GREATER FLEXIBILITY With a smart convergence solution you can adapt your data center more rapidly to changes in IT demands. And you will be able to cost- efficiently scale for future growth. IMPROVED MANAGEABILITY The management tools you implement as part of your convergence plan will provide greater visibility, automation and utilization of resources — increasing your efficiencies, preventing potential challenges and providing better insight into future costs. APRIL 2015 | GOVERNMENT INDUSTRY TRENDS | DATA CENTER OPTIMIZATION Traditional data center models can’t keep up with today’s growing demand for applications, storage and resources on servers and networks. Data centers have gotten too big, too uncoordinated and too inefficient. And it has cost your organization time, money and productivity.

CATEGORIES Cloud Productivity 4 Telephony 9 Data Center 12 Virtualization 18 Networking 26 Tablets 30 Notebooks 32 Desktops 39 Printers 42 Software 46 20% The traditional data center struggles with: COMPLEXITY — Multiple environments with a nonuniform set of systems hinder performance and scalability. LIMITED RESOURCES — Reduced budgets and limited space place limits on system improvement. UNDER UTILIZATION — Outdated technologies with higher maintenance costs prevent efficient use of data center resources. Alleviate the problem with convergence With the right plan, you can consolidate data center size, improve resource utilization, lower total cost of ownership and lay the foundation for a future cloud transition. BETTER PROTECTION A converged data center provides better tools for backup and recovery of mission- critical data. It also reduces the number of access points that are vulnerable to illicit data mining. CLOUD PREPAREDNESS Data center convergence lays the foundation for organizations to make the transition to cloud computing — making it easier for future upgrades to be implemented. OF I.T.
