Optimization of Contract Agreements and Infrastructure in outsourced server environments
A joint webinar by Zangenberg Analytics and SMT Data
Cost = Price x Quantity
The cost of outsourcing server infrastructure (e.g. Windows, Linux, UNIX, AS / 400) is a function of quantity and unit prices. In this webinar, we look at the possibilities of optimizing both parts of the calculation, as there is a lot of money at stake for most organizations.
It is important to follow market prices as certain unit prices decline by over 20% per year. At the same time, you must be aware that the risk of not optimizing your portfolio is that you easily end up paying for far more units than you actually utilize.
Zangenberg Analytics is a leading IT consultancy specialized in tracking IT outsourcing prices. SMT Data is a leader in measurements and optimization of operating platforms, also called “rightsizing”. In this webinar we will be showing you how to combine the two approaches.
