In the modern business world, the chief operating officer (COO) has a plethora of assignments for the respective businesses. Most notably, their goals include:
- Overseeing day-to-day operations
- Streamlining efficiency
- Improving areas of need
- Reporting potential issues to the CEO
However, as the business world becomes increasingly reliant on technology, the issues and improvements businesses see become more complex. COOs that are not adept with modern technology like virtualization may be at a loss as to how to fix an IT problem that could have a devastating effect on their company’s efficiency, uptime, and operating costs. Especially since companies today are expected to run 24/7.
Here to fix IT issues in a timely, cost effective, efficient manner is Nimble Storage.
InfoSight Provides Proactive Solutions
The main appeal of Nimble Storage is the InfoSight feature. This program uses predictive analytics to provide a proactive approach to IT problem rather than reactive ones. What this means is that instead of a COO reacting to an emergency, they are notified of problems with the system before the incident occurs.
Additionally, Nimble Storage uses another feature called “heartbeats” that takes in information from every customer’s storage system every five minutes, providing up-to-date analytics.
This allows Nimble Storage to oversee the day-to-day operations of a company’s IT, effectively accomplishing the job of the COO for them. In turn, the COO can focus on other aspects of the company, like improving efficiency and productivity.
Moreover, there are less potential issues to be reported to the CEO, certainly providing relief for both parties. According to case studies, the typical IT staff spends 60-90% of their time resolving storage issues, meaning less time towards more productive matters.
Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Finally, in terms of total cost ownership (TCO) and performance, Nimble Storage 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 their data centers; a very appealing statistic to COOs and CEOs alike.
For a more proactive, cost effective solution, let Nimble Storage handle the storage for your company. That way everyone can get back to doing what they do best.
