Considered to be roadblocks to digital transformation, legacy systems and infrastructure have to soon be replaced if organizations have to stay ahead of the curve. These systems operate in silos harming productivity and are not compatible with other data systems. Being unreliable and inefficient they increase the downtime and maintaining them is expensive too. Delivering poor customer experience, these obsolete systems pose many risks and challenges and are unsustainable.

On the other hand, it makes good business sense for organizations to modernize their infrastructure to benefit from the several advantages it offers. Reliability, cost-effectiveness, faster go-to-market, scalability, and flexibility are only a few rewards the modern IT environment extends. Furthermore, this advanced infrastructure is highly secure and supports innovation which drives the creation of differentiators for the organization. Businesses have this sound option of modernizing the infrastructure and applications thereby empowering teams to deliver better performance.
There are several factors to be taken into consideration when it comes to modernizing the IT Infrastructure. With organizations modernizing their IT infrastructure, the existing application stacks are transformed.
Multi-cloud strategy Cloud services help in optimizing those applications that are unique to the respective services provider. The portfolio of cloud services, the tools to enable DevOps and other advantages differ from one cloud service provider to another. To manage the various cloud providers and run different workloads on specific clouds as the business demands, is by establishing a multi-cloud infrastructure. This enhances efficiency across all environments. IT leaders are choosing hybrid cloud to accelerate the organization’s IT infrastructure modernization efforts. This approach delivers more flexibility and intensifies security measures.
Hybrid approach Hybrid cloud integrates across on-premises infrastructure, and private and public cloud environments. Being a seamlessly connected system, it enables orchestration and portability across the environments. The traditional hybrid cloud infrastructure only focused on transforming select aspects of the on-prem to private cloud to be later connected to the public cloud. In contrast, the modern hybrid cloud architecture improves app portability across all cloud environments. Automating the deployments of the workloads to the most suitable environment is another significant aspect of the hybrid approach.
Organizations are now aware of the long-term advantages of hybrid cloud adoption including cost efficiency. During the expansion of IT capabilities, investments in buying, installing, and maintaining additional servers are eliminated. It also delivers edge computing capabilities increasing the speed of operations and ensuring critical services are close to end-users.
Machine learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Intelligence is not present in the IT infrastructure for learning and observing the correlation between various IT elements. Data trends and insights for making the right decisions are not possible without the introduction of AI-based IT infrastructure which leverages Machine Learning, Big Data, and Analytics. Advanced Machine Learning (ML) algorithms help in effectively identifying the outliers and prevent potential disruptions of the IT infrastructure.
