Microsoft’s Promises to IT: Enabling IT Pros and Development Teams Across the IT Lifecycle
Linking IT to Performance Companies in the top 25% of IT capability grew revenue 6.8% faster per year than their peers in the bottom 25% of IT capability. The firms in the top 25% of IT capability enjoy 23% higher revenue per employee than their peers in the bottom 25% of IT capability. Isolating the impact of all IT functions on productivity shows that IT Infrastructure is a key determinant of superior productivity. Managers in firms that are supported by better information systems have significantly better insight into, and control over, key dimensions of their business. Sources: Enterprise IT Capabilities and Business Performance, Marco Iansiti, David Sarnoff Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School George Favaloro, Principal, Keystone Strategy, Inc-March 2006 Information technology fuels profitable revenue growth Firms with better IT have more productive employees Robust IT infrastructure is a key driver of productivity and growth Information technology gives managers more insight and control

It eliminates local files from being stored on the remote computer, helps prevent suspect PCs from connecting to our network, and exposes a small surface area to the Internet.” —Robert Musial, Director of Information Systems, Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham LLP
Reduce Costs and Complexity Professional services organization with 4 remote branch locations realizes increased employee productivity with the ability to access and share centrally stored files and documents plus increased up-time with central IT management Situation Branch office staff needs to access centrally published documents for proposal development, project planning, and knowledge transfer, and collaborate with each other, including those in different branches. With no on-site IT administrator, they also need to make sure their systems can be centrally monitored and updated for increased security and availability. Solution Deploy Windows Server 2003 R2 in each branch office enabling staff to access files and collaborate. Install System Center Essentials 2007 at the main office to centrally monitor and updated branch clients, servers and applications. Benefits Enhanced employee productivity with better connectivity and reliability Decreased TCO – Up to 50% WAN traffic reduction Increased Security Simplified Management from central office
Enhance Productivity Situation Over the years, the company’s messaging system has become an indispensable part of its business. APA is looking at new ways to use technology to support communication and collaboration. Solution APA migrated its employees to Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007 and is using it as a foundation for providing its users with advanced unified messaging and mobility solutions. Benefit Seeking new ways of using technology to improve its processes and keep its employees connected, APA deployed Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007. The simplified administrator interface enables the network administrator to perform large management tasks in seconds. Local Continuous Replication helps to protect the system against disk failure or data corruption. APA is currently deploying unified messaging and mobility features to give APA employees access to their e-mail, calendar, and contacts even when an Internet connection isn’t available. “When I told our executives that they could listen to their e-mail along with their voice-mail messages within Exchange Server 2007, they were thrilled.” Steve Gould, Network Administrator, APA Trade association improves administrator and end-user productivity with anywhere access to next-generation messaging system

IT Capability Predicts Profitable Growth The Enterprise IT Capability Study demonstrates that: Better information technology (IT) makes a quantifiable, positive difference in business performance. More productive employees. The firms in the top 25 percent of IT capability enjoy 23 percent higher revenue per employee than their peers in the bottom 25 percent of IT capability. Isolating the impact of all IT functions on productivity shows that IT infrastructure is the key determinant of achieving superior productivity. Information technology makes managers more effective. Keystone Strategy, Inc., conducted under the direction of Professor Marco Iansiti of the Harvard Business School 2005 Information Technology Fuels Revenue Growth. Companies in the top 25 percent of IT capability grew revenue 6.8 percent faster per year than their peers in the bottom 25 percent of IT capability.
