Infrastructure optimization (IO) is the systematic process of reducing the complexity and costs of managing an IT infrastructure while improving  its security and stability to enhance productivity for both those who support the infrastructure and those who use the infrastructure to accomplish business goals. Microsoft developed the Infrastructure Optimization Model (IOM) using industry best practices and experiences of Microsoft customers. The IOM provides a framework for identifying the people, processes, and technology of an IT infrastructure and describes four levels of maturity through which those IT capabilities can evolve for greater strategic value. Infrastructure optimization is not a one-time event; it is a cyclical process of assessing capabilities, prioritizing, planning, and executing IO projects that can help build a more mature IT infrastructure, and then reassessing to plan additional IO projects. Come to this webcast to learn about the benefits of infrastructure optimization in your infrastructure, how it can help you gain greater value from your IT investments, and how it can enable your IT staff to contribute effectively to your company's overall business performance.
