Do more with less” is the battle cry of the modern workplace during these tough economic times.
As an IT director/manager, you’re confronted with the constant pressure to contain both capital and operating costs while meeting demanding service levels to attain business objectives. You are continually looking for ways to recover and redirect operational spending by increasing staff productivity and efficiency. So maybe it’s time to take a hard look at how you can increase IT productivity and lower operational costs through infrastructure management software.
Like most professionals in your field, infrastructure management software isn’t new. For example, the HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM) has been a widely used management tool for HP ProLiant, Integrity and BladeSystem customers for years. It has capabilities such as hardware fault monitoring and alerting; hardware configuration, data collection, and reporting; and BIOS, firmware, and driver updates. And while it continues to benefit customers, there is a need to further optimize and integrate your IT environment.
Consider unlocking even more lifecycle management capabilities…with HP Insight Control.
HP Insight Control provides integrated management functions which enable automated server software deployment and migration, proactive health monitoring and performance management, complete remote management (with HP iLO Advanced), and energy optimization using power management and virtualization management.
So what does this mean to your business? In a recent study, IDC found that users were able to realize a significant return on investment of up to 642% when implementing HP Insight Control. On average, the largest contributor to economic benefits was found to be increased IT staff productivity, representing 68% of the overall average three-year benefits.
