IT organizations are still grappling with the legacy of the IT explosion of the 1990s, which left many of them with high costs, slow response times, and an inconsistently managed infrastructure. Today, IT organisations that want to give their enterprise a sustainable competitive advantage need to:
- Reduce infrastructure costs through more efficient use of resources.
- Respond faster to business needs so projects get deployed more rapidly.
- Increase the consistency and predictability of operations.
This paper will clarify how adopting VMware infrastructure – the combination of server, storage and networking virtualization technologies — as a fundamental IT strategy helps organisations to achieve these goals.
