Migrate and consolidate your infrastructure platforms

To better compete and grow, businesses demand more innovation, speed, and flexibility from their data centers. This puts the pressure squarely on IT to deliver applications and new services quickly, while also paving the way for future innovation.

Unfortunately, aging infrastructure and facilities are limiting business agility and draining IT budgets. Inflexible, monolithic, hard-wired, and under-utilized systems are complex, costly to maintain, and too slow to respond to today’s business demands—a phenomena known as IT sprawl. The way out is through infrastructure convergence, which can help overcome IT sprawl while establishing a solid foundation for both traditional and cloud solutions.

Our experts will help you discover the benefits of modernizing your overgrown operations and will look at ways for infrastructure convergence in your environment to provide improved return on investment.

How to reduce your costs

Cost is the biggest driver in the consolidation process. Companies are looking to standardize and centralize their operations. After a merger and acquisition, companies must integrate systems and consolidate to avoid redundancies. Reducing the cost of real estate and IT are the major drivers for performing data center consolidation. Companies that consolidate their data centers report savings over several fronts. These include:

  • 30 percent savings in operational costs
  • 40 percent reduction in energy usage
  • 25 percent lower real estate expenses
