The Convergence of "3S" - Security, Storage, and System Management: Opportunities and Challenges for Outsourcing Services
Source: IDG (International Data Group)
The outsourcing services market is transforming rapidly and service suppliers move inside an increasingly interdependent technological framework, with differentiated strategies. Organizations need solutions that offer greater visibility, transparency, and integration in the management of IT systems. These functionalities are therefore increasingly embedded in the infrastructure, making the borders between security, storage, and systems management vague. The driving factor is undoubtedly security, which is pervasive and enabling to the point of intertwining with other IT areas (storage, system, and network management). The interactions with other disciplines will be strong to a greater or lesser degree depending on technological trends, supplier propositions, and company approach.
