Time: 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

A new model for IT operational efficiency is needed as rapid growth with virtualized and converged infrastructures are supplanting the traditional operational towers, tools, and processes. While the CAPEX cost savings gained through the convergence of virtualization, networking, compute, storage and management technologies into "virtual building blocks" are well understood. The OPEX efficiencies to be gained through such an approach not only exceed the CAPEX savings achieved through greater utilization of physical assets, they enable virtualization on an even larger scale. Learn how the combination of Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS) with Intelligent Automation and SAP's ERP4IT are instrumental in helping IT organizations realize the OPEX savings by shifting the operation of infrastructure and SAP applications to the new model of end-to-end run book automation.
