One of the key tenets of a modern data center is the ability to leverage technologies that enable automation in order to accelerate business processes and ultimately time to market. Organizations that continue to deploy legacy infrastructures and ignore this transformation to modern automated environments will soon face a harsh reality: Their legacy IT environments have restricted their ability to compete. Considering the fact that all modern businesses rely on IT to power their operations, IT organizations need to examine all aspects of the IT infrastructure for its ability to be automated and ensure that the deployed technology is an enabler for this transformation and not an inhibitor. The key to making the transformation from a legacy network to a modern infrastructure is adding the enabling technologies or services to create this new automated environment.
