SOAWorld: Efficient Data Center Transformation

You don’t need to go very far in IT nowadays to find people who are diligently working to do more with less, even as they're working to transform and modernize their environments.

One way to keep the interest high -- and those operating and investment budgets in place -- is to show fast results, and then use that to prime the pump for even more improvement -- and even more funding -- with perhaps even growing budgets.

This is the second in a series of podcast on data center transformation (DCT) best practices and is presented in conjunction with a complementary video series.
