  10. 10. Why Do Phase 1 <ul><li>To Lower Cost </li></ul>15% 30% IT PRODUCTION Percent Virtualised Lower costs IT Applications are the priority Virtualise Test and Development and IT-owned assets to create shared resource pools Create an infrastructure that is: Simple – streamline the entire infrastructure to enhance the speed of virtualisation. Efficient – extend the CAPEX savings to all parts of the infrastructure. Integrated with VMware – leverage and extend the benefits throughout the infrastructure. Result: Lower IT Costs
  11. 11. Why Do Phase 2 <ul><li>To Improve Quality of Service </li></ul>50% 85% BUSINESS PRODUCTION Improve quality of service Business Applications are the priority Expand virtualisation to business app, databases, and desktops to standardized the way services are delivered Create an infrastructure that is: Scalable – capacity, performance, and infrastructure Available – continuous operations at the right location Protected – from loss of information , retrieval delays, and excessive cost Secure – information, infrastructure and access Result: Improved Quality of Service Lower IT Costs
  12. 12. Why Do Phase 3 <ul><li>Improve IT Agility </li></ul>IT-AS-A-SERVICE 95% Improve agility Gold Platinum Serving the business is the priority Enable policy-driven provisioning, management, and delivery of services Create an infrastructure that is : Unrestricted – by physical architecture and design Automated – an automated way to implement policy Aligned – to costs for IT services delivered User controlled – for the services they need Result: Improved Agility Improved Quality of Service Lower IT Costs
