It dives into detailed explanations of the why, who, what, and how of converged systems and converged system deployment strategies. IDC believes this information can serve as a starting point to understanding the potential role of converged systems within your organization and allow key IT stakeholders within your organization to make a more informed decision regarding converged systems. "Today's IT organizations are increasingly being forced to balance greater end-user demands, often with shrinking datacenter resources. This places incredible strain on the IT organization and its infrastructure. Increasingly, IT organizations are looking to leverage the benefits of converged systems in order to alleviate the strain of today's workflow demands," said Kevin Permenter, senior research analyst within IDC's Server team.
