Webinar: Performance, Scale and Simplicity for Lower Operational Costs

“Gartner defines total cost of ownership as a comprehensive assessment of information technology or other costs across enterprise boundaries over time. For IT, TCO includes hardware and software acquisition, management and support, communications, end-user expenses and the opportunity cost of downtime, training and other productivity losses.”

First developed in the 1980s, 2020 discussions with CIOs and CFOs, reveal that TCO has remained relevant helping leaders make informed long-term decisions even during the post-pandemic era when focus on optimised outcomes.

The many ways to the desired outcome

Innovations in technology has given CIOs several options to chart the path towards innovation and strategic. Optimization is a business-focused, continuous discipline intended to maximize business value while reducing costs.

For instance, did you know that a large insurance company in China achieved a 21:1 consolidation ratio of their Oracle environment and 90% software savings on running atop a Linux-based IBM server while still delivering performance and reliability?

This 29 September, FutureCIO in partnership with IBM, will host a virtual webcast to share best practices in optimizing IT operations to drive business value for digital enterprises. Among the topics to be covered include:

  • Architecting a hybrid-native, future-ready IT strategy optimised for new normal
  • Finding the balance between performance, sustainability, security, and the hybrid cloud
  • Merging business priorities with technology capabilities to achieve the best of all worlds
