IDC - Redefining Data Centre Boundaries for the 3rd Platform

Digital transformation is an imperative for enterprises worldwide. Driven by an explosion of value creation, made possible by interconnection-first IT architectures, data centre strategies for the 3rd Platform must be dynamic and provide flexibility for pervasive customer engagement at the edge. An Interconnection Oriented Architecture™ can be used to achieve the aims of digital transformation by connecting people, locations, clouds and data where the physical and virtual worlds meet at the digital edge in a distributed topology.


  • Worldwide spending on digital transformation initiatives is expected to reach $2.2 trillion in 2019
  • By 2020, 50 percent of the G2000 will see the majority of their businesses depend on an ability to create digitally enhanced products, services and experiences
  • Companies that do not implement digital transformation initiatives will struggle to respond to changing market and customer demands in the 3rd Platform era

Successful enterprises pursuing digital transformation on an interconnection platform will redefine the boundaries of the data centre to encompass increasingly valuable cloud services, external networks, customers, partners and employees.
