The way we work has shifted to more flexible remote and hybrid models — where, when, and how we work has morphed into a flexible matrix of places, times, and devices. Though this transformation may have been evolving for some time, it has recently been turbo-charged by the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies that we're able to successfully pivot to a temporary remote work environment now face a myriad of new technical challenges to support a more flexible workforce for the long term.
Businesses will need to adapt and rework their infrastructure to meet the new challenges and stay ahead of the game, from security and reliability to performance and access.
An agile infrastructure, simply defined, is setting up your infrastructure in such a way today that allows you to innovate faster in the future. Readying your infrastructure for continuous delivery, continuous improvement, and early failing will ultimately drive new business value, reduce time to market and enable sustainable growth.
If 2020 taught us one thing, it's that we can't really be prepared for every challenge that confronts us. But you can prepare your organization to be flexible and innovative so that you are better prepared for the next challenge.
