The role of today’s IT leadership is transforming. In addition to mounting demands, technical challenges and operational considerations, there are economic realities to consider. Budgets are under real pressure and as a result, companies are always looking for ways to increase the efficiency of their IT organizations to hold or reduce costs. To alleviate some of this pain, new generations of technologies have emerged, such as converged infrastructure, or the Unified Compute Platform (UCP) from Hitachi. This type of infrastructure replaces in-house solutions and provides increased automation and control. But, is technology alone an effective long-term tool to maintain or reduce costs?IT Economics, from HDS, is a proven methodology that can help identify, measure and materially reduce the costs of IT. When paired with the appropriate technology, purpose-built assessments and services help map costs and plan investments around build strategies.
