Top 7 Predictions for the Connected Enterprise in 2017

Global IT transformation will trigger significant changes for several industries in the coming year, according to Equinix, Inc., the global interconnection and data center company. Given its footprint across 40 global markets and more than 8,000 customers, Equinix has data-driven insights into the key drivers pushing enterprises to succeed in the digital economy. This vantage point is enabled through the platform that connects established and emerging ecosystems of internet exchanges, content, trading, cloud, enterprise and big data providers.

Here’s a look at 2017 predictions for the connected enterprise, according to Equinix:

Cloud adoption has matured to an advanced stage where enterprises are increasingly relying more on cloud infrastructure. Enterprises are already using multiple clouds today, and the need to connect more diverse and traditionally divided ecosystems with demanding expectations around performance, user experience and seamless integration will push this trend more aggressively in the coming year.

2017 will be the tipping point, when the convergence of multiple clouds across the enterprise – data, applications, infrastructure and personal clouds – will fundamentally change the way people and businesses operate.

Business models are being disrupted, forcing changes in how enterprises operate in the digital economy. The convergence of multiple clouds will call for a natural extension of the corporate boundaries for today’s digital business to the edge – where users and data reside. This will be important for businesses to better engage with customers in real-time, leveraging social, mobile, analytics and cloud technologies.

Companies will move to connect their digital and physical worlds – to support business around the globe. As enterprises leverage multiple clouds, it can be challenging to manage solutions across different cloud environments from different vendors. If the right cloud management structure is not in place early, these operational issues could start stacking up at a rapid speed leading to severe issues impacting service delivery at the digital edge.

2017 will see the acceptance of an interconnected fabric among enterprises – residing in carrier neutral facilities – to create a central nervous system that connects all aspects of the digital business.
