Title: Reducing IT Costs and Increasing IT Efficiency by Integrating Platform-Virtualization in the Enterprise
Author: Rasmussen, Erik R.
Abstract: Selected literature, published between 1999 and 2009, is examined in relation to reducing IT cost and increasing IT efficiency through implementation of platform-virtualization within the enterprise. Virtualization can reduce IT cost through server consolidation, test and development agility, licensing consolidation, standardization, and/or power and physical space consolidation. It can also increase IT efficiency through centralized administration and/or security, support of legacy systems, reduction of server downtime, and/or providing the staff training on a new technology.
