(English) How to optimize your Information Technology Infrastructure?
Interview to Cristian Randieri PhD, President & CEO. As an IT Engineer many times I asked me this question “How to optimize your Information Technology Infrastructure?”
Doing different research on Internet I found and liked the report “Optimize IT Infrastructure to Maximize Workload Performance” edited by Aberdeen.com. It finds that many organizations today are struggling to understand, manage and optimize their infrastructure to meet the complex and demanding workloads of this new business era. However, this report also reveals the strategies of companies that are leaders in high performing IT infrastructures. By understanding the success factors and the strategies in the full report, it is possible to learn how to achieve the full benefit of an optimized IT infrastructure.
Briefly the key success factors can be summarize in:
1- Take advantage of automated processes by understanding your application delivery infrastructure from end to end.

2- Adopt and deploy new technologies and trends.
It is crucial that your IT organizations stay continuously updated (through leading publications and the web) to the last technology trends that are helping to improve the quality of IT infrastructures, such as the last technology about cloud, big data and mobile. With this new technologies transforming it is crucial that organizations take advantage of trends like cloud and big data in order to optimize their service delivery.
3- Improve server and management platforms to boost the entire company.
Improved uptime, performance and workload management need not end with critical enterprise applications and IT services. All IT services are critical in their own way and Best-in-Class IT shops can ensure that their IT hardware brings benefits across the company.
4- Make IT a full business partner with an IT service centric approach.
Imitate the leading organizations that ensure for the IT a seat at the management table by converging systems and breaking down the walls between operations, networking, development and the business side. With added focus on performance, reliability and efficiency, leaders gain optimized IT infrastructures that meet end-user needs and boost productivity.
5 – Update your IT infrastructure.
Today more that on the past no one IT infrastructure can succeed by relying on old and out of date hardware. By taking advantage of the best of modern hardware and management platforms you must optimize your entire business for success.
