  3. Globally, systems and infrastructure are reaching a breaking point. • Which are the IT infrastructure challenges today? • Explosion of data, transactions, and digitally-aware devices strains IT infrastructure and operations. • Exponential growth in communications subscribers and services exposes bandwidth limitations. • Supply inefficiencies and demand spikes tax energy and utility systems. • Clogged and congested roadways impact productivity. • Networks, supply chains, and borders face a proliferation of new risks and threats. Meanwhile, customer expectations and competitive pressures are increasing. 3 3

  4. In this smarter world, we need our infrastructure to propel us forward, not hold us back. Infrastructure that is instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. Infrastructure that brings together business and IT to create new possibilities. MobilityInfrastructure Facilities Infrastructure Production Infrastructure TechnologyInfrastructure Communications Infrastructure + + + + We need a dynamic infrastructure. 4

  5. A dynamic infrastructure addresses today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities. IMPROVE SERVICE Not only ensuring high availability and quality of existing services, but also meeting customer expectations for real-time, dynamic access to innovative new services. REDUCE COST MANAGE RISK Dynamic Infrastructure Not only addressing today’s security, resiliency, and compliance challenges, but also preparing for the new risks posed by an even more connected and collaborative world. Not just containing operational cost and complexity, but achieving breakthrough productivity gains through virtualization, optimization, energy stewardship, and flexible sourcing. 5
