Virtualisation and consolidation speed time to market and save costs
Sogeti is seeing a trend as its consulting customers across all industries seek more agility and flexibility to provide additional services and speed time to market despite flat or declining operating budgets. Many data centres inhibit this vision because they have multiple infrastructure layers that are difficult to maintain. To reduce costs and improve time to market, customers must virtualize and consolidate resources.
Sogeti experienced concerns similar to its customers and, as a consulting company, it wanted to address its internal concerns as well as help its customers streamline their infrastructure. The company's five complex and fragmented server environments were difficult to maintain and evolve. A more flexible infrastructure would mean that Sogeti could more quickly implement projects for its customers. In addition, a consolidated,cloud-enabled solution with a single point of management would help reduce costs and accelerate deployment.
