Over the past few weeks, we have been exploring how digital intelligence can help to streamline our global utility, food and traffic systems, making them more efficient and responsible. But you may be surprised to hear that global Information Technology Infrastructure is in need of an intelligence makeover as well.
It’s not a problem with the technology per se. Servers, storage, PCs, software, networking gear, the Internet — all will continue to become more powerful, affordable and available. The problem is how all this technology is currently configured into systems. The way data centers are designed and operated. The way applications are developed and deployed. The way servers and PCs are managed, upgraded and kept secure.

In this episode of Building a Smarter Planet, we hear from four experts on the subject of IT Infrastructure – where it is today and what it is delivering, new developments in functionality, and what we need to be prepared for moving forward. Listen in as Bernie Meyerson, the CTO of IBM Systems and Technology, Donna Dillenberger of IBM Research, Frank Gens, senior vice president and chief analyst with IDC, and James Governor, co-founder of IT analyst firm Redmonk help uncover some of the facts.
