DecisionPath® Optimization Services

Utilize your technology budgets to drive business strategy.

You’re wasting money. You just don’t know where.

Ensuring cost optimization for your IT landscape is getting more complicated. The evolution to digital business means IT departments need to look beyond simple expense-line trimming and instead focus on optimizing the business value of IT.

DecisionPath® Optimization Services make optimizing your technology spending easier by providing a comprehensive view of your entire IT landscape, so you can eliminate waste and reallocate investments to critical IT initiatives.

Cost optimization is an ongoing discipline, not a one-time exercise.

Cost optimization is a critical discipline in order for businesses to fund innovation. While you may have exhausted the low-hanging fruit for saving money, to be truly successful, cost optimization should be a continuous exploration of technology that adds business value.

By eliminating wasted spend on things that don’t add value to the business, IT teams can redirect the savings toward new technology investments.

Telecommunications

Most businesses do not have the expertise or bandwidth to effectively manage their telecom expenses. Without a comprehensive analysis of all bills and eligible credits, identifying where your business can cut costs is hard.

Our telecom optimization services help companies reduce telecom costs, improve operations, and simplify management – a challenge for even the most successful organizations.

Software Licensing and Support

What state are your software licenses in? Are they all earning their keep? Or are too many sitting idle, rolling from one renewal to the next, wasting money? And how much under-licensing is lurking in your network? Tackling these issues is a challenge, especially if you’re using multiple inventory technologies.

We give you the power to make every asset pay its way, reducing risk and generating huge cost savings. Effective software license optimization starts with full discovery, so redundant software can be reclaimed and redeployed to other users. Not to mention, optimizing your software estate saves you money.

Hardware Maintenance Support Agreements

With such financial strain on budgets, many organizations are opting out of support contracts. This can be a risky choice. And those that do opt in are not taking advantage of the opportunities to right-size or optimize their support services to their real requirements. This is often because enterprises have a lack of information regarding average price and performance data to determine if it is a “good deal”.

Plow Networks helps you understand your actual support needs and evaluate your current SLAs to determine if they still match these needs.

Hardware and Software Buying Strategy

We know you need a complete picture of your software and hardware costs for both on-premises and cloud environments. You need to manage large enterprise purchases of software and hardware and annual or monthly subscriptions for SaaS, as well as per-minute on-demand spend for public cloud.

This complexity can cause inefficiencies in IT spend. By optimizing your hardware and software buying strategy, you can eliminate waste and reallocate investments to critical IT initiatives.

Cloud Spend

As enterprises move more of their workloads into the cloud, IT organizations are struggling to manage the distribution of licenses across hybrid environments.

We help to minimize the complexity surrounding cloud license management and gain insight into the ongoing usage of your cloud implementations so you can effectively manage costs, maximize investments and quickly adapt to changing business priorities.
