  • 4. Is there a cost of doing nothing? • “Does “doing nothing” in this economic environment really have a cost? Absolutely. We’ve seen the results firsthand in the recent past. Consider, for example, the last recession, of 1998 to 2002. How many brands that were successful prior to the downturn emerged as viable leaders after the recovery? How many companies simply disappeared? And how many others lost significant brand equity? According to an analysis by McKinsey and Company, only 60 percent of companies that were considered brand leaders before the downturn retained a leadership position.1 We know that simply cutting costs will not necessarily give us a competitive advantage. If previous downturns taught us anything, it is that prudent cost reduction—combined with targeted investments—puts organizations in much better shape to exploit the difficult times and to emerge stronger, leaner, and more competitive when the economy rebounds.” HP • If your not making strategic investments that have a quick ROI your operational costs will either remain constant or maybe increase as hardware and software becomes older and unsupported.

  • 16. HP Ilo (Integrated Lights Out) • "Having to visit a remote server can easily cost $500 to $1,500 per incident. For many customers, iLO Advanced pays for itself on first use." • “Basically, there’s a small area on the (ProLiant) motherboard that’s purely dedicated to hardware management: it has its own Ethernet port and draws power from a line connected before the main power switch of the computer, so it always remains alive so long as the mains do. This web server (and there are other protocol interfaces) lets you see straight into the computer, even to view the POST boot screen. Want to flash the BIOS on the server? No problem, it can even manage this. All of this is delivered via a web-based interface, which is simplicity itself to use. Power down the server? No problem. Reconfigure the RAID array during the POST setup? Also, no problem. Install an OS from scratch? That’s a piece of cake, too. All I need to know is the IP address of the iLO2 port, and I’m home and dry.” - Jon Honeyball, President, Woodleyside Ltd • This is only available on Proliant servers from HP and the cost is about $399.00 for the software.

  • 27. EFax or Hosted Fax As a business person, you will most likely need to use a fax machine. If you do, you've probably experienced some of these problems: • The fax machine jammed in the middle of the transmission of an important contract. • Your fax machine ran out of paper when you were away from the office, while you were expecting an important document. • Your fax machine ran out of ink in the middle of receiving a fax • Your fax machine "swallowed" two or three pages at a time when transmitting a document, causing the person on the receiving end to get an incomplete document.
