Dell Technologies & WWT: Optimize Your IT Infrastructure

Optimize Your IT Infrastructure With Dell Technologies

Improved customer satisfaction and revenue

In a 2018 IDC white paper sponsored by Dell Technologies and Intel, organizations were identified as "Thrivers" or "Survivors" based on their success in using data to differentiate themselves and develop a competitive advantage. Thrivers have a deep understanding of their operational data and use this knowledge to improve customer satisfaction. These organizations experienced up to a 75 percent increase in customer satisfaction, a 70 percent increase in new customer acquisition and a six percent increase in per customer revenue. 

Improved customer satisfaction and revenue

 

Data protection benefits

For many organizations, a key motivator for modernizing infrastructure is gaining tighter security controls for improved data protection. Modern IT environments encounter 39 percent less security breaches and a 71 percent faster data recovery window.

 

Increased productivity and reduced costs

A modernized infrastructure allows IT staff to spend less time on day-to-day activities and more time delivering business value. IDC calculates that IT teams with modernized infrastructure are 35 percent more productive. Additionally, these teams spend 73 percent less time on unplanned downtime and 23 percent less on IT infrastructure costs.
