Software is the New Hardware

- By Samson David - Senior Vice President and the Global Head for Cloud, Infrastructure and Security, Infosys

Enterprises today are at an interesting inflection point. Numerous enterprise resources are stuck with “keeping the lights on.” These enterprises are now looking to leap forward by freeing up those limited resources, and allocate them to re-imagining, re-defining and re-writing possibilities and converting these into newer realities of business. GAFTA (Google-Apple-Facebook-Twitter-Amazon) group, found a way to abstract and codify this complexity. The key question is how can business organizations do a GAFTA? The solution is - businesses need to find the right balance between “Humanics,” “Mechanics” and “Economics” to scale new horizons and convert possibilities into realities, by leveraging the power of software. Software is indeed the new hardware!
