|Cut back your spend on software assets|
Do you think your software costs are still too high when your goal was to decrease them? Could these costs rise even more if one of your vendors requests an audit of their software? Join HP and McKesson on May 7 to hear a discussion about controlling your spend on software assets.
Automate your infrastructure tasks and business processes
Automating business processes lets IT be more agile and establish repeatable workflows that do not require manual intervention. These workflows form the basis of a scalable automation platform that is well-documented for consistency and data center standards. The automated orchestration of these business processes improves collaboration among various departments and provides wider visibility to drive informed decision-making. Register for the May 9 webinar and learn how automating common processes can improve your ROI.
