See how businesses have altered operating environments, applications and processes to meet IT infrastructure modernization goals, their budgets and how far along they've gotten.
Although there are many facets to infrastructure modernization, and there are just as many benefits, there is a common thread that runs through all IT modernization projects: business transformation.
IT modernization has a lot of moving parts, however. It often involves deploying, adopting and/or upgrading on-premises, cloud and edge platforms, and then optimizing and integrating those platforms. Other aspects include updating or deploying new applications, IT processes and governance policies.
According to a February 2020 Insight Enterprises report, "The State of IT Modernization 2020" (based on a survey of 200 IT executives by IDG Research), only 25% of respondents met their initial IT infrastructure modernization goals. Challenges to success included establishing new governance strategies, as well as defining, optimizing and integrating the data platforms these policies were meant to govern.
According to the report, in spite of these obstacles, organizations at all stages of the infrastructure modernization process achieved some measurable level of business benefit, including areas of cost-efficiency, availability, customer experience and quality of service. Explore these and other pertinent areas of IT modernization success in this infographic.
