Agile and innovative companies like Netflix, Instagram, Amazon, Airbnb, and Uber have used exponential technologies to completely disrupt their industries. But some of the largest industries in the world have fallen prey to these and other disruptive companies. And most of them didn’t even see it coming. The convergence of exponential technologies, along with bold thinking and the willingness to take risks, is completely altering the business landscape. And that landscape is changing at an accelerating pace.
Disruption is occurring far more quickly than ever before. On average, an S&P 500 company is being replaced every 2 weeks, and over 40% of today’s Fortune 500 companies on the S&P 500 will no longer exist within 10 years. The only options are to disrupt yourself or be disrupted by your competition. Which will you choose? If you choose the former, do you know how to proceed? This guide shares strategies you can employ today to start future-proofing your company.

More companies today are looking to expand beyond traditional means of decision support, and are exploring how AI can help them find and manage the “unknown unknowns” in our fast-paced business environment.

Intelligent N+X Redundancy, Placement Affinities, & Future Proofing in the Virtualized Data Center
Virtualization brought about the ability to simplify business continuity management in IT. Workload portability and data replication capabilities mean that physical infrastructure failures no longer need impact application services, and they can rapidly be recovered even in the event of complete site failure.
However, Enterprises and Service Providers face new challenges ensuring they have enough compute capacity in their virtualized data centers to support their business continuity requirements, while at the same time not over provisioning infrastructure capacity resulting in unnecessary capital expenditure.
In a growing business everyone – and everything – counts. You literally can’t afford underperforming employees, and lack of direction can be fatal. If you want long-term success, you really need to focus on where you’re going, what you need to get there, and put plans in place to make that happen.
