Modern application delivery leaders realize that their primary goal is to deliver value to the business and its customers, faster. For many, this is a significant shift from the past, when they primarily focused on cost control and efficiency.
Today, they must connect the work they do and the results they produce to business outcomes. To do this, application development and delivery (AD&D) leaders use a new set of metrics that help them monitor and improve the value they deliver, based on feedback from business partners and customers. In this report, we highlight these new metrics that connect business outcomes to app delivery performance — as well as the practices and tools that modern application delivery teams and their AD&D leaders use to collect and report them.
One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure
and processes to better meet business needs.
