At Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2019

For infrastructure & operations leaders redefining their roles and value propositions is critical to success in today’s rapidly advancing digital environment. But the big question remains: how quickly can you put in place the necessary skills to help your organization build out its digital future? See how to address the growing I&O skills gap by developing talent from within and creating the digital dexterity today’s business demands.

"By 2022, 80% of I&O organizations that fail to develop servant leadership competencies will not meet their digital transformation goals."

Gartner Predicts

Infrastructure and operations (I&O) organizations in the digital era are on the cusp of dramatic change. From the death of the data center to the artificial intelligence (AI) revolution, every new wave of digital has a profound impact on the way I&O operates. And as I&O rapidly evolves from a support function to a strategic one, IT teams are no longer seen as service providers, but instead as enablers of business transformation. 

How Infrastructure and Operations Can Enable Digital Change

From the death of the data center to the AI revolution, every innovation in the digital era is impacting the Infrastructure & Operations (I&O) organizations. With the evolution of I&O from a support function to a strategic one, IT teams have become enablers of business transformation and are no longer seen as service providers.

To improve efficiency, increase productivity and enable digital business transformation, I&O leaders must adapt their organizations around changing CIO priorities.

Gartner Top 10 Trends Impacting Infrastructure & Operations for 2020

Infrastructure and operations (I&O) has seen significant disruption in recent years, spurred by the rapid growth of the cloud and the shift to hybrid IT. A business located in the U.S. might host its website on public cloud infrastructure while storing customer information and backups across private cloud infrastructure in data centers in India and in the U.K.

Today, infrastructure is everywhere, and the pace of change for I&O will only increase in 2020 as IT leaders face pressure to more quickly create, deploy, manage and govern dynamic application environments.
