Consolidation of platforms and databases provide many opportunities to save cost, increase agility and standardise operational procedures.
Deciding which layers of the technology stack to consolidate around however can present its own challenges as benefits in one area of the IT ecosystem can be eclipsed by additional cost or complexity in other areas.
Effective use of software licenses provides the greatest ROI. Non-stop advances in infrastructure and software capabilities open up new opportunities for organisations to extract greater value from their existing software investment.
Opportunities to consolidate and migrate existing database and application workloads allow organisations to deliver capabilities that may have been cost prohibitive in the past.
