We all are reading about IT Infrastructure and how it is at the core of everything which is happening today. But are organizations really leveraging it effectively? A large amount of revenue is lost by companies each year because of their inability to use their IT Infrastructure effectively. Let’s face it - the fact remains Infrastructure Matters.
Our recent study titled Continuing the IT infrastructure conversation: Why building a strong foundation requires more than technology, shows a lot of interesting findings:
- Only 22 percent of organizations have a well-defined enterprise IT infrastructure strategy and roadmap
- Only 30 percent are successful at collaborating with the business to provide IT infrastructure solutions to support their business needs
- Only 23 percent are successful at collecting, analyzing and documenting performance measures
- And only 39 percent are successful at supporting cross-functional teams of infrastructure domain experts to identify, source and implement IT infrastructure solutions.
Companies feel they know it all and they are ahead in the race. But the questions remain if everyone knows everything, why isn’t the IT Infrastructure being used to put Big Data and Analytics to work faster and efficiently?
