Responding to growing market and business demands, IT organizations worldwide are in the midst of a massive shift in how they perceive, build, manage and support the infrastructure, applications, data, and services that run business operations and customer experiences. The rise of social, mobile, analytics and cloud are driving the need for a faster pace of business innovation. Those and other forces are prompting organizations to look towards technology to advance business transformation.

These changes will require a new vision and operating model for IT infrastructure and service delivery—one that is far more responsive, adaptive, scalable and efficient than yesterday’s version.

Transform to Better Perform is a new global thought leadership initiative developed by the Business Performance Innovation Network. It is dedicated to helping business leaders, IT organizations, data professionals and technology providers explore the transformation of the data center into cloud-based environments that meet today’s business needs.

The initiative brings together new thinking, tools and resources to drive greater conversation and interaction around this important discussion. Through the initiative, we deliver survey-based research reports, strategic briefs, video content, face-to-face discussions, white papers, web interactions and other tools to help executives understand and prioritize data center and IT transformation. In addition, these professionals can network and communicate their points of few through our virtual community, the Frontline Feedback Forum.
