According to HP, Middle East businesses use less than a third of current IT resources available to them. A seminar, hosted by the computing giant, attracted 130 IT and technical managers across the Middle East region to discuss the next generation of IT strategies available to companies. The event encouraged organisations to make the transition from high-cost IT islands to low-cost IT assets and marked IT consolidation, business continuity and availability, and comprehensive information lifecycle management solutions (ILM) - enabling organisations to capitalise on business information - as key strategies for companies to adopt. “Enterprises and SMB’s across the region now realise the impact of a sound IT infrastructure on overall business performance. The market is extremely robust and competitive and there is need now for organisations to embrace change more than ever before," said Fawwaz Qadan, employee self-service director at HP Middle East. HP claims the new features will optimise server density by up to 40% and reduce administrator time spent managing servers and warranty information as part of its unified infrastructure management solution. The latest software additions include advanced management for server and blade environments and should allow customers to take control of their IT resources by providing enhanced power, performance and asset management. “Today’s Data Centres are high-cost IT islands where systems are dedicated to specific applications or processes resulting in server and storage resources not being shared - this silo-based approach means companies continue to buy new servers while already owning massive amounts of under-utilised capacity. “Our adaptive infrastructure portfolio helps companies create solid and robust infrastructures by delivering improved cost efficiencies and quality of service thereby increasing overall productivity,” Tenzing Chopathar, marketing manager at adaptive infrastructure, HP EMEA concluded.
