The Rise of the Application Infrastructure. ANS Insight.


Digital Transformation, Business Insight

In the agile IT industry have we transformed into an Application Infrastructure Provider?

More and more I find myself referring to ANS as an Application Infrastructure provider, most of our engagements now begin with a readiness assessment to which we must start with IT’s sole purpose in life – Efficiency. Organisations are looking to develop, modernise and deploy their business applications FASTER.

Efficiency is gained by applications which in turn need somewhere to live. The enterprise today has many applications of varying ages that fundamentally just want to rely on a guaranteed infrastructure. They are looking for an infrastructure that standardises and optimises the delivery of IT components.

Applications that hold true intellectual property cannot be fulfilled by a simple SAAS model and have performance & reliability requirements that we can’t always achieve with public cloud. For these applications we must offer a true private cloud with all the look and feel of a public cloud. This infrastructure will allow enterprises to run, modernise and develop business critical applications in a robust, secure environment. IT teams must be allowed to transform into business enablers who can now use their wealth of talent and capability to focus on the development of innovation and industry leading service rather than time spent on daily management or maintenance.

It is clear that it is no longer just about keeping up with the evolution of technology. For companies to stand out and create innovation it is what you do over and above that accelerates business performance. To this end, I feel our real value to our customers is to provide a RAPID Converged Infrastructure for applications whether it be Private Cloud, Complex Hosting or Hyperscalers.
