Introducing HPE CloudPhysics: Data-driven insights for smarter IT decisions
Every organization undergoing digital transformation needs to optimize IT from edge to cloud in order to move faster and speed the time to innovation. But every IT infrastructure purchase forces decision-makers to confront several difficult questions: What’s the right infrastructure configuration to meet service level agreements (SLAs)? Where should we modernize – on-premises or in the cloud? And how do I demonstrate ROI in order to proceed?
There are no uniform answers. Each customer is at a different stage in their own transformation journey — and every one faces unique challenges. To sort out purchasing decisions, customers are typically stuck pouring through spreadsheets and applying heuristics to try to understand all the intricate dependencies of their workloads on their underlying infrastructure.
Meanwhile, partners and sellers are similarly challenged to provide a unique value proposition — based on very little or zero visibility — that’s tailored to the customer’s environment.
This has created an IT infrastructure planning and buying process that is randomly inaccurate, time-consuming, wasteful, and ultimately elevates risk in meeting SLAs.
At HPE, we know our customers and partners rely on us to deliver the right products and solutions to help them adjust to new and emerging needs. We’ve already put our infrastructure on autopilot through a predictive model of support and management that’s powered by the data-driven insights of HPE InfoSight. Now we’re extending data-driven insight to operations — helping customers and partners monitor, analyze, and optimize customer IT in new ways and deliver solutions that drive better business outcomes.
With the introduction of HPE CloudPhysics, we’re enabling data-driven insights to power smarter IT decisions from edge to cloud. Our partners and customers will now be able to better collaborate on optimizing application workload placement, procuring right-sized infrastructure, lowering costs, and transforming the IT purchasing experience.
