Virtual Instruments to discuss answers to IT performance problems at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015

By Sam Curcuruto, Product Marketing Manager

Here at Virtual Instruments, we’ve learned a lot about IT performance and the challenges departments face by working with some of the largest enterprises in the world. Next week, we’ll be presenting and exhibiting some of what we’ve helped these organizations achieve at the Gartner Symposium and ITxpo 2015 in Orlando. Aravind Sivanesan, our senior director of alliances technology strategy and enablement, will present an industry session that shows how IPM can help transform enterprise IT organizations. His presentation will highlight the ways healthcare IT teams have used IPM to overcome challenges involved with a growing IT infrastructure, pointing to critical examples and use cases from Kaiser and MetLife that demonstrate how these companies have overcome infrastructure complexity to promote cost optimization and optimized performance.

Federal mandates calling for shifts to electronic healthcare records (EHRs) and other new technologies have forced healthcare providers and others to act quickly. Those quick system changes have led to questionable stability. Like any other company, hospitals face devastating consequences when they experience IT issues. However, they don’t just lose money. When doctors can’t load medical records or access other critical patient information, the lives of their patients are at risk.

Overprovisioning has long been the way to guarantee performance in enterprise IT, but, left unchecked, spending can be wasteful and yield no tangible ROI. Even though overprovisioning presents an excessive expense, it remains an all-too-common option for companies that need a quick resolution when latency becomes an issue. Aravind will explain how infrastructure performance management (IPM) helps organizations benchmark performance and gain better insight into their infrastructures to eliminate the need for overprovisioning, and needless upgrades and investments across the board.

Join him for his presentation, “How Healthcare Leaders like Kaiser and MetLife Renovate their IT Core with IPM,” on Sunday afternoon at 2:45 p.m. in the Osprey Ballroom.

Virtual Instruments has worked with organizations across industries to make IT problem solving less about reacting and more focused on increasing efficiency and optimized performance. Whether in a hospital, a retail chain or a government agency, a better understanding of infrastructure performance can save IT organizations and those they serve time and money.

We’re happy to talk to anyone in any industry about how VirtualWisdom can help your organization, no matter the performance situation you find yourself in. Be sure to stop by and visit our team at booth 435. You can also learn more about what we’ll be doing at the Gartner Symposium and ITxpo here.
