Seminar Description

The business model for the technical infrastructures running applications, data, audio and multimedia has undergone a gradual change in the past few years. The definition of the services, along with the services themselves have been hardened – they are metric driven, transparent, based on granular cost structures and often outsourced. Monitoring has improved, reducing outages and providing better control. The green theme is a business requirement. Infrastructure modernization often pays off rapidly. Security, including cybersecurity, has become increasingly sophisticated. Mobility is a very important business driver – it demands specific solutions suitable for the distributed workforce and ubiquitous customers. Recently the adoption to the new models has crossed the inflection points in many disciplines – cloud, distributed cybersecurity, as-a-service models, software-defined networks and servers, virtualization and automation. This WSTA seminar puts these technology evolutions in the context of the underlying business drivers emerging from the demanding industry.
