Impacts and Recommendations

  • Discovery-style tools make BI easier for resource-constrained midsize enterprises by reducing the dependency on the IT staff for certain BI tasks
  • WLAN managed services, instead of an on-premises WLAN solution, can enable midsize enterprises to free up time spent on supporting infrastructures and refocus scarce IT resources on projects that make the business better
  • Storage efficiency technologies like thin provisioning can help midsize enterprises to dramatically improve utilization rates and postpone storage hardware acquisitions
