Our client’s Global IT Infrastructure Hosting Services group struggled with on-premise asset lifecycles, due to a lack of access to, and trust in, the data needed to answer questions such as:
– “What is the optimal server size for any given plant?”
– “How much infra did a specific group consume last year?”
– “Which applications are using this database?”
We shifted data management from being based on systems and old alliances, to being based on end-user services, and engineered self-service utilization and capacity dashboards.
Our solution resulted in $1.5M in property tax savings from “phantom” assets. Additionally, the self-service allocation model freed time for proactive work, and mitigated patching and “digital depreciation” risks.
