  • 10. 10 Data center consolidation restructures your IT costs for continued growth A commodities and securities dealer needed to transition to a new office location without service interruptions. IBM helped the organization implement and migrate to a new, state-of-the-art data center to support more than 1,000 traders and 500 back-office users without incurring downtime that would negatively affect business processes. Throughout, IBM provided expertise in data center construction and IT relocation processes. We brought together a diverse group of internal resources to deliver project management services, consultancy services and physical relocation of IT systems and network compo- nents. We helped the company quickly design and build a new large-scale data center and network infrastructure, relocate critical IT components and sensitive data, andHelping avoid service interruptions while migrating to a move the existing applications and IT systems.
