The HP Converged Infrastructure Capability Model (CI-CM) helps you assess the current and desired future state of your data center. CI-MM uses a set of metrics based on research and industry best practices that enable alignment between business and IT objectives. After your CI-MM engagement, you will have an action-oriented, high-level roadmap for reaching your current and future data center objectives.
How it works
HP CI-MM includes data gathering, review and analysis of information specific to your environment. This is followed by a workshop on the results and priorities for your IT organization. From this, HP experts develop and deliver a pragmatic, action-oriented set of customer-specific recommendations and your suggested high-level roadmap.
Recommendations include different approaches or project types you can choose to move your organization forward. You can then define actionable — and measurable — steps and project types based on quantitative metrics, benchmark standards and best practices. With a roadmap tailored to your priorities and environment, you can make decisions that are more accurate, relevant and substantiated. Ultimately, you will better understand how the actions you take will contribute to meeting your technological goals.

Increased application availability from 99.89% to 99.996%
With benefits this compelling and ROI frequently achieved in less than 12 months, it's time to get on board and leverage HP Converged Infrastructure for better business results.
HP Converged Infrastructure can accelerate your IT to achieve better business results.
HP Converged Infrastructure solutions help you overcome the inflexibility and high costs created by IT sprawl to shift more resources to innovation and strategic initiatives. The HP approach and solutions have been designed to help make the data center simpler, more flexible, more efficient and less expensive to operate.
Only then is your IT infrastructure positioned to deliver any workload, anywhere, anytime to "accelerate time to application and business value". And do so whether you choose to build it on-premises, outsource it, deploy a cloud environment, or implement a hybrid model of all three.
Extracting the full value of infrastructure convergence is all about simplifying and accelerating the provisioning of IT services and applications. This is achieved by optimally integrating servers, storage, networking, security, power, cooling, and facilities into shared pools of interoperable resources â€“ all managed through a common management platform.
Knowing our customers have unique requirements, the HP Converged Infrastructure solution portfolio has been designed to expedite your move forward in two ways â€” TRANSFORM quickly or EVOLVE at your own pace.
Either path you choose, HP Converged Infrastructure solutions optimize virtualization to increase utilization and flexibility. They are resilient to support mission-critical applications and increase business continuity. They are based on open industry standards to integrate with your existing data center environment and prevent vendor lock-in. They are orchestrated to increase agility and reduce operational costs. And they are modular to scale seamlessly as your business grows.
