Solution Provider Outlines Third Step in the IT Transformation Journey, Offers IT Pros Downloadable eBook, Feature Article on Converged Infrastructure
NEW YORK, October 22, 2013 – Servers, storage, networks, applications and management – all the technologies the enterprise uses today – have evolved to the point where they can be converged into a single entity. In effect, the capabilities that a converged infrastructure makes possible can turn a corporate IT department into a service provider rather than a cost center, though each organization is in a different stage of its IT transformation journey. According to Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (http://www.us.logicalis.com/), the first step in figuring out how to get where a company wants to go is figuring out where it is today. To help, Logicalis US has created a blueprint for IT transformation, a step-by-step guide to assist IT pros in determining where they are as well as where they’re headed.

“Logicalis recently worked with a customer who was challenged with managing servers, storage, and networking separately from their IT management as well as procurement and refresh cycles. They approached Logicalis about how they could consolidate the way they purchase, manage and view their core infrastructure,” says Brandon Harris, Vice President, HP Solutions, Logicalis US. “Logicalis was able to leverage HP Converged Infrastructure to put together a complete solution with a single management software framework for their core infrastructure. This provided the customer the ability to look at the environment more holistically, the ability to save time and money in the management of the environment, and the ability to deploy the infrastructure more quickly.”
