Acquiring and managing IT hardware, software and services to keep pace with rapidly changing requirements and mission critical demands is increasingly challenging. Today’s CIOs and technology acquisition teams are faced with significant challenges. These teams need to:
- Make purchasing decisions with incredibly low ROI calculations – customers want returns on investments within 2-3 months of our purchases.
- Have the flexibility to purchase technology on demand and turn it on as needed and not have large capital outlay.
- Form the foundation for emerging technologies and improve security while maintaining legacy systems in multi-cloud environments
- Keep up with technology advancements, add disruptive technology and implement solutions quickly while managing rogue IT applications, shadow apps and solutions, and ‘there’s an app for that’ type mentalities. The bottom line is, IT decision makers can’t afford long depreciation cycles, or extended periods of financial impacts to their balance sheets.
