In the enterprise environment, having an effective Windows environment requires a large technology investment and employing the help of skilled engineers and technicians. Maintaining a robust, reliable and performing infrastructure takes analysis and planning. Leading publications surveying IT executives revealed common trends and priorities for CIOs and other IT executives. Top among them were: aligning IT with business needs and priorities, accuracy of information to comply with government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, network security, measuring the value of IT investments, and IT governance. Needing to remain competitive, manage costs and improve IT efficiency, they continue to invest in new ways to manage the infrastructure. To be effective, their investments have to take the complexity out of Systems Management and enhance organizational flexibility.

When adopting new solutions, two issues that IT executives must address are improving operating efficiencies/cost reduction, and increasing the speed and flexibility of business. Thus, their IT organization adds value to the enterprise and is not just a cost center. According to Forrester, improving the efficiency of IT operations is a priority for 61% of SMBs. Looking at the larger picture, some of the drivers dictating IT spend priorities are: increasing efficiencies, reducing resource consumption, ensuring a quick integration/ implementation process, reducing the cost of maintaining the infrastructure and accelerate results that correlate to existing business needs. Among the highest priority are several IT Optimization initiatives such as standardizing processes, introducing new applications into existing IT infrastructure, and improving utilization of hardware and software.
