What Does It Take To Implement SDDC?

Organizations have long been frustrated with slow delivery of new applications and IT’s common lack of ability to optimally operate, manage and update these applications. As a result, the concept of the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) picked up tremendous traction in 2013 and it is safe to predict that the SDDC will become one of the dominating trends in enterprise IT in 2014. At the core of the SDDC is the belief that in order to better serve the business, IT infrastructure--internal and external--must be controlled centrally and become radically aligned along application and service requirements.

This EMA research study, which surveyed 235 "visionary" companies, aims at demystifying and dissecting the SDDC concept from a technical as well as from a process, organizational and cultural perspective. Specifically, this research report covers:
  • The Core of the Software-Defined Data Center
  • SDDC and Traditional Data Center Challenges
  • Business Drivers of the SDDC
  • Investment Priorities for 2014 and Beyond
  • ROI Expectations
  • The Dawn of Software-Defined Storage
  • Networking
  • Cloud
  • Open Standards and the SDDC
  • Security
