Any separation between IT infrastructure components is an opportunity for failure. A network link, for instance, that has multiple cables and devices along its path also has multiple points that can compromise the connection. The aim of converging IT components into fewer – or even singular – solutions is to create greater efficiencies by reducing those potential barriers to success.

Convergence is about integrating two or more computing technologies into a unified solution. The trend toward such aggregation has been ongoing for some time. For example, telecom equipment manufacturers found that, by using a modular approach, they could slide function cards into multiservice switches to handle any and every communications technology that came along. With this approach, packet processing could be done across the backplane rather than through a scattered network of cables and devices.
