Standardization is really the key, but it must be developed within the framework of a highly strategic plan.
ADDISON, Ill. (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
ITsavvy just announced new tips on how to overcome growth-related IT challenges. The ultimate goal is to create an environment of efficiency through a flexible and scalable standardized hardware solution.
Mike Theriault, ITsavvy’s president and CEO explained, “Standardization is really the key, but it must be developed within the framework of a highly strategic plan. Most IT solution providers don’t have the experience, expertise, or capability to develop a smart, cost-effective standardization strategy, but we do.” Some of the many benefits of standardization include:
- Reduced overall complexity (which leads to significant cost savings)
- Streamlined hardware and software upgrades
- Better, more reliable performance
- More efficient operations
- Improved overall business agility
One of ITsavvy’s clients, a $2 billion global manufacturer with an IT staff of less than 10, serves as a good example of how this all plays out. The client set the ambitious goal in 2011 of becoming a world leader in its industry through an aggressive strategy of growth by acquisition. As the client worked toward the goal, there were challenges for the client’s IT operations, especially bringing acquisitions onboard efficiently and cost-effectively.
When alternatives were being considered, ITsavvy’s Senior Client Executive Jim Mundall recommended HP. “When you are running a multi-billion dollar company, quality and performance are the most important considerations,” he explained. “I knew we could rely on HP to deliver both. With its price point, scalability, reliability and reputation, HP was the obvious choice.”
ITsavvy and HP partnered with the client’s technology experts to devise an architecture template that could be replicated and integrated across all facilities—including new acquisitions.
This common framework model can be rolled out with new technologies without a major investment in networking add-ons. This resiliency offers multiple options that continuously maintain operations, reducing the risk for complete outages without a prohibitive cost. HP enables high-feature functionality at an attractive price point. ITsavvy’s Success Story is available for download: follow this link: http://ittybitty.bz/ITsavvySuccessMarch2013.
