IT has undergone a huge transformation in recent times. Businesses today are no longer looking at IT to support daily business operations - rather, they're looking at IT to run the business. Like many IT managers, probably feeling the pressure to improve operations, cut costs, and respond to a level of unprecedented change - all at the same time. One may be looking to consolidate or enhance system's scalability so that one can do more with less. One might be looking for more processing power to better manage memory and I/O intensive applications or to fuel the increasing demand for business intelligence capabilities. Or, maybe feelings constrained by expensive proprietary offerings and want a standards-based operating environment that's just as reliable but more cost-effective and flexible.
