1 Cutting Cost and Lowering Capex Infrastructure uses up valuable IT resources Driving value for the business with tight IT budgets Leveraging and extending past IT investments to provide future value Maintaining security while increasing access and transparency internally and externally Many data centers are a limitation Finding the right transformative capabilities across the enterprise: cloud computing, data- center strategies, SaaS, mobility, IT automation?
Business End Users Need Agility and Flexibility IT Pros Need Control Changing Market Conditions Emerging Competitive Threats Mergers and Acquisitions Diverse User Populations Scarce Staff Tighter Budgets Aging Hardware Matrixed Partners Many Configurations
To an approach that… Is holistic - across the infrastructure Reduces complexity and helps to control costs Meets Business drivers Is based on proven Best Practices Prioritizes and sequences IT projects in a structured, systematic manner Manages Cost Provides focus on Agility Improves role-based Productivity Infrastructure Optimization Provides that Approach

It also wanted to better manage remote servers. “Our older infrastructure could not accommodate newer services, nor could it deliver the kind of rock-solid reliability that we need for the GRAMMYs.” – Rick Engdahl Vice President of Information Technology, The Recording Academy By using Microsoft licensing efficiencies, The Academy upgraded its entire core infrastructure and added Microsoft System Center data center solutions for better system management.
