Our planet is not only getting smaller and flatter – it’s getting smarter. IT infrastructure is reaching a breaking point. As the world gets smarter, demands on IT will grow.
A new era is here
Information technology is changing rapidly, and now forms an invisible layer that increasingly touches every aspect of our lives. Power grids, traffic control, healthcare, water supplies, food and energy, along with most of the world's financial transactions, now depend on information technology.
