Gyrocom Launches Workshops to Help Not-for-profits Reduce their IT Spend

Back to Our News | « Previous | Next »

Chertsey UK - IT infrastructure specialist Gyrocom is offering to help Not-for-profit organisations to reduce their IT overheads through free on-site workshops.

Graham Brown, MD of Gyrocom said, "IT infrastructure is the largest sunk cost in organisations today. Gartner states that '50p on every £1 spent on IT infrastructure is wasted'. That's not good enough. We simplify the understanding of how much IT production capacity an organisation has. This shouldn't be a conversation about CPU, memory, storage and network bandwidth. If it is then it's an IT thing and that's not what we are aiming for here. A blended quantification of capacity is where we need to be – the kilowatt-hour of IT so to speak."

By the end of the workshop you will know:

  • How much infrastructure you have deployed
  • How much of that you are using
  • How much of that you are wasting
  • How much you can actually use (given your current workloads)

Armed with this information puts you in a much better position to make business decisions. Gyrocom will also make recommendations on how best to reduce the wastage and gain optimum IT spend ensuring significant savings whilst protecting performance and reducing your carbon footprint. Early adopters are enjoying savings in excess of 50%.

"The difference between how much IT you have and how much you actually use can take a lot of organisations by surprise." says Brown, "It's time to change the way we think and talk about IT making it a business not a technical conversation and affording organisations a degree of visibility and control not previously available."
