Mill Valley, CA, July 25, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Chouinard & Myhre, Inc (CMI) today released their latest “CMI Business Brief White Paper” aimed at making a strong financial and business case for the red-hot topic of storage virtualization.
CMI’s Storage Practice Executive, Jeff Guenthner wrote the White Paper, which also contains a personal perspective by CMI’s Chief Technology Officer, Kris Neely, and commentary from former LucasArts and Digital Domain Productions CFO Kevin Weston.
The result is a solid survey of the business and financial drives behind the virtualization of data storage assets in contemporary computing. Using real-world cases of storage virtualization at work, and detailed examples from tech bellwether IBM, the White Paper does a fine job of explaining this high-tech solution in terms any CEO or CFO will find accessible.
“CFO’s know that spending on data storage at their organizations has exploded in recent years,” said CMI’s CTO, Kris Neely. “So it is important to
make a clear-cut business case to CXX executives for storage virtualization -- which can literally drive double-digit savings in overall storage budgets.”
Neely went on, “By using examples from a variety of industries, as well as perspectives from key storage vendors such as IBM, this White Paper cuts through all the speech-making about how storage virtualization works and instead frames the discussion in business terms any executive can understand.”
Adding in a veteran CFO voice like Mr. Kevin Weston, former CFO at LucasArts and Digital Domain Productions helps ground this White Paper in reality – a failing of too many feeds-and-speeds oriented publications about this important and timely topic.
