2021. What an interesting year. With the world turned upside down by a pandemic that seemingly had its sights set on...
Striim: When data is on the move you need a reliable streaming platform.
It’s a hybrid world:
Ask anyone who owns a hybrid vehicle and they will wax lyrical about the upside of having electric power when required and then the enjoyment that comes with a combustion engine for backup. No matter the distances covered, they don’t need to be anxious about running out of battery power.
When it comes to IT, the inroads cloud computing has made into IT operations is hard to ignore. The combination of traditional systems with resources based within a cloud services offering bring together the best of both worlds. The security of the data center with the elasticity of resources only a cloud can provide. For the first time, hybrid IT reduces the anxieties that might arise from concerns about having enough resources to handle whatever is thrown at IT.
It’s pursuit of digital transformation:
Photographers will talk endlessly about the transformation that digital cameras have brought and roadside billboards that look like giant television screens are being exploited ad nauseam in their owners’ pursuit of selling products and services. Even the staid legal profession has turned to the digital world in their quest to secure more clients.
Approach anyone in business and you will see a digital device nearby. Whether it is a smartphone, a complex machine or even a simple sensor, the intrusion of digital technologies into everyday life has only accelerated during the global pandemic. Time normally devoted to traditional systems analysis has been overshadowed by the desire to tap into every aspect of business operations.
The need for a platform:
Combine hybrid computing with digital transformation and add the ever-growing presence of Artificial Intelligence and you see the rise of a fabric of resources where data is always on the move. As much as some enterprises attempted to pursue a one-vendor strategy, not too dissimilar to when IBM mainframes anchored all of IT, it became harder to adjust to a world that is heterogeneous by design.
Information sought after by departments within the organization is available almost for free with just a few taps on the keyboard. It has become too hard to ignore interfacing with the many services on offer from today’s cloud providers. Data will come from anywhere and continue to be on the move but perhaps more importantly, data integration becomes the driver for better solutions supporting this fabric of resources.
