Track 5: Transform your existing IT infrastructure and get ready for cloud (Business)
A CIO’s focus on business strategy, and their understanding of how technology can improve business growth and innovation, has a direct impact on their success and their efforts to drive that innovation. Inversely, discounting opportunities to reduce complexity and risk will bring forth disruption to the business far worse than any competitor. Through IT Optimization, Red Hat partners with customers to incrementally and methodically modernize their infrastructure in order to provide operational efficiency. It serves as both the catalyst for change and a means of freeing up critically needed budget for innovation. Using market data and case studies, attendees will learn how IT Optimization reduces costs for customers through:
- Standardization on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Management solutions to address security and risk
- Security policy creation, visibility and enforcement that is consistent across infrastructures
- Executive and user-level reporting for security, governance, and compliance

Selling Red Hat management solutions has a positive impact for sales people as well:
- Earning more quota from new accounts
- Expand their footprint in existing accounts
