With the sudden influx of Mobility, Cloud and Big Data on your enterprise, you are quickly figuring out that this will have a major impact on how IT is managed today. Gartner calls these the “Nexus of Forces”. These new trends are going to change how we think about IT, how we justify projects, and even how we drive business growth. The “elephant in the room” though is “Can your existing IT environment handle it and is your IT organization ready to change as needed to adopt these new trends”?


The HP Modernization Impact Assessment is a quick reality-check that can determine if you are ready to transform your IT environment. It allows you to answer a few questions about various areas of your IT environment and compare it to best practices. It generates a score in each area and then provides you with an overall score. Once you know your score, it will give you suggestions on how to improve and initiatives you should be taking on to prepare your IT organization for these “Nexus of Forces”.


To get started, begin here at HP Modernization Impact Assessment. You will be asked to enter a few pieces of information about yourself so you can receive your results electronically.


Give it a shot. It only takes a few minutes – and the results will provide you with valuable insight.
