The Case Against Modifying Your Enterprise Software


Consider the case of two hypothetical companies—Company A and Company Z—each using an identical enterprise software package delivering identical core functionality. Company A has the same number of users, but the total cost of ownership (TCO) experienced by Company Z is about twice the TCO enjoyed by Company A. Why? We explain.

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions


For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant configuration and integration. In contrast, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions can reduce the cost of a BI deployment by providing automation and pre-integration. Compare total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional, open source, and SaaS BI solutions.

More Efficient Virtualization Management: Templates


Historically, IT administrators have provisioned new servers with every new application, resulting in a large number of servers with utilization rates of 10 to 15 percent or less, commonly known as server sprawl. Server sprawl is responsible for a range of costs, including infrastructure, hardware, software, and management costs. So why hasn’t hardware virtualization solved your server sprawl issues yet?

Voice over IP Manageability


The average personal computer (PC) costs an enterprise $10,000 (USD) per year to own and maintain—five times the purchase price of the hardware and software! Is it possible to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of technology platforms? Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) manageability can be a crucial step in self-provisioning users and unburdening valuable network professionals.

Impact of HBA Performance on Server Virtualization


Server consolidation is the reason enterprises deploy server virtualization technologies across their data centers, improving server and processor use. As more virtual servers are consolidated onto a single server, demand is increased on the central processing unit (CPU) and host bus interfaces. However, you can do more with less by deploying a fibre channel host bus adapter, enhancing your server consolidation levels.

State of the Art in TCO: Managing the Total Cost of Ownership


Total cost of ownership (TCO) is one of the most difficult metrics to benchmark. Even when using the clearest of metrics, companies often obtain inadequate results. Instead of thinking solely about how to calculate and reduce TCO, companies should think about how to manage TCO from a business perspective, in order to leverage solid, results-oriented decisions about IT solutions.

Protecting Virtual Servers with Acronis True Image


While virtualization technology can simplify server management and reduce operating costs, in production environments it presents a disaster-recovery challenge. The problem: simply backing up a host server doesn’t always ensure that data within virtual machines is recoverable. With Acronis’s True Image, IT managers can rest assured their data, settings, applications, and operating systems are protected against disaster.

The TCO of BI: The QlikView Customer Experience


Total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis allows organizations to provide a like-for-like comparison between various solutions for the same project. Assuming that the benefits of a project would be the same regardless of the solution, the solution with a lower TCO would therefore yield a higher ROI as well as faster payback. This IDC white paper provides a TCO analysis of the QlikView business intelligence (BI) solution.

Managed Hosting in Europe: A Review of the Managed Hosting Market and Suppliers in Europe


The increasing use of virtualization allowed managed hosting providers to reduce costs by sharing infrastructure between customers, creating the earliest versions of what is now known as cloud computing. Platforms managed by specialists provide higher service levels, greater ease of secure access, and more manageable costs than many companies can achieve internally.

From AD to LDAP through Virtualization: How Virtualization Addresses the Challenges of Authentication and Authorization Across Disparate User Directories


For web single sign-on (SSO), and consistent enforcement of authorization across all applications, many web access management (WAM) packages offer an excellent and proven approach. However, they assume a relatively homogeneous identity environment. This white paper describes how virtualization solves the issue of directory integration with an approach that is cost effective, nonintrusive, and easy to deploy.
