Digital business is enabled and enhanced through high-speed, secure, low-latency communication among enterprise assets, cloud resources, and an ecosystem of service providers and peers. Architects and IT leaders must consider carrier-neutral data center interconnection as a digital business enabler.
Gartner highlights key topics:
? Digital business will require the integration of a wide variety of applications and information sources. Some will be traditional customer-owned and on-premises, while others will involve new data types and sources, as well as third-party data feeds.
? It is unlikely that enterprises will be able to build rich digital business applications based solely on a traditional on-premises data center, with a limited number of data sources and applications.
? The ability to integrate multiple applications, data types and data sources in a secure, predictable, lower-latency fashion will spell the difference between digital business success and failure.
