Data center transformation, consolidation, and migration projects often stretch customer IT operations teams. Most of the time, the team’s skillset and procedures cannot cope with the amount and nature of the changes in the physical environment. The enterprise’s IT transformation roadmap would provide insight to validate the future state IT requirement that will lay the foundation for the data center strategy and meet business objectives. There’s a healthy, built-in distrust between facilities, real estate, and IT teams.
Very often I am asked by customers to validate their “future state” IT requirements and to help develop their data center strategy to support their IT transformation roadmap.
