Today, data is constantly flowing in and out of organizations from electrical and mechanical sensors, RFID tags, smart meters, scanners, mobile devices, vehicles, live social media, machines and other objects. Did you know that a modern plane with more than 10,000 sensors just in the wings is expected to generate more than 7 terabytes a day? And Bain predicts that by 2020 annual revenues could exceed $470 billion for the internet of things (IoT) vendors selling hardware, software and comprehensive solutions. Analysts believe that all of this data will drive a new type of industrial revolution – one that’s driven by highly accurate, real-time analysis, alerts and actions. Increasingly, machines will automate decisions and simply notify humans with instructions. Consider the promise of the IoT, where any object can be connected to the internet and continuously send and receive data. Gartner says that by 2020, 21 billion IoT devices will be in use worldwide.

Businesses understand more than ever that they depend on data for insight and competitive advantage. And when it comes to data, they have always wanted easy access and fast performance. But how is the situation different now? Today, organizations want those elements and more. They want IT to strip away the limitations of time with faster deployment of new databases and applications. They want IT to reduce the limitations of distance by giving remote and branch offices better and more reliable access. And in a global world where business never stops, they want IT to ensure data availability around the clock. If IT can deliver databases and applications faster, on a more automated and consistent basis, to more locations without having to commit onsite resources, IT will be free to focus on more strategic projects.

Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets. What’s needed is a common resource that both IT and business managers intrinsically value, one that can guide decisions about new business initiatives and related technology investments. That rallying point is enterprise data. Because incumbents possess richer reserves of business information, they wield a competitive advantage that even the most disruptive insurgents can’t claim. The key is for established companies to unlock the full potential of this important resource to fuel business transformation and help to maintain their leadership positions in volatile and quickly evolving markets.

Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage. Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner for the business, the IT staff needs processes and tools in place to deliver solutions at a much faster pace. As digital services propel more and more business processes, cloud technology is proving to be a crucial addition to the IT services portfolio. It is far more scalable, and in many cases more cost effective, than its predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking, and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.

The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered. Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage. The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.
