The ROI Story

Evaluating and Justifying Disruptive Technology

Disruptive technology such as hyper-converged infrastructure tends to significantly complicate the buying decision. It forces new operational procedures and can impact IT governance, security, and compliance. But even a strong financial justification might not be enough to alter the ingrained processes, interests, and cultural norms surrounding the legacy environment. In many cases, it takes an ROI story.

This webinar will assist anyone interested in how to use financial analysis as a framework to optimize strategic decision-making.

Attend and receive a free copy of the eBook, The ROI Story: A Guide for IT Leaders and the IDC whitepaper, sponsored by Nutanix, Organizations Leverage Nutanix Enterprise Cloud as Scalable, High-Performing, and Cost-Effective Infrastructure Foundation.
