Latest infographic shows big results from private cloud and IaaS


Slow turn-around on infrastructure requests are hurting your business

For many enterprise IT departments, a majority of their business customers are not satisfied with the speed of application releases[i]. Twenty-five percent of app development time is spent waiting for manual or semi-manual provisioned infrastructure, using traditional or even virtualized datacenter architectures. When users’ needs are not met quickly, they will independently look to public cloud services and create the shadow IT environments that can lead to cost, security, compliance and long-term SLA issues.

Enterprise IT needs to meet the challenge of transforming their infrastructure delivery processes to keep up with the new speed of business—and their competition. IT infrastructure must become more agile to rapidly respond to developer requests so users are not kept waiting. IT must also become more automated to reduce IT complexity and increase IT staff efficiency.  How can you transform to rapid infrastructure provisioning with Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and put the right mix of private cloud and public cloud services to work for your organization?  What best practice capabilities are needed to ensure you can deliver on big reductions in both time-to-market and overall costs for developing and delivering new customer facing services and apps?

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has just released the Deliver Infrastructure in Minutes and Speed Ideas to Market infographic that visually brings together the latest research on best practice trends driving IT to transform to IaaS, the capabilities being used to implement it and why, along with the real benefits seen from rapid infrastructure delivery using private and public cloud services.

IaaS_infographic.jpgIt provides insight on how organizations are transforming their business to a hybrid infrastructure with cloud computing. This new hybrid infrastructure is providing faster self-service access to automated infrastructure services that meet both the reliable and efficient utilization needs of IT and the growing business demands for development, testing and production. The infographic also details six best practices and innovative capabilities recommended and used by other customers to deliver business agility and growth outcomes. These best practices and capabilities can be used to ensure your private cloud or IaaS solution meets the business’ expectations.
