so let's talk

Ernie to modernize data centers we see it as a three-step approach modernizing the IT infrastructure automating service delivery and transforming people and processes many IT organizations choose to approach this journey and steps starting by modernizing infrastructure than automating IT services and incremental e transforming people and processes in order to support new generation application demands and business models

other organizations however want to jump start this journey by adopting technology solutions from leading vendors that combine the benefits of all three steps they want to transform as quickly as possible in this lesson we'll learn about each step the first step towards a modern data center is to modernize the IT infrastructure the fastest and least risky approach is to deploy converged or

hyper Converged Infrastructure a converged or hyper Converged Infrastructure packages computer systems data storage networking equipment and virtualization and other management software into integrated and optimized units according to cio custom solutions group Converged Infrastructure enables IT to consolidate and standardized systems deploy and scale infrastructure rapidly

increase utilization rates and lower costs simplify infrastructure management reduce business risk through improved reliability and integrated approaches to security and disaster recovery and enable business innovation and agility through faster time to market for new infrastructure and the applications that depend on it there are three broad circumstances under which an organization should

seriously consider Converged Infrastructure when you make a fresh start when business growth demands rapid infrastructure growth and when infrastructure is running out of steam due to technology obsolescence or the inability to continue driving down unit cost infrastructure solutions are available in various types such as blocks racks

and appliances a block shaped converged infrastructure is built in an upright standalone enclosure which looks similar to a storage cabinet a rack shaped converged infrastructure includes standardized enclosures containing multiple mounting slots each of which holds one or more servers and other components and applying shaped Converged Infrastructure tightly integrates infrastructure components in a box

irrespective of the shape and form factor their data center systems ideal for the traditional as well as next generation applications converged infrastructure will be further detailed later in this week once organizations have a plan for modernizing infrastructure the next step is to automate IT operations any manual process that must be done as a predictable repeatable step must be eliminated via management and

orchestration tools across the IT stack shown here today's IT professionals demand more responsive services as they become more exposed to the offerings of external service providers full-scale automation not only accelerate service delivery but also guarantees predictable outcomes it helps in aligning IT operations and services to an organization strategic business goal and service level requirements

moreover it frees up human capital to focus more on business value and allows their creative minds to help transform the business the scope of automation revolves around two long-standing goals for IT organizations automation of operations management and orchestration of service delivery but achieving these goals is becoming more urgent because of the heightened expectations of the customers of IT organizations many IT

organizations have already started automating key operations management processes such as discovery of infrastructure change management capacity management and incident management which dramatically simplifies and reduces cost of IT operations in addition water management and orchestration software enables and two and automation of service delivery process and provides a self-service experience for the consumers of IT

organizations using software organizations can build and manage a Service Catalog easily automation will be extensively covered in the lessons of week 5 the final step of the journey is transformation modernization and automation are key milestones for the journey to a modern data center but it also includes people and processes to operate in new ways in order to

transform IT organizations must shift their skills identifying new role suitable for the new IT environments and change their policies and procedures to deliver new and better value to their customers and lines of business let's have a look at the scope of transformation across various domains beginning with operating model transformation

traditionally the request of IT are channeled for a lengthy approval and delivery process which is detrimental to agility and innovation adoption of the idea as a service operating model transforms traditional IT resource provisioning process to an IT service delivery process I t becomes a utility to the business and services are packaged and delivered for convenient consumption IT services are maintained in a Service Catalog

which enables lines of business to provision resources or deploy new applications in a self-service manner the idea has a service model is not just a platform for delivery of services it's a new IT business model that requires IT to become a strategic partner and service provider the IT department needs to develop perform brokering and automate IT

services aligned to business needs rather than align to application silos in addition it must provide a flexible service cost model and permit multiple options for sourcing resources such as cloud IT governance processes also need to be aligned to the desired behavior and results to achieve the strategic objectives of IT governance system an IT is a system which monitors evaluates and directs IT management to ensure effectiveness accountability and

compliance of IT while transitioning to IT as a service model IT governance needs to be structured in a way that enables IT to interact with business units and address regulatory and compliance issues in addition I t governance must define new processes to manage the services through their life cycle organizational transformation is another key area of the transformation focuses

on how the IT organization and the roles within it change when modernizing data centers new roles and responsibilities emerged to establish and manage services instead of only technology the new roles involved performing tasks related to service definition and creation service administration service governance and policy formulation and

service consumer management examples of new roles in a modern data center includes service operations manager account manager cloud architect cloud administrator and service portfolio manager the transformation must involve a shift in IT skills the transition to converged and software-defined infrastructure service portal automation and Trust along with changing roles for IT staff entails the

need for skills and new technologies and IT Service Management the skills in the areas of cloud big data social and mobile technologies are predicted by industry analyst IDC to become the new core IT competencies over the next two decades apart from technical and service management skills other business facing skills like marketing communication collaboration financial and agile development are considered equally important organizations may also take

the hybrid approach of adding specific skills to their in-house teams to focus on their core competencies while sourcing non-core activities from partners suppliers and third party service providers IT transformation will be further detailed in week 6 of this course
