The concept of optimising IT sounds logical, but opinions vary on what the term “IT optimisation” really means. What does it really mean and what are the benefits to IT departments and the organisations they serve? Optimisation is a two-fold IT asset management solution that aims to reduce costs associated with delivering IT solutions, alongside leveraging current IT assets to provide organisational value. The blending of these two philosophies generates IT optimisation that truly reduces costs, mitigates business risk, and lays the foundation for new business opportunities.
What is IT Optimisation? Optimisation should begin with an IT infrastructure assessment, which is basically a data centre discovery service – finding and inventorying anything with an IP address: servers, desktops, routers, switches and much more. Cataloguing server utilisation determines which servers can be consolidated, virtualisation, or removed. Software identification provides resolution to any issues with compatibility or licensing. As a result of this IT infrastructure assessment, organisations are able to identify overlapping IT resources within business segments and eliminate redundant or obsolete systems and applications.
After the data center discovery phase, you can begin standardizing IT processes that align with business strategies. Standardization is essential for IT optimization, as it:
Why Does Optimisation Matter?
The standardisation of IT processes allows organisations to implement enterprise-shared services and collaboration across business segments, to more easily achieve organisational goals. Leveraging the power of enterprise systems creates organisational value by eliminating costs associated with managing redundant systems and applications. This systematic approach toward a standardised enterprise infrastructure results in faster deployments, cost-effective license structure, and system integrations, which help to improve real-time transactions and provide real-time data analytics. Truly integrated systems provide timely data analytics that offer organisational leaders insight, helping them to make intelligent business decisions.
