IDC defines the 3rd Platform of computing as the surge in mobile, big data, social, and cloud. In a recent paper titled “Assessing the Business Value of Integrated Systems,” IDC claims that this new platform requires IT executives to consider every new hardware and software purchase to ensure progression towards automated, high performance, and cloud-based IT infrastructure.
IDC goes on to say that integrated systems are increasingly viewed as a way to achieve these objectives and cites research of integrated systems users as evidence. The results are impressive – 47% of those surveyed reported improvements to IT staff productivity, 61% reported increased speed of application deployment, and 48% reported a reduction in data center related IT spending.
Do you agree with these findings? I’ll be speaking with the author of this paper, Peter Rutten of IDC, during a webcast on Thursday, May 14th at 10am PT. If this topic interests you, please join us. Find more information here.
