"Mainline Information Systems came to evaluate our server utilisation with the CDAT tool and the proposal they came back with reaffirmed to us that virtualising our System x servers is the best way to effectively support the business," said Frankenmuth's IT manager Curtis Williams. "By virtualising many of our physical servers we improved overall server utilisation rates to as high as 80 percent. We also benefit from a great ease of management, rapid deployment and thousands in cost savings per year."
"IBM CDAT is one of the most effective tools we utilise. It has enabled us to consistently achieve a 90 percent win rate with our customers," said Vic Verola, sales VP of IBM integrator Vicom Computer Services. "We are now able to deliver the same high quality studies that previously we were only able to do with our very large clients. Through 'Server Consolidation Made Simple,' the process to engage such clients is very easy, requiring minimum time investment while providing them with an accurate yet efficient proposal."
