Aca Accelerate Reducing Software Costs By Up to $500/Desktop

  1. 1. ACA Accelerate: Avanade framework for reducing desktop cost and complexity<br />
  2. 2. The corporate desktop is<br />Expensive<br />TCO often exceeds $5,000 per seat per year<br />Complex<br />Multiple hardware models<br />Multiple operating systems<br />Thousands of applications<br />Difficult to manage (due to high complexity)<br />Difficult to deploy<br />Difficult to operate<br />Difficult to upgrade<br />
  3. 3. Applications are the primary cause<br />Volume and Sprawl<br />1 to 2 application for every 10 users<br />Portfolios are growing<br />Applications are unmanaged and user-installed <br />Often unlicensed and incompliant<br />No defined business-owners or accountability<br />Complex technical dependencies between applications<br />Rarely documented<br />Ad hoc installation. Not based on business rules<br />Inconsistent versioning and software configuration<br />
  4. 4. Enterprise app. portfolio according to…<br />3<br />20,000<br />2,000<br />“ Truth”<br />200<br />20<br />2<br />Power<br />User<br />Standard<br />User<br />IT<br />SMS<br />CIO<br />
  5. 5. Technology alone is not the answer<br />Many new technologies exist which can help reduce TCO<br />Before an organization can successfully implement:<br />A new desktop operating system <br />e.g. Windows Vista or Windows 7<br />Centralized enterprise software deployment software for packaged application delivery <br />e.g. System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (SCCM)<br />Application virtualization <br />e.g. Microsoft app-V (formerly SoftGrid)<br />Presentation virtualization <br />e.g. Windows 2008 Remote Application Publishing or Citrix<br />They must address the application barriers<br />
  6. 6. Success requires a definitive software library<br />What does the application portfolio look like?<br />How many applications are in use today?<br />Which are unused, underused, or duplicate?<br />Who is the business owner for each?<br />What is the criticality and service level for each?<br />Which applications should be installed tomorrow?<br />Business criteria<br />e.g. Licensing cost, product functionality, SLAs<br />Technical criteria<br />e.g. Operating system compatibility, deployment model, preferred platforms<br />Organizations shouldn’t deploy new technology without these answers<br />
  7. 7. Avanade Asset: ACA Accelerate<br />Automated discovery<br />Collects organization, user, hardware, and software detail <br />Gathers data across departments, cost centers, and geographies<br />Consolidates inventory from multiple systems and data sources<br />Filters out the ‘noise’ <br />Business-oriented application rationalization framework<br />Aligns IT objectives with business objectives<br />Enables analysis across 200+ business and technical factors<br />Aligns current state and future state based on known data and clear business rules<br />Value delivered<br />Clarity. A well-documented, definitive software library<br />Actionable roadmap to reduced TCO – typically 25-50% direct savings<br />High quality technology transformations based on well-understood factors<br />
