The rush to virtualisation and cloud-based infrastructure solves old problems and presents new ones. Next-generation data centres won’t deliver all desired benefits unless operational complexity, cost and efficiency are well managed. IT service delivery must be treated as a packaged-goods manufacturing process – where “best practice” systems and automation are essential to deliver predictable, timely, cost-effective quality services. Learn how to “flip the ratios” from 30% innovation / 70% maintenance to 70:30 with a reduced budget.
Today's private cloud innovation could become tomorrow's thunderstorm. Far from simplifying operations, private cloud technologies increase complexity unless well-planned and Well managed. The realities of cloud means you are crossing many boundaries – services, applications, operating systems, hypervisors and infrastructure. How will your organisation cope? Realising the promise of private cloud means understanding your deliverables, building-in elasticity and automating key processes. Without these considerations, your cloud investment will not realise its true potential.
Today’s data centre investments set the stage for new infrastructure opportunities in the future. The first wave of virtualisation and consolidation has provided a key learning –building a dynamic data centre requires a more strategic approach. In this session, we’ll look at how Microsoft approaches infrastructure for critical online services such as Azure, Bing, and Hotmail and how these best practices are being applied in some of our leading customers today. We’ll also cover the financial case for the private cloud and how HP and Microsoft are pioneering the next-generation infrastructure-to-application data centre.
Introducing automation in IT organisation may tempt you to aim for the stars, but it starts with the basics: Know what your people are doing – identify relevant activity areas to automate. HP’s leading Management software portfolio combined with HP’s best-practice implementation, education and ‘as-a-service’ service offerings, can help your organisation contain risks and reduce operating cost to maintain capital advantage of V12N through automation.
One of the many areas calling out for automation is the “health check” – a sequence of tasks and activities used to verify that something is working as expected. Read about the ease with which HP Operations Orchestration can be used to build, deploy and run automated health checks into a complex heterogeneous environment. This will enable you to save development and deployment time, allow health check to be run anytime, anywhere, by anyone, and liberate real cash flow for other IT innovation.

CxO’s are under pressure to be innovative to deliver new business outcomes: cut costs, enable growth, and manage carbon footprints. The barrier to innovation is the enterprise’s IT portfolio, which is so complex that on average 70% of the IT budget is spent keeping the lights on leaving only 30% for innovation. Forward thinking CxO’s are taking a services view of IT: on the supply side by procuring IT resources as a service – from hardware through to enterprise class applications; and on the demand side by offering business services to the enterprise – bundles of data, applications, and infrastructure that deliver business value.
As an example of “Innovation as a Service”, we investigate the growing imperative for comprehensive Carbon accounting and governance programs. Organisations must move swiftly to implement to meet client, shareholder and regulatory expectations. The key to enterprise carbon transformation is the combination of “Green IT” and “IT for Greening your Business”. By aligning HP technology with environment and business strategies, HP’s service develops a roadmap to improve an organisation’s total carbon footprint. Every process, action and product can be tracked and measured: what gets measured gets managed.
While much is talked of the infrastructure approach to the cloud, what does this really mean for the real value driver of IT – business applications? How should collaboration technologies form part of everything your organisation does? How can you put powerful business intelligence tools in the hands of the many, not the few? In this session we’ll look at how the right approach to modernising business applications can transform your IT organisation into an internal Software-as-a-Service provider.
Innovation-as-a-Service offers new opportunities through a modernised IT portfolio powering the business. A roadmap is imperative for defining the best and lowest risk approach to achieving modernised, green applications. A roadmap can only be crafted through a full understanding of the business and a future state architecture. Understanding the needs of the enterprise means foundational work will only need to be done once. Measurement along the way is crucial to proving business value and refining the next iteration of your Roadmap.
