Today's data centers have become highly evolved, with virtualization being widely deployed and many organizations starting to move toward the cloud. These technologies offer tremendous benefits such as increased flexibility, reduced capital and operational expenditures, and reduced hardware footprints in the data center. However, as with any change, challenges, both anticipated and unanticipated, can arise. These challenges, if not met head on, have the potential to slow down and, in some cases, derail progress. To survive and remain competitive in today's evolving technology landscape, businesses have to adapt, not only by adopting these new technologies, but also by successfully meeting the challenges that come with them.

This paper will identify some of those challenges and discuss how Symantec can help address them to allow administrators to provide more
dynamic and resilient IT environments.
