As a company grows, its information technology infrastructure must also grow, typically becoming more complex, more costly to maintain, and subject to continually increasing demands. Often, the IT infrastructure does not align well with strategic business needs, making it difficult for the organization to realize the full value of its technology investments. In this webcast, see how Microsoft applies the concept of infrastructure optimization to strategically and systematically move its capabilities from a reactive mode to a more mature proactive approach.
