De-risking Network Transformation

on ‎08-08-2014 03:07 PM

Many IT leaders are only too aware that traditional approaches to networking have become a major bottleneck for progress – today’s networks are highly static, overprovisioned, underutilized, hard to scale, and blind to application requirements. And they’re also aware that new approaches like Software-defined Networking and open architectures can dramatically improve performance.

 

So what’s holding IT organizations back from taking action to revitalize the network? In a word: risk. One network exec has compared network transformation to doing open-heart surgery on an Olympic athlete while he’s in the middle of a gold-medal race! Ron Irvine, HP Global Consulting Portfolio Director for Mobility and Networking, tells that story in the video below – and he also explains how businesses can take the fear out of network overhauls with HP’s flexible, business-aligned, risk-reduced model: the HP Trusted Network Transformation.

 

 

Big improvement doesn’t have to mean big risk: HP network expert Jeff Enters puts it in a nutshell in the video below.
