How to Increase Business Agility with Virtualization



Each day, IT organizations face a multitude of challenges that run the gamut-from service delivery, to security, to data management and storage. One of IT’s main priorities is to not only handle these daily challenges, but to also offer ways for the organization to maintain cost-effective services and cutting edge technologies. With these responsibilities; dealing with the daily challenges and still finding new ways to stay agile in today’s economy, many times IT departments spend too much time on the daily upkeep and not enough time dealing with bigger picture items.

Virtualization in an IT organization can help the IT department stay on top of these busy daily challenges. Virtualization offers many different business benefits. These benefits run from showing a quick ROI (return on investment), a lowered TCO (total cost of ownership) to an energy and time saving resource. When a business chooses to virtualize their environment, they are able to consolidate much of their heavy and awkward hardware, clear up some much needed real estate, and leave less of an environmental footprint. Overall, virtualization helps the IT department by adding a layer of flexibility, which helps a company to better utilize their existing hardware investments, improve operational efficiency, and help mitigate risk.
