Remote and branch offices are where most of an organization's employees reside, and are often a critical customer interface where business is won or lost. IT teams are challenged with the costs of setting up and maintaining remote offices, providing data security between and within sites, and creating an agile infrastructure that delivers a platform for future capabilities at remote sites. The Microsoft Infrastructure Optimization (IO) Model is designed to help enterprises understand the current state of their IT infrastructure and devise a road map to increase business capabilities and agility. Within the Core IO model, remote infrastructure optimization outlines elements that are tailored to remote sites to help develop a progression road map. Against the challenges outlined above (cost control, security, and agility), remote infrastructure optimization helps customers control costs of managing and supporting remote offices, improving security, and driving agility. This session aims at highlighting the challenges, current trends, and optimization strategies from Microsoft.
