Your plans for business growth and sustainability hinges on optimized technology that keeps your people productive.
IT departments are trying to transform themselves into lean, mean, business-focused operations keen on delivering the best value for the lowest cost. Is it an impossible dream? Not if you take care to link optimization efforts with business goals.
That doesn’t just mean squeezing every last drop of fiscal blood from the IT stone, through strategies like pooling servers, consolidating storage and packing WAN links to reduce bandwidth costs. It means reshaping IT by focusing on efficiently delivering the best possible value to the business based on their goals.
Optimization isn't just about cutting costs.
Tight budgets are no excuse. You can optimize without compromise.
It turns out that optimizing IT doesn’t mean simply burying your head in the budget with a paring knife. It requires a different frame of mind, instituting processes that stretch from the nuts and bolts of wringing extra packets out of existing WAN connections all the way up to the organization’s strategic goals.
If your strategy to optimize IT doesn't connect all the way up to business goals, how do you know where to focus?
Synch up with the business.
Without processes to continually ensure that you’re delivering the value the business needs, you could be optimizing areas you don’t need to—or not optimizing areas where you have the biggest opportunities.
Cost-management efforts must be linked to business strategy, so we put the processes in place to ensure we’re cutting correctly.
