EUC with HCI: Why It Matters

Spread Thinner

To be effective, IT optimization needs to go through several steps.

A: First, IT's strategic goals must be aligned with those of the organization.

B: Next, determine the organization's most critical business processes, so you'll make sure your optimization efforts are focused where they'll have the most effect.

C: Then determine the most efficient use of the applications, servers and storage strategies needed to support those business processes. The goal: to break free of the need for a one-to-one correspondence between processes and their supporting applications, servers and storage, instead sharing applications across fewer servers, and servers across fewer storage units. The result: Better use of fewer resources.
