With the Broadview Networks and Dell Efficient Enterprise vision, technology infrastructures are open, capable and affordable. Products and services for the data center are flexible and avoid locking your organization into using a single vendor or proprietary technologies that contribute to increased TCO and limit future choice. The Broadview and Dell vision also blend new technology with existing infrastructure, existing expertise and industry-standard approaches designed to drive down TCO and complexity.
We begin with a three-step approach to help your organization unlock enterprise efficiency and achieve significant returns on your IT investment. The first step on the journey is to optimize the existing data center infrastructure, with the goal of achieving uniformity and cutting costs. The next step is to simplify the technology infrastructure. Using pragmatic approaches such as virtualization and storage consolidation, your organization can consolidate or unify redundancies to help ensure that you are getting the most out of their data center resources. Rationalizing and reducing the number of applications also enhances the flexibility to easily remove and repurpose servers. The third step is to implement best practices that help reduce manual intervention and boost productivity, together with cloud-based delivery models that help reduce administrative burdens on IT staff and enhance application availability.
