VMware surveyed approximately 200 senior IT leaders at enterprise, commercial, and SMB organizations worldwide to shed light on the evolving role of IT. In the face of increased pressures, IT oganizations are needing to accelerate development and delivery of applications that power faster time-to-market for the business.
In this paper, we chart the progress of CIOs, CTOs and other IT leaders and discuss the top challenges they face in building more nimble, responsive organizations to support their business objectives. We also show how data centre modernization can help organizations deliver the agility required to meet ever-increasing demands for faster innovation through a flexible, service-oriented IT model that employs both private and public clouds.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By
allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly
lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more
tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos.
Currently, this virtualization juggernaut shows no sign of slowing. As businesses recognize the potential for
increased reliability and scalability offered by virtual technology, they are ramping up their investments in data
center modernization and upgrading. In fact, 33 percent of the respondents to a recent ESG survey on cloud
usage said that making greater use of server virtualization was one of their top five spending priorities for the
next 12 to 18 months.
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
This paper can help you achieve successful legacy modernization projects. It presents practical steps for starting application modernization projects and describes the benefits of three high payback strategies. It also reviews the criteria for evaluating a variety of modernization tools.
Applications modernization has become imperative as the maintenance of “mature” applications consumes a disproportionate share of resources. HP aligns critical applications and infrastructure with your overall modernization program.

Technology is quickly moving to the forefront of business priorities as organizations undertake digital and IT transformation projects that enable strategic differentiation in a world where users leverage applications and data in new ways. Organizations in all industries must better align with changing customer preferences to avoid being disrupted by a new crop of nimble competitors. Technology will increasingly determine how businesses define and distinguish themselves in the market. IDC has noted that most organizations were not born digital but instead have legacy business processes, applications, and infrastructure that require modernization and automation. As a result, businesses must embark on an IT transformation initiative to modernize and automate their legacy infrastructure to prime themselves to achieve their digital business goals and initiatives.

Under pressure to improve service levels and contain costs, many enterprises are adopting a dual operating system (OS) approach. They are choosing Windows for office productivity and collaboration applications and Red Hat Enterprise Linux for infrastructure and datacenter modernization. Red Hat Enterprise Linux easily integrates with existing Windows infrastructure, making dual deployment possible.
Organizations are running their business on exponentially more data, created by more users, from different devices, and through different IT services and digital processes. While some data growth is fueled by new applications, it also arrives increasingly from non-traditional IT sources, including digital media, machines, and edge devices. Edge IoT devices are generating a massive amount of data that must be managed, monitored, stored, and analyzed. Deciding where to perform each of these functions is critical to supporting new data-driven global business services and processes. This blueprint from HPE Pointnext, the Services division of HPE, is based on real-world experiences from many customers across a range of industries on how to leverage flash storage modernization.
In considering the four principal options of data center modernization, keep in mind that each option need not be treated as a separate and distinct approach. Data center stakeholders may want to combine options in order to better accommodate a particular migration timeline. Or cautious executives may want to simply dabble with the outsourcing option by piloting only a few select applications while still maintaining a core corporate data center. The key critical success factor is the recognition that data center modernization is not a one-time fi x, but rather a critical piece of an ongoing strategy to better service customers.

These challenges stem from an increased focus on agility and scale for building modern applications—and traditional application development methodology cannot support this environment.
CA Technologies has expanded full lifecycle API management to include microservices—an integration enabling the best of breeds to work together to provide the platform for modern architectures and a secure environment for agility and scale. CA enables enterprises to use best practices and industry–leading technology to accelerate and make the process of architecture modernization more practical.
As organizations begin to adopt public cloud, one element of consideration is what to do with existing applications. These applications were not built with cloud in mind, though most are virtualized today. These organizations must now determine a modernization strategy for these applications and incorporate how public cloud might fit into the picture. This paper examines the use of public cloud for data center extension and replacement, particularly in light of existing traditional enterprise applications. It also looks at the role of VMware's vCloud Air public cloud service in meeting the needs of these applications.
