BLOG: Flexible IT infrastructure in a dynamic world

Natasha Kwan, Managing Director, Asia South, T-Systems | Feb. 4, 2014
In this article, we highlight three key factors that compel the region’s MNCs to take a collaborative approach to maintaining IT infrastructure, by implementing Dynamic Services rather than resort to conventional in-house ICT infrastructures.

Minimise in-house administration

Corporate ICT can demand massive resources. A recent study by Data Management Institute shows that administration accounts for a staggering 80 percent of total storage cost, with just 20 percent for the actual hardware. By implementing Dynamic Services and migrating IT infrastructure to privately managed cloud, in-house administrative processes and operations are streamlined. Valuable IT team resources are therefore freed up from the tedious, yet critical, day to day tasks, enabling the prioritisation of higher value work, which can drive forward the core business.

Reduce costs

Finally, the cost benefits of outsourcing ICT infrastructure processes to a Dynamic Services model means that functions across all in-house ICT applications, platforms and locations are simplified. This lowers the management time required in day-to-day IT operations, thereby reducing cost.

Dynamic Services privately managed cloud enables organisations to reduce licensing costs by only paying for what is being utilised. In a market where cloud licensing costs could increase exponentially as a company grows, the flexibility to scale according to business requirements can lead to significant cost savings for enterprises.
