Every business today must evolve as a result of fluctuating market conditions and changing professional and social behaviour, and as an ongoing concern it is IT that will make all the difference to your future success. Why? Because leveraging technology is the only way to transform a business from a model of mere survival to an engine for growth.
Ensuring your business is equipped to deal with so many challenges in an ever changing financial climate must engender IT that increases productivity, lowers costs and improves your ability to innovate around staff, partners and customer needs. To do so requires a virtualised technology infrastructure and there are three fundamental reasons why.
The changing face of technology and pressures of supply vs. demand make adaptability crucial. As a business, how can you deliver services and products quicker and more innovatively than anyone else? With a responsive technology stack that empowers every stakeholder, from operations to sales to support.
To achieve this requires a virtualised, high performance server infrastructure that is flexible, scalable and cost effective. As a hosted service it also must deliver (as near to) 100% resilience and performance optimisation as demand for data, applications and communications fluctuate.
This is THE crucial requirement of server hardware in our cross-culture, globalised business world today. Scalable IT operations need interconnectivity, of people and process. To be adaptable requires layers of security that facilitate robust operations, yet there can be no trade-off in regards to flexibility of use or ease of access for company-wide IT enablement.
Dedicated virtual server hosting provides the closest possible solution to 100% uptime, this is crucial today. Server downtime halts productivity, destroys user confidence and ultimately eats into profits. It is therefore absolutely critical that in such instances you have failsafe mechanisms for backup servers and disaster recovery.
With a quality virtualisation platform your data should never get lost, security never breached, operations never compromised. This is because virtual infrastructures are monitored and managed as a 24/7 operation. They are dependent on immaculate service and uptime reliability, as such server migration and planned downtime can be prepared for in advance to minimise the impact of services being down, data loss and service reliability month after month.
Your data is the most valuable asset you own. It delivers the insights you need to provide truly exceptional service. As such it is absolutely critical that you choose a virtual server infrastructure that is fast, scalable and high performance, without compromising data integrity in any way.
Today’s server technologies are built on the fastest ever processors and run across super fast network connections that deliver almost instantaneous messaging and data. These advancements in hardware and networking put severe pressures on your data warehousing capabilities.
Simply put, your business is exposed to data in so many formats, from so many sources. It is being processed, routed and transacted quicker than ever before. How you capture this avalanche of big data makes or breaks your ability to run every facet of business. Primarily, a) to gain insights into customer behaviour through CRM, and b) to maximise operations through BI and BPM that scales.
How well you manage data as a growing warehouse of potentially game-changing information, is pivotal. It is here that your servers’ ability to store, filter and analyse the data you keep will elevate you as a thought leader in the market.
In no uncertain terms, virtualisation combines IT adaptability with data recovery and storage capacity, to truly deliver the best ROI from an IT stack that you can find today, and will need in the future.
