Why enterprise firms should develop and continually revise their IT strategy to avoid miss-directing capital. Many data centers are in need of upgrades while a long-term strategy is developed. Developing a right-fit long-term strategy takes times and expertise. As urgent needs pile up, including failing equipment, running out of space/power/cooling, etc. navigating the challenges could be daunting and quick upgrades could be costly and are too often not required in the long run. We will go over developing a short-term survival guide while developing and implementing a long-term strategy.
