Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Broadcast Change is the hardest thing that IT has to do, but it's a fact of life. How you deal with fundamental change can have a massive impact on the overall performance of the business, on user satisfaction and on how IT is valued. This is particularly true when there are a whole bunch of complex systems in place. You've just got them working, or at least stopped people complaining too much. Suddenly there's a new big idea, and a new set of tools and change management processes to consider.

Get private cloud right, and the rewards are plentiful – a much more effective use of the IT infrastructure and assets, a better performing business and happier users. But get it wrong and things may spiral out of control – where IT is not able to move with the business it risks being cut out of the loop as external services become ever easier to access.

If you're finding it's taking a bit too long to respond, or that things break when changed or just that there are too many things going on to try to deal with it all, then you need to consolidate and integrate the way you handle change. Building an end-to-end service management system may not be on the cards, but there is still a lot that can be done right now to tie things together. Live on February 28th at 16:30 GMT/08:30 PST The Register’s Tim Phillips is joined by Freeform Dynamic analyst Andrew Buss and CA Technologies’ Patrick Ancipink to go through the top of that to-do list. They will look at unifying the building blocks of the data centre – servers, storage and networking. Our experts will share best practices on how these things can work together rather than requiring three separate systems and teams to make change happen.

Join in the live discussion by sharing your own to-do list for making private cloud work in your business. We want to hear your experiences – what is working and what needs improving through the event’s Q&A window. You can register for this free event here and also get access to our on-demand version if you are unable to make the live event.
