Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past. As firms spend 76% of their IT budget on maintenance and support, they will naturally invest in BSM solutions that will reduce costs, enable ITIL, and provide an optimal ROI.

Many premises-based phone system (PBX) manufacturers claim that the five year costs of their systems are lower than an equivalent cloud alternative. What the premises guys don’t tell you about is all the extra little hidden costs that come as a result of the limitations of the hardware and software in their systems. This guide will provide you with useful questions to ask your PBX manufacturer to ensure that you're getting the full picture on the cost of their system. Questions to Ask During an Evaluation: • Have you sized this system for my peak demand? • Have you factored in the cost of site redundancy? • How many hours of call recording are included? • How is mobility supported? Do calls route in an out of the PBX for call treatment? • What are the annual maintenance costs of the hardware and software in this system? • Which third party systems have you integrated this PBX with?

Headquartered in Chicago, Bean Suntory owns over 70 premium spirit brands from whiskey and rum, to vodka, cognac, tequila, and gin. Beam Suntory generates $4 billion in annual revenues. But that revenue was in danger. The company’s production software, Wonderware, which controls embedded systems driving almost every critical production process, was underpinned by ageing hardware. If it failed, production would come to a grinding—and expensive—halt.Every hour of downtime results in lost production, which can amount to millions of dollars in losses,” says Sanjay Kirtikar, Director Digital Technologies, Beam Suntory. To ensure Wonderware never failed, Beam Suntory implemented hyperconverged clusters integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software The results were instant and outstanding. Beam Suntory expects a 25-35% cost benefit from lower support and maintenance efforts, and a 50% reduction in power usage.

Prime your business for growth with a software-defined approach. The current business-enterprise climate demands robust connectivity and delivery in services. As IT executives continue to invest in integrated infrastructure, companies that remain committed to hardware-centric infrastructure are being left behind and subsequently are exposing their enterprises to risk and loss. Liabilities include time wastage and financial costs in the management and maintenance of legacy infrastructure, creating a deficit in executives’ energy when it comes to innovation and future planning. VMware’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is a malleable, sophisticated solution which facilitates the vital transition from physical to virtualized storage solutions. HCI is the foundation for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) destined for leading enterprise operations.

We’re experiencing a data explosion. By 2020 the data we create and copy annually will reach 44 trillion gigabytes.1 As this data disseminates into the workplace, companies add hardware and software systems to store, protect and manage it all. While data can help solve business problems, data is most helpful when it reaches those who can use it. Companies need to build Microsoft SharePoint apps that integrate with other line-of-business (LOB) systems so users can take full advantage of this data explosion. But the reality of creating apps that integrate data across organizational systems presents an intimidating challenge. To integrate multiple isolated data sources into an application that transforms data into useful information requires technical expertise, coding and ongoing maintenance. Integration also raises security and governance concerns. So it’s no surprise that only 47 percent of SharePoint users have connected their SharePoint apps with other systems.2 As a result, nearly

Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.

Cisco and Polycom are expensive, on-premises solutions that take weeks to deploy. They require large, ongoing investments to manage them and do not offer a cloud service. How much time and how many resources do you have to spend training and supporting users to work with your Cisco or Polycom solution? Don’t be fooled by packaging. Their solutions are still complex, on-premises hardware that require a team of IT specialists to support and lack the flexibility for you to grow at your own pace. For a price similar to that of your infrastructure software maintenance, you can use Lifesize Cloud and skip the high cost and complexity of Cisco’s or Polycom’s on-premises infrastructure.

Client virtualization technologies are redefining the way IT resources are delivered to end users, and creating exciting new opportunities for IT organizations as they work to streamline and improve operations. By abstracting applications and operating systems from client hardware, virtualization enables client assets to be stored on central servers and delivered to client endpoints. The implications are profound. End users can log on to any networkconnected computing device and access their custom operating system and application environment. For IT departments, central management of client virtual machine (VM) images brings efficiencies in everything from routine maintenance and updating to operating system upgrades.
