BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI, August 18, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — Leading high-performance technology solutions provider, Logicalis, describes ways to go "From Crisis to Cash." The aim is to help clients realize efficient, profitable business outcomes.
"Our ‘From Crisis to Cash’ theme really resonates today and a simple acronym explains IT areas we focus customers on for the strongest economic impact," Greg Baker, CFO, Logicalis said. "In my world, cash is king and today CFOs are stretching every dollar. That makes IT spending an obvious discussion area and the very smartest decisions involve genuine teamwork. I want teams focused on the right areas to not just save cost, but more importantly, so we’re confident IT will positively transform our future."
Logicalis offers to help customers go "From Crisis to Cash" with these focus areas:
Create – Better business decision-making data to drive sales and market share
Advance – The pace of IT cost reduction and efficiency
Simplify – Legacy applications and infrastructure to reduce risk
Harness – Control over your technology assets to reduce burdens on IT staff
Logicalis has implemented its virtualization strategies for a wide range of companies of varying sizes and technology budgets. A study Logicalis completed for a large enterprise in the financial industry, for example, showed that consolidation could reduce the total cost of ownership of its IT environment from $12.8 million over five years to $5.2 million. On a smaller scale, another Logicalis customer found that it was able to reduce the three-year cost of its infrastructure from $740,000 to $595,000.
Dave Kurtz, who has conducted financial analyses for hundreds of Logicalis customers during virtualization assessments said, "Relatively speaking, planning for growth in an IT environment is easy; planning for contraction is much tougher. Virtualization makes it easier to adapt your IT infrastructure to your current requirements."
Moving "From Crisis to Cash" involves the modernization of IT by implementing more efficient hardware and streamlining assets and resources. With the steps (create, advance, simplify and harness), Logicalis hopes to show business leaders and IT professionals how these practices can save money and, ultimately, increase ROI for the business.
