"2020 has compelled business leaders to rethink their relationship with digital infrastructure. It has compelled organizations to make a shift in thinking of 'infrastructure that supports the business' to 'digital infrastructure that drives the business' — no longer can business leaders view digital infrastructure as an overhead. They must think of it as the foundation on which the business can become resilient and stay differentiated in the next normal," said Ashish Nadkarni, group VP, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies at IDC. "Enterprises must invest strategically in their digital infrastructure to bring about a cultural, technology, workforce, and paradigm shift in the organization, thereby enabling the business outcomes they strive for," said Rohit Mehra, VP, Network Infrastructure at IDC.
