Strategy”[1] suggests that “75% [of 350 surveyed global decision makers] have received pushback while advocating for strategies outside of cloud environments.” The result of this, unfortunately, is the lack of continued investment on their on-premises (“on-prem”) environments. From my experience, this type of deployment focus may not yield the expected results. We shouldn’t think about problem solving as “To cloud or not to cloud?” Instead, we should ask ourselves, “What is the problem I’m trying to solve?” and “Are cloud deployments (public or private) going to optimize my solution?”

Why enterprises are going all-in on hyperscale

Article | February 28, 2020

Cloud computing continues to dominate the technology space, with cloud migration yielding a rain of opportunities and benefits. To date, achieving massive scale in computing power and data storage is a priority for organizations looking to mature in digital transformation. Hyperscale infrastructure is designed exclusively for that purpose, and it offers increasingly relevant features such as high levels of performance and high tolerance and room for error as well as redundancy. A recent report showed enterprises are leaning towards hyperscalers for cloud services as compared to second-tier providers.
