Let's turn now to how HP brings measurable value to thousands of customers through automation.
[STEP 1] We provide this automation in three key areas that actually align with the stepping stones we've outlined: at the business level, at the operations level and at the infrastructure level.
[STEP 2] At the infrastructure level, initiatives we see customers undertaking include automated provisioning, compliance, and configuration management, positioning them for a climb to the next rung of the ladder. [DRAW OVER RED ARROW WITH GREEN]
[STEP 3] One of our customers in the technology space began automating to meet SOX compliance audits. What used to take 32 weeks to define standards, manually identify servers to be included in the audit, and then complete the audit and write up a report -- now takes ONLY TWO DAYS. That's because they leverage the out-of-the-box compliance tests and procedures we provide.
They utilize our server groups to organize the "stuff" into groups which adhere to the compliance standards that have been defined. Finally, audits are run on a regular basis and results are used to create a report which can be handed directly to an auditor.
[STEP 4] Another example is from a retail customer of ours with a configuration management initiative. They had been managing their networks with vendor tools and through the sheer knowledge and willpower of their heroes. To detect and fix a network configuration issue used to take two weeks, on average.
By leveraging real time change detection, integration with change management systems, and compliance tests, it now takes 90 minutes, on average.
[STEP 5] With basic, sensible automation in place, the "heroes" down here spend less time on manual/mundane tasks and can focus their attention on strategic initiatives, for example, shared infrastructure and private cloud [DRAW SMILEY FACE].
