IDC Whitepaper - Time for Change: Optimizing Datacenter Infrastructure with Technology Refresh

IDC recently published a White Paper - "Time for Change: Optimizing Datacenter Infrastructure with Technology Refresh", sponsored by Oracle, which provides valuable insight and quantifies the business benefits of upgrading and modernizing IT infrastructure.

The report is based on in-depth interviews with seven enterprises that have recently worked with Oracle to refresh and optimize their data center infrastructure for an average three-year ROI of 267% and a payback in 13 months.

By consolidating and virtualizing their UNIX server and storage environments, IDC found these organizations were able to realize the following benefits:

  • Gain a more powerful infrastructure that delivers an aggregate financial benefit of $91,466 per 100 end users;
  • Optimize IT staff support by enabling them to more proactively manage IT infrastructure and reduce time spent responding to problems and architecture complexities;
  • Quantify real end user productivity gains derived from higher service levels and faster response times;
  • Mitigate the risks associated with service downtime by up to 99%; enabling more productive business operations.
