Sounds like a homework question...Cbut I will give you a brief answer anyway.

From an infrastructure perspective, it is always more efffiecient to concentrate reources around datacentres, rather than spread out among departments. Centralized datacentres will require fewer admins per server, allow some use of automated tools etc.

The concerns are that once an organization like a data centre reaches a certain size, it tends to do what its always done, and has a life and direction of its own. The bigger it is the farther it is from the end customer. In order to overcome this you can get input from key users, perhaps have user groups, get input from the planning teams in other departments etc.
