‘Five Cs’ of IT infrastructure
Regardless of the size of your business, the network estate that provides the platform for your critical business applications will continue to grow as you add devices to support mobility (not forgetting the challenge of BYOD) and increase efficiency and take advantage of technologies such as virtualisation to improve business continuity or achieve potential savings.
As the trend continues towards simplification of the user environment, what’s happening in the background of almost all IT systems is becoming increasingly complex.
None of the elements of your system operates in isolation and that means it’s essential that you have the right combination of components, correctly configured and to ensure that the applications and software underpinned by your technology platform are performing to best effect.
Conflicts = Cost
It’s a simple equation and one that can be difficult to avoid, especially if you’re not fully aware and in control of what’s happening across your system.
