70% of IT budgets (in the broad sense) go to reactive stuff and maintenance activities. Only 30% are addressing the Challenges of Today. There’s a systems problem, there’s a server down, my mail’s out of space, a virus is running rampant and buried IT resources, I can’t access the billing system. Then, the top executives, board and shareholders are concerned about a smarter business-intelligence and way of viewing all that data you have in the database,They want you to do more with less, (a/k/a cost-reduction and efficiency) AND, they’re concerned about compliance and risk mitigation.
This image lists the basic requirements for each capability to advance through the optimization levels.
Next slide: being able to evaluate the cost savings of the environment, that we’ve gone through and helped them understand the move from one pillar to the next what the potential financial impact would be. Next slide: a results (form) that describes the outcome of the IO assessment. The main point is to connect the products with the capabilities that they are wanting to improve.
