Infographic: The Exorbitant Cost of Doing Nothing
Efficient IT may not be at the top of your IT management priority list—but it should be. People often mistake steady state for steady expense outlay. But “business as usual” can be massively expensive. Operating costs are rising, even if your data center infrastructure stays constant, as underutilization of existing assets create more exorbitant expenses. Without a clear focus on efficiency, and if you don’t take advantage of available savings, capital expenses will skyrocket as the organization is forced to react to the growing needs of the business.
With so many other pressing concerns, why should you start an efficiency initiative now? Proactively addressing IT efficiency generates real and significant savings, often immediately and with negligible costs. Relatively modest management efforts and resource reallocation can generate substantial savings.
What’s needed is a holistic view of the business critical IT infrastructure landscape—and the leadership to keep efficiency efforts on course.
To achieve meaningful and lasting IT efficiency, both the facilities and the operations organizations need to contribute equally. Cooperation yields a leaner—and greener—data center that maximizes the strategic value of your capital investment. Save millions in both OpEx and CapEx, and transform your IT infrastructure from a cost center into a competitive advantage.
Compare these two data centers—one who kept a steady course of business as usual and one who embraced a holistic Efficient IT approach. See how much money you could be leaving on the table, and instead of asking “Why Efficient IT right now?” you’ll be saying “Let’s get started!”
