Future of Enterprise Datacenters: Invest or Outsource
This IDC Perspective provides guidance for datacenter investments. While the datacenter portfolio of the future may have less datacenter space owned and operated by the enterprise, the overall compute capacity will be larger, more complex and have an increased number of facilities. Datacenter managers should be investing in people, process, and technology to prepare for that future.
"While the need for datacenter operators will remain and grow, there will be an increasing demand for business Savvy IT generalists for vendor management and liaising with business units for digital transformation efforts and IT architects who will find the best fit for given workloads regardless of location and integrating it all together," says Rob Brothers, program VP for Datacenter and Services at IDC.
