Free eBook: HP Converged Infrastructure For Dummies

Are you ready to accelerate the value of IT in your business? Would you like to simplify your data center and your IT processes so you can focus on innovating for the future rather than being mired in the past? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Everyone in the IT arena understands that the speed and scale of business have been pushing traditional IT to the breaking point. Compounding this pressure are the new challenges CEOs are facing to meet the new wave of customer, partner, and employee expectations due to mobility, social media, and the information explosion. These constituencies are smart, savvy, and connected. They have little patience for businesses that can’t respond to their needs right now.

To compete in this instant age, organizations need an IT infrastructure that enables agile and rapid service delivery. They expect their IT organization to deliver applications and services that are fast, always available,  scalable, and interoperable while driving down costs. With all the complexity in today’s data centers, that’s a tough proposition when you consider the new wave of evolving business models and the changing workforce.  Things simply have to happen much faster.

About Infrastructure Convergence

Before you dive into the book, we want to offer a simplified definition of infrastructure convergence: Infrastructure convergence enables organizations to accelerate time to business value. This is achieved by turning today’s rigid technology silos into adaptive pools of assets that can be shared by many applications and managed as a service. The result is greater IT speed and agility, the ability to shift more resources from operations to innovation, and better alignment with the growing demands of the business.

The Era of Convergence

Leading industry analysts agree that converged technologies will deliver tremendous value and savings — in other words, they feel that the whole is better than the sum of the parts. What’s more, these analysts support the idea that mobile, cloud, and pervasive computing technologies will fundamentally shift the expectations and roles of IT in the enterprise. The role of IT will move from one of managing physical assets to that of being a broker of IT services from inside and outside to satisfy business needs.

Over the past couple of years, technology vendors have started pitching a convergence story; key analysts support the trend and businesses understand they need to embrace the concept. The cost, speed, and efficiency advantages are just all too real. But convergence means you’re being confronted with seemingly endless technology choices and confusing messages. All this makes it difficult to understand how best to get started and with which vendor — and which convergence solution is best aligned to your specific needs. This book will make it easier for you to understand convergence and the ways you can move forward with it quickly and safely.
