Digital infrastructure, the totality of datacenter
facilities, IT assets, and service providers employed by
enterprises to deliver business value, is being transformed.
IT demand is skyrocketing, while tolerance for inefficiency
is plummeting. Traditional lines between facilities and IT
are blurring. The edge to core landscape is simultaneously
erupting and being reshaped. Enterprises of all sizes need
to adapt to remain competitive — and even survive. Third

and vital role, enabled by advancements in technology and
evolution of business models. IT vendors and service
providers need to understand the changing landscape to
remain relevant and capitalize on new opportunities
