Future of Digital Infrastructure
Ensure ever faster delivery
of reliable digital services and experiences
The emerging digital infrastructure ecosystem, increasingly built on a cloud foundation, focuses on ensuring ever faster delivery of innovative infrastructure hardware, software, resource abstraction, and process technologies to support the development and continual refinement of resilient digital services and digital experiences.
Inside the Future of Digital Infrastructure
IDC’s Future of Digital Infrastructure framework recognizes the paramount role of cloud services. The transition to cloud-centric digital infrastructure, which is already underway in many enterprises, will continue to accelerate. A cloud-centric digital infrastructure enables timely access to innovative technologies to support digital business models and helps align technology adoption and IT operational governance with business outcomes.
Digital infrastructure will include resources that enable the shifting of applications and code for enhancing customer experiences (CXs), embedding intelligence/automation into business operations, and supporting ongoing industry innovation at edge locations.
Technology, deployment, and operations underpin the enterprise transition to digital infrastructure and the development of a complementary digital infrastructure ecosystem.
