Let our Business Technologists help you succeed the first time you deploy a Data Centre transformation program in your organization
Many factors come into the decision matrix for Data Centre transformation programmes. Not only the typical location, power, tax, outsourcing, and employment base decisions, but new factors including cloud, the impact of Moore’s law on compute infrastructure, and green environmental initiatives. Furthermore economic impacts for the cost of capital, across the globe, have shifted the buy versus rent decisions for many corporations. This includes additional options to leverage container, pre-fabricated, or co-locate data center space.
Atos takes the risk out of starting your Journey to Data Centre transformation. Atos brings experience in Data Centre consolidation through discovery of assets and application linkages, rapid ROI assessments, application rationalisation plans, cloud migration factories, detailed business cases, high level designs, and detailed migration planning. Then we bring the experts in to execute an on time and successful Data Center transformation program.
While many companies will attempt these programs on their own or with a technology partner, they may not initially be successful. Technology is only part of the equation and many IT organisations are not structured for successful negotiations and governance with the lines of business to consolidate into a common shared pool of IT resources. Business and IT Governance strategies are critical to changing the way IT serves the business – IT must become like a broker of services that are sourced both internally as well as externally. Atos brings this experience along with the technology, people, process, and organizational change management to help execute a successful Data Centre consolidation strategy.
