IBM at Cisco Live: The future of hybrid cloud

Share this post:

In today’s hypercompetitive economy, your organization needs to deliver instant access to information, applications and services, or risk falling behind. If you use a traditional data center design with static resources, your IT infrastructure and staff likely can’t respond in time. Why?

Because traditional siloed environments are inefficient.  Staffing and budget constraints further complicate the issue, hindering you from expanding your environment to handle increases in capacity and more types and instances of applications and workloads.
