According to IBM 2012 Global CEO Study, 71% of CEOs identify technology change as the most important external force impacting their organizations. For the first time, business leaders across all industries are seeking answers to respond to the rapidly changing technological advancements. However, a well-organized IT infrastructure mainly, one that is software-defined will enable business leaders to respond to the dynamic market changes, anticipate customer preferences, and outpace competition by simplifying their data centers, making it more flexible, efficient, and less expensive to operate as rigid silos will be transformed into adaptive IT.
