The Future of Digital Infrastructure, 2022: Distributed by Design
This IDC Perspective provides insights into IDC's Future of Digital Infrastructure framework, initially introduced in 2020 and updated for 2022. This framework recognizes the full complexity and interconnectedness of today's on-premises, edge, and public cloud infrastructure environments. It provides IT buyers and their vendors with a perspective on how to maximize business resiliency, optimize application and business performance, and facilitate innovation by modernizing architectures, extending automation, taking advantage of ecosystems, and focusing on business outcomes.
"Successful future enterprises will depend heavily on digital infrastructure architectures and management strategies optimized for a new generation of highly distributed workers and data-intensive applications and services," explains Mary Johnston Turner, research vice president, Future of Digital Infrastructure Agenda program at IDC. "The Future of Digital Infrastructure demands environments that are "distributed by design" with the expectation that they will be highly automated, agile, and workload aware. IT and line-of-business leaders will need to proactively collaborate and align investments with digital business priorities and KPIs."
