Think of your IT infrastructure as a house…a bit of a strange analogy, but hear me out. Twenty years ago, that house was a one bedroom/one bath on a quiet street that rarely saw traffic from visitors. Over the years, the neighborhood has changed—and so have the demands on your little house. Today, it’s grown into a much bigger, more complicated structure with more rooms, more outlets, and more windows and doors. Now your utility bills are higher than ever before, and you spend a huge chunk of your monthly budget just to keep the lights on. Sound familiar?
Unfortunately, too many organizations today are trapped in the cycle of spending 70% of their budgets maintaining old equipment. With so much of your budget tied up, you have to pass on opportunities to spur innovation and implement new ideas
. You’re forced to do more with less, even when you see great possibilities in things like data analytics, new flash storage technologies
, and converged infrastructure. What you need is someone who understands the current layout of your house, the most efficient way to utilize the space, and how to transform it into your dream home.
