Rushed sourcing cycles (redlining storage, app-driven upgrades),
newer paradigms (virtualization), and the high risk of change
make this subcategory particularly vulnerable to overspending.

It doesn't have to happen.


NPI’s IT cost management experts work with clients throughout their budget year to drive cost out of hardware, network and data center spend. Typical sub-categories of spend and the services we provide include:

  • Servers & Storage-  Conduct benchmarking analyses for cost effectiveness in the highly complex areas of network infrastructure/management, server technology and data storage alternatives on all platforms.
  • End User Devices- Identify IT cost reduction opportunities through purchase consolidation, planned replacement, alternative approaches to maintenance and support, and BYOD.
  • Disaster Recovery-  Ensure fair market value for new or ongoing disaster recovery investments.
  • Virtualization- Evaluate virtualization proposals to identify the most cost-effective strategy for each client’s unique requirements.
  • Data Center-   Verify fair market value for current data center spend, analyze cost/benefit of third-party data center hosting, and execute IT price benchmarking strategies to evaluate cost effectiveness.

Infrastructure cost control and asset management have become increasingly complicated with the rise of BYOD, cloud computing and managed services . The majority of today’s enterprises employ a hybrid computing, device and network infrastructure, often sacrificing visibility into spending and vendor management.
NPI brings clarity to hardware, network and data center overspending, and helps clients eliminate it.

NPI PERSPECTIVES on Hardware Support Costs

Gartner estimates that the global IT industry will top $3.6 trillion in sales by the end of 2012.
One of the largest upticks in spending can be found in computing hardware, with an estimated
increase of 6.6 percent.
