  2. Will it be fair to understand that getting more percentage of infrastructure services if it moves up, would that put some sort of pressure on the margin profile of the business?

  3. How to flexibly migrate computation and data between the cloud and the edge (devices, gateways) in order to balance computation, latency and power consumption requirements?

  4. How can companies ensure that sensitive data stays secure in light of current and ongoing transformations, while also operating within the realm of regulatory compliance?

  5. Is it your goal to deliver an agile network that can dynamically align with business needs and respond to the pressures of Cloud, Big Data, and Workplace and Mobility?

  6. Which utility pricing option allows hardware usage rights to be shared among servers, allowing resources to be deactivated in one system and activated in another?

  7. Are you able to pass a security audit to ensure that applications, databases, and servers are all protected in both the virtual and physical environment?

  8. What obstacles or challenges may impede your ability to deploy or derive value from your data-driven marketing and media initiatives in the year ahead?

  9. How can IT address your organizations pain points, from manual processes to problems with product quality to the cost of regulatory compliance?

  10. How do you transform the opportunities of the digital age into effective strategies for data center consolidation, migration, and relocation?
