Operational Benefits and IT Organizational Transformation: End-User Deployments of Converged and Hyperconverged Systems
By: Laura DuBois
This IDC Buyer Case Study focuses on the transformation occurring in successful, forward-looking IT organizations today. IT leaders recognize that change is under way and are embracing a road map to evolve and modernize their IT organizations and rightsize their investments to prepare for the next decade. IDC spoke with senior IT leaders from three organizations within large global Fortune 1000 companies about their deployment of converged systems for private cloud and the benefits they realized.
The first organization, a subsidiary of an international consumer and business goods and services company, sought to leverage new forms of communications to expand its offerings. The second organization, a healthcare provider, wanted to transform patient care and move to a risk-based model focused on patient outcomes. The last organization, a global financial services firm, driven by a goal of reducing both opex and capex, began an initiative to consolidate datacenters, standardize the infrastructure stack, and move to IT-as-a-service delivery models. The experiences of these companies, shared in this Buyer Case Study, can serve as best practices to firms facing similar business and technology pressures.
