A guide for your journey to Converged Infrastructure: Meet Mohammed Safder

In his 14-plus years at HP, Mohammed Safder, Worldwide leader of HP IT Strategy Consulting Services, has helped leading IT organizations with just about every aspect of IT infrastructure strategy. Stakeholder identification, needs analysis, and consensus building? Check. Planning and business case development? Sure. Strategy execution, risk management, change management? Yep. The key to helping a business complete a successful converged infrastructure initiative is not just technical mastery of specific subject areas, he notes, “but also the ability to ask insightful questions and listen attentively. I need to hear what my customers' challenges are and consider both the business requirements and the IT requirements in their entirety.”


At HP Discover in Las Vegas in June, Mohammed introduced the HP Converged Infrastructure Capability Model (CI-CM), a complimentary tool and process that can be a huge help for organizations that are interested in moving toward a next-generation IT infrastructure and service-centric delivery model. The CI-CM enables you to benchmark your delivery in terms of people, process, technology and governance, and provides a high-level roadmap for transforming your infrastructure and operation functions. See the slides below of the session that Mohammed presented with Russ Wagner, Enterprise Architect with HP Enterprise Storage, Servers and Network, titled “Accelerate your move to next generation IT infrastructure and cloud: the converged infrastructure capability model”.
