Power to the Cloud : Middle East Datacenter Conference 2013 Schneider Electric & IDC | Schneider Electric Middle East Data Center 2013

Building Next - Generation Mission Critical IT Infrastructure

Governments and private sector organizations are looking to optimize operations as they expand their footprints. New technologies are now enabling cost efficiencies in IT infrastructure installations like never before. Equally significantly, several new technology innovations are now helping us re-imagine efficiencies and optimization in general infrastructure and services. The greatest impact of this is visible in the area of smart cities, where IT is transforming the delivery of public services and management of energy and utilities.

The pursuit of improved operational efficiency, cost savings, and business value is one of the key objectives of IT investment for organizations. The technology systems within organizations, and the management thereof, have become highly complex due to rapid increases in the number of resources that need to be supported, particularly by the datacenter. Since the existing traditional architectures lead to inherent inefficiencies in resource utilization and management, organizations are increasingly looking to adopt technologies such as virtualization, cloud, converged infrastructure, datacenter management software and integrated offerings to meet the increasing demands on IT from the business. However, IT budgets are not keeping pace with this growth in demand, and IT managers are being asked to improve the utilization of existing assets, optimize new deployments, and demonstrate ROI. In addition, improving the efficiency of urban infrastructure is essential to becoming a smarter city. Urban efficiency will deliver better public services, increase city attractiveness, drive its sustainability objectives and enhance its competitiveness on the regional or global stage.Infrastructure priorities of ME CIO
