Light with no lamps
‘Light with no lamps,’ to paraphrase Thomas Rau, architect and innovator. Several years ago, Rau posed Philips a challenge: ‘Give me light and I’ll pay for it. Whether it’s natural light or a lamp, I don’t mind how you do it.’ The end result was a ‘pay per lux’ lighting plan that assumes users aren’t actually interested in lamps; they’re only interested in the light that’s produced. And that’s what DCaaS – Data Centre as a Service – does. It’s a utility model that supplies computing power and data centre technology as a service, just like electricity and water. As CIO, you no longer need to worry about the technical details, operation or maintenance – how or where the data centre is running – but just that it’s running, with all the desired functionality and flexibility that your company needs in these rapidly evolving times.
You can focus on what really counts: using technological innovation to help meet your organization’s business challenges.
