blog If you believed the extensive media release issued by global technology giant HP in March this year, it’s the sole driving force behind the extensive IT outsourcing and transformation plan at diversified materials company Boral. HP’s deploying its own bladeservers, storage, backupe systems, networking switches and routers, and even its PCs and laptops. However, as is the norm in the larger IT departments, the truth is that Boral’s IT environment is a great deal more heterogenuous than HP would like us to believe. Late last month Oracle issued its own media release with respect to Boral. A quote from Boral:
“We were attracted to Oracle Engineered Systems because of the way in which they combine servers, storage and software all pre-engineered to work together, and the resulting performance, scalability and flexibility they offer. This meant we had much lower capital set-up costs against comparable traditional infrastructure, with up to 20 per cent saving on software licenses. Our use of Oracle Cloud Management Services also means we have a single platform managed by a single company. This has helped us regain control over our IT maintenance cycles, in particular around patching,” said Robert Lutz, IT Project Office Manager, Boral.
