Why Read This Report

In the past decade, news media companies have witnessed substantial disruptive changes in their marketplace, spurring them to significantly accelerate their IT transformation initiatives. As we have seen in other industries facing similar market conditions, transforming an organization's infrastructure and operations (I&O) is key to addressing these challenges. In 2008, News UK was one of a few news media companies embarking on infrastructure transformation. The firm's data center transformation delivered a modern, agile, lean, and resilient infrastructure in a colocated data center with automated disaster recovery and business continuity. But transformation is never easy, and News UK's journey was no exception. This Forrester case study examines News UK's successful approach to data center transformation to help organizations facing similar projects.
