Are you reinvesting IT savings? We want to hear your story.

 


We want to hear how  you are reinvesting your IT saving? 


When the recession hit you answered the call. Whether it was through consolidation, virtualization, automation, or other means you found ways to save money in IT.


Now comes an equally important part: how are you reinvesting those savings? Because while cutting costs keeps you competitive, figuring out how to turn those savings into business value is the ultimate goal. New products and services, innovation, training, reallocation of IT funds to sales and marketing can all build business value and competitive advantage. If you’ve saved money through one of these initiatives, what areas are you targeting for reinvestment?

Software Universe - Initiatives that Deliver Rapid ROI

I just learned that I will be presenting two sessions at Software Universe, which runs from June 16-18 in Las Vegas. The overall theme of the conference is “focusing on initiatives that can deliver immediate improvements and rapid ROI.” Both of my talks fit squarely within that charter.


Here are the two topics on which I will be speaking.


Automating operations management with HP Operations Orchestration
My colleague, Ralph Capasso, an expert in runbook automation, will be co-presenting the talk and running a live demo.


Abstract:
As your infrastructure becomes more complex, you’ll experience more IT events—many of them symptoms of the same root cause. And you probably have limited staff resources to manage and route incidents. The solution? Consolidation and automation. We’ll tell you how to automate event management and remediation with HP Operations Orchestration. Using case studies and workflow examples, we’ll show you how a typical enterprise can drive out millions of dollars in costs, and we’ll present a live demonstration of how HP Operations Manager and Operations Orchestration work together to resolve common issues.


Leveraging agent-based and agentless monitoring to drive down TCO
I’m presenting this session with Alex Ryals of Pepperweed. He has extensive field experience implementing complex IT solutions.


Abstract:
In today’s economy, a mixture of agent-based and agent-less monitoring techniques can be the key to effective infrastructure monitoring within tight budget constraints. Attend this session and learn how two customers combined HP Operations Manager agent-based techniques and HP SiteScope agent-less technologies to reduce their TOC while optimizing their infrastructure monitoring. Presenters will take a deep dive into the integration of these two HP solutions and will explain how you can create both IT value and business value. You’ll also hear how Operations Manager and SiteScope integrate into the overall HP BTO portfolio.


 


If you have any topics you would like us to cover in our talks, or questions on these topics you want answered, please leave a comment on the blog or contact me directly.


In a future post, I’ll have speakers from other sessions preview their topics.


For HP Operations Center, Peter Spielvogel.
