Streamlining IT Operations: Bridging the Gap Between IT Effectiveness and Cost-Efficiencies
According to primary research from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), more than half of all businesses consider “cost reduction” to be a primary focus of their current IT management strategies. While many organizations mistakenly believe that taking steps to reduce IT expenditures will proportionally decrease IT effectiveness, the two do not need to be diametrically opposed forces. By introducing holistic visibility, seamless workflows, and policy-guided automation, businesses can streamline IT operations to substantially reduce costs while simultaneously improving IT service reliability, security, and performance.
Join Steve Brasen, research director at EMA, and Christopher Distasio, senior director of product management at Kaseya, to receive actionable guidance on the most effective approaches to identify and reconcile cost inefficiencies, as well as how to achieve the most value out of existing IT investments.
Additionally, attendees will discover:
- Key elements for identifying the true cost of IT, including both CapEx and OpEx
- The most common barriers organizations face in trying to reduce operational expenditures
- The effect of increased cloud adoption on IT operations and how to streamline cloud service delivery
