Bloomfield Hills, MI (PRWEB) April 15, 2009
Logicalis, an international leader in high-performance technology solutions, is offering a series of seminars that will help businesses create a more efficient and productive IT environment. The seminars provide a glimpse of a modern IT solution and how effective it can be in terms of reducing cost. Logicalis has partnered with HP for the events as an HP Platinum Business Partner.
The concept for these events grew out of the understanding that IT affects every aspect of a business. "The process of modernizing IT is essentially an attempt to streamline all aspects of IT - from initial specifications through design and configuration of hardware and software, custom integration, and full solution management - by integrating new and more efficient technologies and approaches," said Eric Linxweiler, Solution Services VP, Logicalis. "With the 'From Crisis to Cash' seminars, we hope to educate business owners and IT managers about best practices and options that are available by presenting them with real-world case studies. Applying these principles to a business's IT environment will create cash saving opportunities across all areas of operation."
Logicalis has implemented its consolidation and virtualization strategies for a wide range of companies of varying sizes and technology budgets. A study Logicalis completed for a large enterprise in the financial industry, for example, showed that consolidation could reduce the total cost of ownership of its IT environment from $12.8 million over five years to $5.2 million. On a smaller scale, another Logicalis customer found that it was able to reduce the three-year cost of its infrastructure from $740,000 to $595,000.
While the process for moving 'From Crisis to Cash' involves the modernization of IT by implementing more efficient hardware and streamlining assets and resources, the most important step is having a plan. These seminars show business leaders and IT professionals how these practices can save money, yet these changes cannot be implemented lightly. Logicalis has the experience and capability to provide the vision and planning that is needed for these solutions to work effectively and deliver clear ROI. This includes experience with all areas of modern IT trends, from virtualization and unified communications to data center consolidation and storage consolidation.
The 'From Crisis to Cash' seminar series has been a success thus far and Logicalis welcomes business leaders and IT professionals to attend the upcoming events. The next scheduled events are in Atlanta, GA on April 21, 2009, in Jersey City, NJ on April 22, 2009, in Boston, MA on April 23, 2009 and in Troy, MI on May 20. Space is limited.
