| June 7, 2019

Businesses today face a dilemma. On the one hand, data is critical to the bottom line and data protection is more important than ever. On the other, businesses cannot afford to invest much time in protection processes, instead asking IT organizations to focus on innovation. The technologies used for data protection must not only be resilient and ensure business continuity, they must also be simple to deploy and use, requiring very little time each week. Hours spent on backup and recovery activities take time and energy away from revenue generation. HPE and Micro Focus have partnered to deliver an enterprise grade, hyperconverged backup and disaster recovery solution that addresses the need for both data protection and innovation. The new solution applies to a broad range of business needs, from remote edge sites to large, complex, heterogeneous IT environments.

Rethinking How We Measure IT Infrastructure Value

Article | February 28, 2020

Planning needs a rethink. Else, IT leaders risk hobbling their companies’ growth potential or becoming blindsided by risks. For many, justifying an IT decision to the CFO or the Board begins with a business case. Often, they use the total cost of ownership (TCO) to convince. Using return on investment (ROI) goes a step further than IT costs and savings, and looks at user efficiency and business effectiveness. Both measures fall short on correctly highlighting the true impact to the business of an enabling technology or infrastructure. Either the metric is too narrow, the timeline is too short, or the investment is not mature enough. It warrants a more holistic approach that looks at multiple aspects of risks, costs and benefits, and compares different components of ROI.
