Business Issues, Converged Infrastructure

Converged infrastructure a hot topic for CIOs

Blog-post by,
Community Manager

Our weekly Twitter chat yesterday zeroed in defining converged infrastructure (CI) and the rationale behind it. CI is a hot topic for CIOs and is being driven by the search for efficiencies and better productivity in the context of cloud, Big Data and mobile.

First the numbers for yesterday's chat: 32 participants and 230 Tweets (at least three were CIOs).

Our questions were: what is CI?; how big a priority is it for 2014? and what is hyper-CI?

Use the hashtag #CIOchat to view the full stream of 230 Tweets between 2-3 p.m. EDT Thursday. We'll be back next week.
