IT managers frequently "Inherit" the infrastructure they must manage. Often, that infrastructure is fragmented in information "Silos" that impede the process of virtualization of the server hardware - and consolidation of workloads for more efficient management. The drive for improved efficiency in IT infrastructure has kicked off a search for technology components that can be leveraged across multiple software environments, enabling initiatives for workload consolidation, improved utilization of resources, and efficient operations.

IDC defines dynamic IT as a flexible IT infrastructure that can easily and quickly support changes in business processes and business requirements.
