In the modern business world, the COO has a plethora of assignments for their respective business. Most notably, their goals include overseeing day to day operations, streamlining efficiency, improving areas of need, and reporting any possible issues to the CEO. However, as the business world becomes increasingly more and more technological, these issues and improvements are becoming all the more complex. COOs not quite adept with modern technology such as virtualization, may be at a loss as to how to fix a problem within their IT. A problem that could have devastating results to their uptime, their efficiency, and overall, the operating costs of the company, especially in the day in age of companies being expected to run 24/7. Here to fix all of those issues, in a timely, cost effective, and efficient manner, is Nimble Storage.
The main appeal of Nimble Storage is the feature known as InfoSight, a program that uses predictive analytics to provide a proactive approach to problems, rather than reactive. What this means to a COO is that instead of having to react to a potentially devastating emergency, they are notified before the incident of problems within the system. Additionally, Nimble uses another feature known as “heartbeats” that takes in information from every customers’ storage system every five minutes. This allows Nimble to essentially oversee the day to day operations of an organization’s IT, effectively accomplishing part of the COO’s job for them. This allows the COO to turn their focus towards other, less foreign aspects of the company, increasing efficiency and productivity. Moreover, there are less potential issues to be reported to the CEO, certainly providing relief to both parties. According to case studies, the typical IT staff spends 60-90% resolving storage issues, meaning more time is allocated to more productive matters.
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Lastly, in terms of TCO and performance, Nimble is extraordinarily cost effective. Analysis has shown the service to have 33-66% lower TCO than the competition, none of which have the predictive analytics to ensure a proactive approach. In addition, companies have experienced 60% savings on the operating costs of data centers, a very appealing statistic to COO’s and CFO’s alike.
To put it simply, let Nimble handle the storage for the company, so they can get back to doing what they do best, in a more productive manner.
