Driving Business Transformation With Data Center Economics

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. Attend this webinar and learn more about this model, a combination of the right technology and the right strategic considerations for your IT investments.

Join us for a live webcast on July 20th, 2016, with Hitachi’s Chief Economist to gain insight into:
•IT cost and efficiency models, from in-house to Converged Infrastructures.
•A true picture of your current storage and related IT costs, along with accurate future projections.
•A clear path to manage storage and IT costs more effectively, while still meeting increasing demands.

  • Flash First Infrastructure – Key To Digital Transformation Recorded: Dec 13 2016 19 mins
    Subu Ramakrishnan, Business Director, Infrastructure Platforms & Software – APAC Hitachi Data Systems
    Businesses have to transform to keep ahead of competition and digital disruptors. It’s important for organizations to leverage data and technology for automating operations and processes, increase customer loyalty, attract new markets and grow revenue streams. Real time personalized customer services are dependent on constant analysis of vast amounts of data. This requires a robust, highly available IT infrastructure powered by purpose built Flash that provides speed, efficiency and agility to better serve customers while handling exponential data growth.

    While flash data reduction capabilities viz. compression and deduplication bring huge savings in terms of capacity, power and cooling it is important to understand that not all Flash technologies are same.
