This requires management of their current IT infrastructure and applications while optimizing them for maximum performance. At the same time, they need to invest in and implement modern and disruptive technologies such as cloud, automation, and big data analytics – while integrating the new technologies with legacy or standardized applications and infrastructure.
Successful management of existing systems while migrating to new technologies requires an in-depth understanding of the business goals and requirements, both the legacy and new technologies, and substantial planning.
