Converged Infrastructure implies the ability to pool resources, streamline management, and in the end, the ability to more rapidly and flexibly provision data center infrastructure and services. If planned and executed well, convergence not only lowers complexity for customers but also enables shared-service model of computing - path towards private cloud. This presentation provides the blueprint for developing a detailed plan based on objective analysis and capabilities most relevant for converged infrastructure adaption within your data center. You will hear how HP Converged Cloud Capability Model speeds-up the planning phase across people, process and technology. (presented at HP Discover, Las Vegas, 2013)

Domains Addresses resources used to plan, manage and improve infrastructure service delivery from project-based tools and information to standard, integrated tools / processes and information collection for end-to-end management aligned to the business. Technology & Architecture IT Operations Management Culture & IT Staff Management Tools & Processes Addresses the IT organizational structure, roles, responsibilities, work environment, etc. to move from technology-oriented to a more service-oriented, business centric environment. Moving IT as a cost center (constrained to annual allocated budget) to an IT governance model that provides real time alignment of supply and demand with a consumption-based funding model.

The information contained herein is subject to change without notice. 26 CI-CM Stages of Capability • Automatic management and reallocation of infrastructure based on business process needs • IT becomes a trusted business innovation partner • Hybrid Delivery - Infrastructure is offered as a combination of public and private cloud environments Flow management tooling allows the customer to combine multiple sources for IT capability into one integrated usage of IT resources • Service Enabled - Infrastructure offered as a service, with tiered service levels, supported by service centric integrated IT processes. • Standardized - Standard technologies and architectures, standard management tools and processes, technology-based with Rationalized technologies and architecture, rationalized management tools and processes, with cross functional IT infrastructure expert teams. • Silo - Project-based decisions and dedicated infrastructure, Ad Hoc management tools and processes, technology-based IT organization, cost center managed to budget. This delivery model can be found in most of IT organizations. It’s the traditional IT delivery model.
