Virima Announces Strategic Executive-Level Consulting Services

CxO Advisory Services Give Organizations Seasoned, Expert Insight into their IT Operations Strategy

Atlanta, GA, November 12, 2010 --( Virima Technologies, Inc. today announced the addition of CxO Advisory Services to its portfolio of solutions for data center transformation. Founded in 2005, Virima Technologies is an IT operations and data center software and solutions company that helps organizations align their IT operations with business strategy. Virima’s CxO Advisory Services focus on the business-side of IT. The executive level advisors leverage their “been there, done that” knowledge to help organizations identify the best new processes, applications, technologies and organizational changes needed to best align IT initiatives and spend with business strategy and goals.

Offering Strategic executive-level services catered to your business, CxO Advisory Services brings technology thought leadership to C-level Executives and Boards of Directors. Virima’s unique offerings provide senior executives the opportunity to gain trusted technology advice to ensure they have full visibility, understanding and a plan to address the technological implications of the initiatives they are considering. Virima’s expert advisors have a vast amount of knowledge, experience and a large network to draw from in order to guide executives through their strategic and operational needs. The advisors are former CIO/CTOs that hail from Fortune 50 to Fortune 5000 organizations, serving a variety of industries across the globe.

With all the belt-tightening going on in this economy, the demand for companies to find ways to consolidate and cut spending is great. A majority of IT Executives have never had to deal with an undertaking of this magnitude and will greatly benefit from the knowledge and experience an expert advisor would bring to the table. And with the length of such projects being years long, in some cases, it is essential to avoid putting off such projects in order to realize the benefits and cost savings as soon as possible.

“Often, IT Executives are given mandates to cut costs and streamline their operations, or they find themselves in the middle of a merger without a clear understanding of how to assess IT,” said Salil Kulkarni, COO/CIO at Virima Technologies. “Our advisors have been there and have done this on a global scale, in some cases. They are able to look at your organization with deep knowledge and a fresh perspective to help you make the best choices to cut costs while optimizing your IT operations.”
