IT Infrastructure

Aging IT Infrastructure and facilities, combined with fierce competition and savvy business users, have led many IT executives to retool their approach toward IT infrastructure. Furthermore, they are continually being challenged to keep up with demand for increased infrastructure capacity and services, more agility and decreased time-to market, all while trying to reduce costs. This may be a challenging time, but it also presents opportunities to deploy innovative infrastructure services that enable mobile access and incorporate streamlined processes in order to improve IT services, availability and utilization.

The IT organization of the future assumes the role of broker and orchestrator of business services and technology innovation.

PwC helps its clients to:

Reallocate infrastructure spend from operations to innovation

CIOs can often get more from their IT budgets by reevaluating existing cost structures and redirecting noncore expenditures toward technology initiatives. Reap greater rewards by investing in infrastructure innovations that support your business goals, rather than business as is.

Lower IT costs through new technology

An IT infrastructure built for flexibility can be critical to growth. In many cases, CIOs can improve customer satisfaction, increase speed to market and gain competitive advantage by adopting a dynamic IT infrastructure that includes facility design, power and cooling while simultaneously transitioning to a service-based operating model in order to streamline operations.

Optimize technology services in order to improve stakeholder experience

The cloud, mobile technology, SaaS, social media and other emerging technologies are forcing executives to deal with higher demand for both employee and customer satisfaction. And the first step in doing more for less today is increasing your technology investments.

Build an IT infrastructure that can respond to changing priorities

Technology has moved to the fore as overburdened CIOs balance ongoing business requirements with preparedness for new opportunities. But technological investment is futile if the next generation of tech specialists is not ready to continue building your firm.

Make smart decisions about IT infrastructure

IT departments must make new investments wisely. Internal considerations and outsourcing options must be weighed in order to ensure the right assets are put in place at the lowest cost. In order to build IT infrastructure that will function tomorrow, make the right IT provisions today.

Optimize disaster recovery plans

Firms industrywide are now under pressure to maintain operations while contending with increased regulations and intensifying competitive pressures. And with global web transactions now taking place around the clock, any down time courts the risk of lost revenue or opportunities, possible breaches of regulatory or contractual obligations and tarnished brand name or reputation. Now is the time to invest in measures that ensure your firm can weather the unexpected.
