As organizations of all shapes and sizes continue in their journey to the cloud and digital transformation, we should take a step back and really evaluate the “cloud” and prioritize the instances in which the cloud can be utilized to its maximum capability from a cost, functionally, and operational standpoint. With over 90% of organizations having some cloud presence, we are seeing instances of as many as 40-50% overspending in the cloud. Whether those excess dollars are coming from ingress/egress fees, over provisioning, etc., HPE GreenLake is the ideal anecdote to end to the pain of overspending.

The service is designed to help companies reduce the upfront costs and complexity associated with purchasing and managing on-premises IT infrastructure and software.
One of the key benefits of HPE GreenLake is that it provides companies with a flexible, scalable, and on-demand IT infrastructure that can be customized to meet their specific needs.

How CPP Associates is Helping Organizations on their Cloud Journey
Here at CPP Associates, we’ve taken many customers through an objective, step-by-step comparison of all the options available to them — including HPE GreenLake — in their digital transformation journey through our Infrastructure Anywhere Assessment process. And after an exhaustive analysis of more than 100 factors, including cost, regulatory compliance, security, scale, etc., the majority have ended up being convinced that GreenLake was the best choice for them. We put together a new “CPP Perspective” document which outlines three companies — all different sizes and different business goals and objectives — and how they came to the decision to implement HPE GreenLake. Our hope is to provide you with insight into the many cloud optimization strategies available with GreenLake and the business benefits it can provide.
