In this report, Info-Tech Research Group focuses on five trends that will demand the attention of the infrastructure and operations manager in 2017. They require your attention because of threat oropportunity, or both. These are not necessarily new trends. Cloud computing, for example, didn't just land on us. But in each trend, there is something going on - beyond the hype and buzzwords - that is important.

Infrastructure trends reviewed in the report:

1. Reclaim the Edge of the Network

In networks, north/south is increasingly giving way to east/west. Most traffic no longer needs to be routed through head office. Software is changing the WAN game, enabling this detour and the ability to intelligently direct traffic across multiple connections. Organizations now have the power to monitor and guide traffic across their network connections, giving them more leverage vis-a-vis ISPs and facilitating the reclamation of the edge of the network.

2. Move to IT-as-a-Service Broker (or be left behind)

If you build it, they will come. But what if someone else builds it better? The business model ischanging. The fact is that infrastructure and operations no longer build all of their own capabilities.Increasingly, services off the rack are perfectly fine - no tailor necessary. That's not to say, however,that a personal shopper would be a negative…

3. The Hybrid Cloud is the Elastic Cloud

With the growth of public and private cloud options, many organizations have a consistent goal of hybrid cloud. But having virtual servers hosted on multiple internal and external services is not atrue hybrid cloud. Numerous developments, from convergence to software-defined infrastructure, are paving the way to fluid and elastic hybrid clouds in 2017.

4. DevOps is Extending to the Enterprise

DevOps is a marriage of development and operations, leveraging cross-functional teams to facilitate continuous delivery (Ebert et al. 2016, 94). It's no longer the exclusive domain of big players with agile cloud development efforts. Infrastructure and operations managers will be tasked with staffing the Ops side of this paradigm: coordinating the resources necessary to conduct software development in a cloud, and at a more granular level, architecting support of application containers according to business value and specific suitability.

5. Self-Service Rules Powered by Automation

Service desk technicians are expensive to employ, and IT budgets are flat. The solution? Push more of the service desk's responsibilities to end users. Whether it's self-service portals, automated incident response, or even reliance on power users, it's clear that self-service is here to stay. Infrastructure and operations leaders will have to contend with this new model of service, the service desk manager will have to assess the skills of both technicians and end users, and IT budgets will have to be reworked to fit this reality. But enablement and BYOD come at a very real cost. When end users are empowered to make their own choices, who is responsible for supporting them when they have problems?

For each trend we provide the following:

  • Recommendations
  • Synopsis
  • Statistics, signals, and drivers
  • Scenario Analysis
  • Case Study
  • Risk, Uncertainty, and Outlook

Executive Summary

As an IT leader, you're pulled in several directions at once: fighting fires, keeping the lights on, managing people-there are only so many hours in a day!

Add the challenge of keeping abreast of new developments in the IT space, and it's easy to understand why you sometimes fall behind.

But falling behind can be disastrous. IT leaders that don't keep up with the pace of innovation are likely to see their roles diminish or disappear. Don't fall into the complacency trap.
