Enterprises are increasingly adopting composable infrastructure solutions to reduce capital expenditure and improve infrastructure utilization. Composable infrastructure allows dynamically assembling and disassembling infrastructure resources based on application demands. This enables optimized allocation of pooled resources and improves infrastructure efficiency. Further, composable infrastructure aids flexibility and agility by rapidly provisioning, re-provisioning and upgrading infrastructure. The ability to integrate existing hardware with software-defined infrastructure is also driving adoption. The market is expected to be positively impacted by the rapid growth in data volumes and infrastructure virtualization across industries.

Market Drivers: AI and Automation Spur Need for Composability

Over the past decade, organizations have invested heavily in adopting new technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and others to enhance their operations. While these technologies promise benefits, they have also created new challenges for businesses. As organizations deploy disparate systems and applications to gain specific capabilities, their existing IT infrastructure has become complex with many isolated silos housing different workloads. This makes the management of the infrastructure inefficient and costly. It also impacts the ability of businesses to leverage these new technologies together and extract further value.

Composable infrastructure is emerging as a solution to address these challenges. With a composable approach, organizations can break away from rigid, fixed hardware configurations. Instead, they get flexibility and agility to deploy the exact resources - compute, storage, and networking - that are required for different workloads on demand. This allows workloads and applications to be automated and orchestrated in a simple and automated manner. It enables new capabilities to be added without significant disruption to existing environments. The infrastructure can also adapt in real-time as business and technology needs change. This is especially useful considering how Artificial Intelligence and automation projects involve constant experimentation, testing and optimization. With composable infrastructure, resources can be incredibly responsive to these dynamic needs. IT teams have visibility into the entire infrastructure and can monitor, analyze, and improve resource utilization over time. This helps maximize investment in tools that drive modernization in a cost-effective way.

Market Driver: Evolving Enterprise Digitalization Strategies

It has become imperative today for enterprises of all types and sizes to digitally transform their business models and operations. This recognizes how digital technologies now underpin interactions with customers, business processes, product/service design, and overall competitiveness. Forward-looking organizations have drawn up aggressive strategies around cloud, mobility, Internet of Things, analytics, and others to remain relevant in disrupted industry landscapes. However, traditional IT infrastructure models have not kept pace with these dynamic digitalization goals. Legacy setups comprise fragmented, siloed, and inflexible environments that inhibit modern workloads and innovation. They are also expensive to scale up or reconfigure on demand.

Composable infrastructure offers an optimized approach purpose-built for enterprise digital transformation strategies. With resources that can be allocated and automated in software to changing needs, it allows IT teams to deliver the right infrastructure exactly when and where applications require it.

Market Challenges: High initial investment

Legacy infrastructure poses issues as organizations have sunk costs in traditional rigid systems that are difficult to replace. Additionally, integrating composable solutions can be complex and requires significant changes to workflows. Security is also a concern as this new, flexible approach may introduce vulnerabilities if not implemented carefully. Adoption requires IT teams to learn new skills to manage pools of dynamic resources rather than static systems. For many organizations, the upfront costs of migrating to composable infrastructure are seen as prohibitive despite longer term savings and benefits.

Market Opportunities: Edge & 5G network expansion

As organizations shift to scale applications up or down on demand, composable solutions allow for optimal resource utilization and efficiency. This improves capabilities for rapid application development and deployment. Composable infrastructure facilitates innovation through agility, enabling IT to keep pace with business needs.
