I’m pleased to share Your Strategic Guide to IT 2012: The New
Cornerstones, on behalf of Dell.
According to Computerworld blogger Eric Berridge, the fundamental rules
of business are being rewritten by technology and the future is brimming
with possibility. Whether that future will be good or bad depends on an
organization’s ability to be agile. 1
Produced by the top editors of CIO, Computerworld, CSO, Info World,
ITworld and Network World, this digital spotlight explores the critical
technologies and challenges (such as Virtualization, Cloud, Mobile/Social
and the resulting Big Data phenomenon) underpinning the agile enterprise
in 2012 and beyond.
Virtualization, Cloud Computing (public, private or both) and
Mobile/Social are transformational technologies that all businesses need to
explore and adopt in order to maintain a competitive advantage. With that,
there will be an explosion of data that IT needs to make a priority—which
entails understanding and analyzing Big Data to find its value to the
business, however difficult that may be.
I call your attention to Dell’s Efficient IT solutions throughout this digital
spotlight. Learn how they helped customers such as Carnival Cruise Lines,
Salesforce.com and Accu Weather, Inc. manage data growth,
virtualization, secure mobile access and transitioning to the cloud. For
