Mastering the Business of Data Centers

A Composite Analysis: Mastering the Business of IT Infrastructure Service Delivery

Enterprises are ever more dependent on IT service delivery, which in turn depends on data center facilities. As a result of the evolving IT service demand, enterprises have had to re-evaluate not just the physical plant itself, but their overall operational approach to the facility simply by getting to the key data center sourcing question “buy or build?”. But it can be difficult for internal facilities management to view value-added services, marketing, and sales competencies as core to their operations.

In an important sense, this circumstance puts colocation providers at an advantage as they already operate their data centers as a business (DCaaB). This different perspective on data centers reflects the understanding that every operation is directly exposed to business users and their management.
