HP Presentation: IT Sprawl has Business at the Breaking Point


Published on

When looking closer at the Data Center, the cost of operations has absorbed a huge portion of the IT budget by up to 70% (includes both support & maintenance) – leaving little budget for more strategic or innovative needs. Enterprises clearly need to reduce the total amount of resources that are focused on operations and maintenance and free up resources to work on more strategic, innovative tasks. This session will also explore how HP's storage solutions bring together hardware, software and services to create next-generation data centers that operate more efficiently. Attendees will also learn:

* Why tomorrow’s business will be built on a converged infrastructure that includes storage, servers, networking, power/cooling, and software - and why traditional SAN’s don't address today’s availability and disaster recovery needs.
* Way's to rapidly respond to business and customer needs in order to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.
* How to ensure business continuity and protect your resource and data assets against a growing range of security threats.
