'Time for Change: Optimizing Datacenter Infrastructure with Technology Refresh': IDC Whitepaper [29781]
Survey Reveals Positive ROI, Payback, Productivity Results

The authors of the IDC white paper "Time for Change: Optimizing Datacenter Infrastructure with Technology Refresh," Randy Perry and Susan G. Middleton, identified the benefits from a survey of seven enterprises that had recently undergone a refresh of their Unix server storage and operating environment. The survey focused as a secondary issue on the results of partnering with Oracle to support their respective consolidation efforts. The datacenter refreshes provided a three-year ROI of 267% and a payback in less than 13 months. One overriding principle the authors derived from their survey is that recent experience with IT infrastructure does not project linearly into the near future.

Chris Kawalek and John Renko Discuss the Strategy

Listen to Chris Kawalek, Senior Principal Product Director in Oracle Desktop Virtualization Marketing Group, and John Renko, Consulting Developer in the Oracle Desktop Virtualization Engineering Team, discuss management of BYOD in the workplace. Among the biggest problems facing IT staffs is the proliferation of OSes these BYODs use. Simplicity should be the watchword on the client side, Kawalek suggests and Renko concurs. Leave the complexity in the datacenter, he says, noting that a single desktop in multiple locations, whatever the end user device, is the desired state.
