HP IT consolidated from 85 ancient data centers running old IT technology to six new mega data centers with modern IT running transformed applications in the late 2000’s. That achievement resulted in (literally) billions saved through a meshing of significantly more efficient data centers, utilization of then-current IT technology, and application transformation. Since achieving that, HP IT has set and achieved higher goals several times, including deploying ultra-efficient modular data centers with containerized infrastructure, cloud and low-power solutions, and further application modernization. The author, the strategist and technology for HP IT data centers globally, will discuss how by executing a plan that encompasses the data center facility, modern IT equipment, and application modernization together, the total benefits can be further increased over the significant benefits from individually addressing each, using examples from HP IT’s own transformation.
