HP Data Center Automation Implementation
A major U.S. cable operator purchased an enterprise automation solution called HP Data Center Automation (DCA) to achieve higher cost-efficiency, quality and compliance within their data centers nationally. While the software was being productively deployed in some areas of the business, the company struggled to achieve uniform and consistent adoption across the various business units within the enterprise.
To tap the full potential of the DCA suite and jumpstart its universal adoption, the company selected pureIntegration to provide the necessary leadership and expertise to identify and achieve clear goals for successful implementation.
pureIntegration led a specialized team of HP DCA, cable industry and program delivery experts that worked closely with the client’s operational delivery team to effectively deploy the DCA solution company-wide. Utilizing pureIntegration’s Data Center Automation Deployment Services (DCADS) methodology, the team quickly identified and prioritized the automation initiatives that would deliver business-focused results and demonstrate immediate and long-term returns on investment. Once priorities were established, the team launched a systematic plan that guided the DCA implementation from requirements gathering through deployment. Each initiative required direct consultation with end-users and other stakeholders to ensure their most important needs would be met by the final deliverables.
pureIntegration also worked with project owners to establish a framework for planning and prioritizing new incoming automation requests, ensuring a strategic approach to automation capability development that helped the client maintain the momentum necessary for organizational change.
The Business Benefits
With pureIntegration’s help, the client’s DCA capabilities were enabled across the entire enterprise and it has since achieved a 500% increase in functional, automated data centers. The client has also established a proven framework that can support exponential growth in automated workflow deployment including several new initiatives in video, voice and high-speed data. pureIntegration continues to work with the client’s operations team leaders to manage an influx of new initiative requests including automated application deployments and incident handling that are projected to save the organization millions of dollars each year.
