HP Helps Organizations Break IT Innovation Gridlock


HP today announced products, solutions and services that help organizations shift their IT spending from operations to innovation.

ebizQ received the following:

New research conducted on behalf of HP reveals that one out of every two business executives feel their companies suffer from “innovation gridlock,” in which IT organizations are blocked from driving new business innovation because the majority of their funding is consumed by operating the current environment. More than one out of every two business and technology executives feel this gridlock is preventing their organizations from keeping up with the competition.

This gridlock also carries inherent costs. Ninety-five percent of respondents said innovation gridlock cost them lost opportunities; 93 percent indicated it cost them in terms of lost effort from resources; and 99 percent said it cost them lost time.

HP’s new offerings allow organizations to break the IT innovation gridlock by:

  • Creating self-funding projects that allow transformation within current budgetary constraints and offer quick paybacks.
  • Architecting new solutions for change so IT organizations can quickly and easily add new functionality as the business requires it. This ensures that today’s innovation does not become tomorrow’s legacy.
  • Freeing up funds trapped in operations. Organizations should find ways to drive a continual reduction in operating costs through best practices and technology. This lowers the steady-state costs of operations and reclaims funds for innovation.

“In this era of constant change, breaking the innovation gridlock can mean the difference between being a market maker or a follower,” said Thomas E. Hogan, executive vice president, Sales, Marketing and Strategy, HP Enterprise Business. “With HP, CIOs can capitalize on change by reclaiming funds locked in operations to drive new innovation projects.”

Self-fund the journey

HP is offering qualified clients a complimentary, hands-on HP Applications Modernization Transformation Experience session, which enables organizations to experience modernization and its benefits. By retiring legacy applications and eliminating complexity in technology environments, organizations are able to self-fund their modernization journeys.

In addition, new HP Modernization Funding Options provide clients with access to capital based on the value of existing systems, helping to fund investments in new technology and innovation.

Advancements to the HP Insight Control server management software suite include HP Integrated Lights-Out Advanced (iLO 3), which significantly improves system operations and efficiency throughout the server life cycle. Addressing one of the largest operational cost centers for most enterprises, iLO 3 can lower administration costs through simplified server setup, power and thermal optimization, and embedded system health monitoring.

HP also introduced additional HP ProLiant servers – the DL360 G7 and DL380 G7.­ These servers advance traditional server economics by exponentially improving cost-efficiency while increasing performance. HP ProLiant G7 servers deliver a 20:1 or greater consolidation ratio, a 27 times performance-per-watt increase, and an industry-leading two-month return on investment.(4) After the initial payback, these servers continue to deliver savings that can be used to invest in new IT projects.

Architect new solutions for change

The HP Cloud Service Automation (CSA) solution enables clients to architect their IT environments for change by accelerating the deployment and automated management of private and public cloud initiatives.

With the new HP CSA solution, clients can improve efficiency, free up resources and lower the risks associated with the adoption and management of cloud services. This allows them to capitalize on new cloud-based services to quicken time to market. HP CSA is part of the company’s initiative to combine its software portfolio with consulting expertise to help clients successfully adopt and manage the entire life cycle of cloud services.

Free up funds trapped in operations

New services from HP help companies create cost-efficient technology infrastructures that are consistently reliable, readily scalable and totally secure. HP delivers people, process and technology improvements that identify the root causes of unplanned downtime in complex environments.

  • An expanded HP Mission Critical Services portfolio delivers multilevel support for the entire virtualized environment including hardware, operating systems and hypervisors. As part of this expansion, the HP Mission Critical Partnership now delivers support for multivendor x86 environments.
  • Available through the updated line of HP Proactive Services, new HP IT Service Management Assessment for Virtualized Environments increases the operational efficiency of virtualized environments and frees up operational costs through expert recommendations and priority improvements.
  • A new HP Financial Solution Analysis offers enterprise clients a customized assessment of direct and indirect costs, as well as benefits associated with implementation of IT solutions. Organizations can make better financial decisions by analyzing a full spectrum of costs related to IT and can then free up funds that are trapped in operations.
