By enabling digital transformation of an enterprise to an application-aware infrastructure that captures workload requirements and leverages analytics to optimize in real-time, SDI is an IT trend that can have the greatest impact on an enterprise’s infrastructure and operations
As organizations are adopting SMAC (social media, mobility, analytics, and cloud computing), enterprise applications are becoming smarter with context sensitive analytics powered by mobility and social media. These newer capabilities are driving the underlying infrastructure to handle huge amounts of data. Constant innovation to stay relevant in the current competitive world is pushing the IT teams to spend more time with business than operating the infrastructure. This requires the underlying IT infrastructure to be more smart and self-managing completely. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) provides exactly this, where the applications define the policies and the underlying infrastructure delivers the application needs seamlessly with total automation. It enables digital transformation of the enterprise at a very optimal cost.
