Abstract 3 HP Confidential Faster triage, lower time to value, single pane of glass are all regular marketing value statements. However how to render these accessible to the midsize enterprise can be challenging. Bell Micro UK and HP have collaborated to build the Insight Operations Appliance to do just this through a physical server pre-loaded with BTO Operations software and pre-configured to suit a customer IT Environment. Providing an economically highly attractive entry point offer, targeting virtualization in its first go to market version, this session will describe the experience gained in developing the appliance, and provide early customer adoption feedback on its value.

The effect is that buyers are now looking to source as many of the shortaged components as possible to ensure their own production lines keep rolling. Nortic are one of only 3 suppliers capable of filling this urgent gap. With the fire, this is effectively down to just 2 suppliers. This means that if Nortic respond well, they can expect a 50% increase in business….. Initially, the signs are good. Traffic to their web site increases and the orders start to come in.

Nortic need to find out where the problem lies and get it fixed………
