If one ask business executives today what they need most from their organizations, the majority would cite the ability to respond quickly to changing conditions. Shifting markets, constant communications, and competitors approaching from all corners of the globe converge to make business move and change at the speed of light. Failure to respond quickly can lead to decreased market share, lost revenue, and competitive takeover. As a result, today's businesses want to become virtual enterprises that are agile enough to shift on a dime by leveraging "information centers" rather than legacy data centers. This has obvious implications for the IT departments that power business.
