Gartner® Predicts 2022: Driving Toward Digital Infrastructure Platforms 

Gartner® Predicts 2022: Driving Toward Digital Infrastructure Platforms, examines “how infrastructure and operations leaders will drive digital transformation by increasing automation and consumption-based procurement of infrastructure.” 

At Cyxtera, we understand that today’s on-demand consumers and dynamic economic landscape makes it difficult for IT leaders to modernize systems while continuing to balance budgets. Traditional business models are changing to an always on, on-demand mindset, a shift accommodating convenience and immediacy, requiring businesses to upgrade their infrastructure to keep up.

Smarter and more agile than traditional data centers, Cyxtera provides intelligently automated and deeply connected infrastructure to businesses around the world – enabling them to scale faster, become more agile, maintain control and reduce costs. 

As Gartner explains, “Digital transformation demands transformation in how infrastructures are consumed and managed. The percentage of consumption-based procurement of compute and storage capacity (outside of public cloud) will quadruple in the next few years. Likewise, implementations of infrastructure automation will increase significantly. While expansion and migration to cloud computing continues to grow, and new applications tend to be cloud-native, application portfolios will remain, if anything, more diverse and more hybrid.”

Gartner® Predicts 2022: Driving Toward Digital Infrastructure Platforms includes:

  • Key findings around digital transformation from a recent Gartner CEO survey
  • Recommendations for Infrastructure & Operation leaders responsible for data center infrastructure 
  • Findings from a Gartner survey that shows that the top challenge/threat for IT Infrastructure & Operation leaders is insufficient skills/resources.
