IT Value Propositions

IT Value Propositions

That's a unique Sun IT Propositions which brings Value to the Company

It is an important part of business value proposition as it shows our core-business :
- Our assets compared with competitors
- Our services capabilities
- A significant reference including figured customer benefit
- Functional and technical indicators to drive solution performance

The IT model is based on 5 axis :
  Scalability/Power : Horizontal/Vertical Scalability, Power (CPU, I/O...)
  ECO : Economy (Costs), Ecology (KVA, RoHS, WEEE...)
  Security : (Data, Access...)
  Availability : (Clustering, Components redondancy...)
  Flexibility : (Virtualization, Provisioning...)

A large part of Sun's IT value proposition is based on the fact that we master all the key elements of the IT value chain.
It does not mean we cannot address heterogeneous environments, but it creates the conditions to deliver strong IT solutions to our customers.
We know how to address a broader range of needs and when we answer a business problem from one of our customers,
we are in a position to consider all the aspects of it. This is a strong differentiator compared to some of our competitors who are specialized in one area.

We have defined the Sun IT value propositions that can be seen as templates of the “Business/IT Alignement Approch” which are instantiated when we address a particular customer.
A given IT value proposition defines the typical key performance indicators that we use. It also describes the unique assets and services that Sun owns and that makes Sun proposition unique on the market. Finally, a real life customer experience is presented.
