dhc Advises on IT Budget Investment

Following the recent Economist Intelligence Unit survey of companies and their IT budgets, dhc, provider of integrated software solutions, is today advising organisations to recognise the benefits of investing in Client Relationship Management (CRM) tools to maintain and improve their competitive position. The results highlighted that 63% of UK and Irish companies surveyed are likely to increase their IT budgets in 2010 with 41% of firms stating that CRM software would receive “significant investment.”

Despite the economic climate causing IT budget cuts across many organisations and industries, businesses are still focused on increased customer retention and profitability. With this in mind, Surrey-based dhc is emphasising the need for companies to drive business growth whilst managing costs, and encouraging managers to deploy CRM solutions that allow seamless and secure delivery of business profitability.

“Every business is different, so flexibility and functionality is paramount to success,” said dhc’s Director, Matt Garman. “By deploying CRM solutions such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM, forward thinking companies will be able to make informed decisions in order to strengthen and improve their current customer relationships whilst embarking on new leads during the current economic conditions.”

Extreme Networks Data Centre Strategy Helps Organisations Migrate From The Physical To The Virtual To The Cloud

Extreme Networks is presenting its data centre network vision at this week’s Gartner’s Data Centre Conference in Las Vegas, providing a blueprint for the critical data centre transition ahead, migrating organisations from a physical network, to a virtual network to a location-independent cloud network.

The challenge in today’s data centre consists of transitioning to a virtualised environment while leveraging existing network investments. The migration of the data centre to a virtualised infrastructure means bringing visibility of virtual machines (VMs) to the network level and solving the department divide between switches and server staffs that has been introduced with virtualisation. Finally, organisations seek to avoid approaches that strand their assets and are tied to proprietary architectures.

“Extreme Networks has developed a network infrastructure solution that accommodates the evolving technology landscape in the data centre,” said Extreme Networks Chairman and co-founder, Gordon Stitt. “Our data centre infrastructure solution allows users to migrate from a traditional or ‘physical’ infrastructure to a virtual one, without forcing a certain technology, or operating methodology on the user.”
