Most organizations possess an obsolete datacenter cites Study


Braced with the upswing of mobile and cloud computing, most organizations from their ends lack the IT infrastructure quintessential to be able to respond quickly to front office and customer needs, as stated by a new study courtesy, Softchoice, a North American technology solutions and services source, and VMware, the industry-leading virtualization software company.

* 46 percent of organizations still have no hybrid cloud capabilities.
