Developing an Intelligent Infrastructure

In three phases—automation and orchestration; service orientation; and intelligence—an infrastructure moves from being reactive to proactive to predictive.

2 Service orientation PROACTIVE
3 Intelligence PREDICTIVE

Pre-phase 1: Standardization and consolidation

An essential prerequisite: Accelerate the standardization and consolidation of the infrastructure and application environment. Continue efforts to virtualize the server/operating system, database, storage and network.

Phase 1: Automation and orchestration

Taking the first step into intelligence in infrastructure services begins with the automation and orchestration of business processes, technologies and applications.

Phase 2: Service orientation

From the perspective of intelligent infrastructure services, a business is a network of interconnected capabilities or services to be integrated. Creating a generalized service orientation perspective is thus the next essential phase of the overall journey.

Phase 3: Intelligence

The final phase is integrating advanced analytics capabilities with automation and service integration to make the infrastructure itself smarter and more autonomous—that is, capable of taking provisioning or corrective steps with little or no human intervention.
