Driving Business Transformation With Data Center Economics

57 mins

David Merrill, Chief Economist, Hitachi Data Systems

The role of today’s IT leadership is transforming. In addition to mounting demands, technical challenges and operational considerations, there are economic realities to consider. Budgets are under real pressure and as a result, companies are always looking for ways to increase the efficiency of their IT organizations to hold or reduce costs. To alleviate some of this pain, new generations of technologies have emerged, such as converged infrastructure, or the Unified Compute Platform (UCP) from Hitachi. This type of infrastructure replaces in-house solutions and provides increased automation and control. But, is technology alone an effective long-term tool to maintain or reduce costs?IT Economics, from HDS, is a proven methodology that can help identify, measure and materially reduce the costs of IT. When paired with the appropriate technology, purpose-built assessments and services help map costs and plan investments around build strategies. Attend this webinar and learn more about this model, a combination of the right technology and the right strategic considerations for your IT investments. Join us for a live webcast on July 20th, 2016, with Hitachi’s Chief Economist to gain insight into:
•IT cost and efficiency models, from in-house to Converged Infrastructures.
•A true picture of your current storage and related IT costs, along with accurate future projections.
•A clear path to manage storage and IT costs more effectively, while still meeting increasing demands.

Vertically Integrated IT - Adapting your role to cloud

39 mins

Chris Van Der Drift, Fracois Zimmerman, Udo Walberer.

Companies that are serious about moving to on-demand, service-led delivery recognise that they need to change from horizontally organised IT to vertically aligned IT. This has a huge impact on the day-to-day role of domain architects and enables them to move from a tactical to a strategic role. For example, instead of executing repetitive low-level provisioning tasks they now define policies and resource pools and manage service classes so that infrastructure can be consumed on-demand from a cloud management portal. In order to support this transition we need new management tools that can accelerate time to market and eliminate the operational handoffs between domain architects for hypervisor, server, network and storage layers.Join this discussion with the Hitachi Private Cloud team who can share how Hitachi can guide you through this transition as you adapt your role and remain relevant in the world of cloud.

IT Economics Transparency

60 mins

Paul Lewis, Chief Technical Officer, Hitachi Data Systems, Canada, David Merrill, Chief Economist, Hitachi Data Systems

CIOs increasingly need to care about the finances and costs of IT. They must create services that business segments demand and align them with IT resources from other sources (like cloud providers). Internal IT has to compare and compete with new commercial offerings that are often sold directly to the business. IT will see major transformations in delivery and ownership over the next few years, and IT managers will need better transparency in internal costs in order to be relevant and competitive. There are many cases where IT departments need to act more like profit centers, treating internal users like customers and potentially even brokering several service models. New methods of metering, service level agreement management, chargeback and service flexibility are required. By attending this webcast, you’ll learn how to:
•Understand what a CIO requires to know the true costs of IT.
•Communicate with lines of business about internal and external IT delivery and service options.
•Not be seduced by low prices (software as a service, platform as a service) and to communicate and measure total costs of IT.
•Identify, measure and set plans to reduce IT costs.
