CHICAGO, March 15 It's rare when technology is actually saving more money than it's costing. The notion of having more than 100 physical servers didn't make any economical sense to Kiran Sivaraam, Infrastructure Manager at Rising Medical Solutions, a Chicago-based medical cost containment company. So he led the company in the virtualization of 80 percent of its 130 servers to deliver substantial savings, handle increased demands and test new ideas.
Sivaraam not only spearheads technology innovations, he shares them. On Tuesday, March 16 hundreds of professionals from all industries will descend upon the Donald E. Stephen's Convention Center for NetworkWorld's IT Roadmap Conference and Expo: Everything You Need to Know About IT in 2010.
Technology experts from Nemertes Research, NiSource, BP and East Grand Rapids Public Schools will join Sivaraam to talk about how to "Transform the Business with IT." Sivaraam will also lead discussions on "The Business Benefits of Virtualization" and "Beyond Consolidation: Mining the Benefits of Virtualization." Sivaraam's firsthand experience will provide other IT professionals and business owners with the necessary practical tactics to stay on top despite economic restraints.
"The bottom-line is every business owner's concern right now. There's simply no excuse for technology to be anything but a cost saver to a company," says Sivaraam. "Virtualization also provides the much needed agility to meet every company's disaster recovery and high availability objectives. It enables IT to keep critical business applications running even when there are hardware failures. Ultimately, it helps us realize the goal of being up 24/7."
The changes Sivaraam has made through virtualization saves Rising at least $40,000 annually, freeing up money and manpower for other areas of the business. Sivaraam provides an easy, methodical approach to virtualization that every company can adopt to simplify their existing system and cut costs. Hearing his success story firsthand may just be the strategic solution to unlock cost savings for other companies.
