IT Infrastructure Vendors Leverage Analytics and AI to Enhance Sustainability Services

IT infrastructure vendors are moving beyond table stakes sustainability services around asset recycling to more sophisticated offerings that help IT organizations achieve specific goals, such as allocating workloads to optimize emissions or electricity consumption. These offerings will provide significant value to organizations that seek better control over their company’s carbon footprint; however, TBR believes the ability to track sustainability across multivendor tech stacks versus a single brand will ultimately provide greater value to users.

AI Impact on IT Infrastructure in 2024

2023 was a challenging year for server and storage OEMs, marked by weak demand across enterprise and SMB customers. The market recovery at large will be a slow one in 2024, partially accelerated by the boom in demand for AI-enabled compute and, to a lesser extent, customers’ desire to rebalance their portfolios with less reliance on costly public cloud services.
