A major challenge facing many organisations in today’s unsettled economy is how to reduce the cost and complexity of their IT while continuing to maintain their competitive edge.

Reducing IT costs and complexity

It may seem hard to believe, but as little as one third of most IT budgets is used to create innovative solutions for the business.

It's a view echoed by analysts IDC Research, who found that only 4% of businesses have best-of-breed IT infrastructure.

Yet what both business and IT managers want to see is IT solving line-of-business challenges and driving efficiency and growth. "Many companies face pressures of cost, regulatory compliance, security and connectivity issues," says Sanderson. "What they really need is an integrated environment to make them more agile and responsive in today's highly competitive climate. By optimising their IT, most could save up to 500 per PC each year in maintenance and management costs. For an organisation with 200 PCs, that would cut costs by 100,000 a year."
