Challenges with the typical infrastructure buying model
Inability to scale up resources dynamically and cost-effectively, or decrease capacity when assets become surplus.
Lack of transparency to see where usage and consumption activity is trending across locations, which makes it difficult to properly provision capacity and balance workloads.
Struggle of reducing operating expenditures while improving responsiveness, capacity, capabilities, and staff as infrastructure grows.
Innovation vs. Investment
Upfront capital investment is required to bring new technology in-house and locks organizations into using equipment soon to become outdated.
