We are wasting time and money with sprawling, disparate IT infrastructure. How can we standardize our IT environment to adapt quickly to change?


A standard operating environment (SOE) is the key to solving IT environment sprawl that leads to out-of-control costs and difficulties in issue resolution. By reducing complexity, your IT teams can focus more on moving the business forward instead of struggling to keep the lights on.

With the flexibility, security, and reliability of Red Hat®—spanning infrastructure, management, virtualization, and storage—you can consolidate your environment to ease the burden of manual processes across disparate systems. You can also gain greater visibility across your IT to further simplify and secure your infrastructure.
