Is IT suffering from Stockholm Syndrome?

If you've been involved with infrastructure refreshes, especially with storage, you are probably intimately familiar with the corresponding pain and agony.

Meanwhile, companies such as AHCS and their EZVerify platform have evolved beyond this old-school refresh strategy. Rather than spending a year developing a five-year strategy, they have adopted a more nimble mindset that allows for agility, stability and an ongoing ambition to permanently think beyond the boundaries of typical.
