Over the next several years, IDC expects enterprises will continue to increase both the percentage of virtualized datacenter workloads and the density of Virtual Machines (VMs) on physical servers while continuing to maintain many single-purpose systems. Simultaneously, many organizations will add public and/or private cloud services to their enterprise infrastructure mix. To make the most effective use possible of this dynamic and heterogeneous infrastructure environment, IT teams will need to shift to a more policy-based, automated approach to managing the building, provisioning, migration, monitoring, measuring, and securing of corporate workloads.
