UK businesses need to urgently review their IT infrastructures after 83 per cent of IT managers questions by NetApp admitted their systems are not ready for the future.
Software and hardware restrictions are part of the problem, as 39 per cent say their current systems don’t allow for integration with other vendors’ products, leading to issues when providers fail to expand into areas that organisations wish to explore, such as virtualisation and cloud platforms.
Regarding future infrastructure requirements, NetApp’s marketing manager Laurence James explains what must change. “This is something they will undoubtedly have to tackle and I suggest they look to implement a cost-effective agnostic solution that enables them to simplify data management to help lower risk while increasing control. This will ultimately enable them to adapt quicker in response to change.”
