C A S E S T U DY CASE STUDY 0 1 COMPANY NAME: PNC Financial Services LOCATION: Pittsburgh, PA INDUSTRY: Financial PRODUCTS AND SERVICES: Deposit, lending, cash management and investment services REVENUE: $16 billion EMPLOYEES: 54,000 WEBSITE: BUSINESS CHALLENGE • Disparate, manual, and inefficient processes that increased time to deliver and business risk • Decision making and planning efforts that were reactive, rather than proactive, and based on plate data and inaccurate inventory records • Inability to accurately forecast power, cooling, and space for moves, consolidations, and other changes • Inability to share data across the organization to manage and support infrastructure capabilities, utilization, and allocations WHY NLYTE SOFTWARE • Independent, vendor-neutral, open solution • Clean, user-friendly application interface for rapid adoption • Ability to handle both virtual and high-density data center environments • Flexibility to use Microsoft Reporting Services • Workflow flexibility • Easy alignment with – and support for – ITIL processes BENEFITS • Ability to accurately model data centers moves, build- outs, and other changes without reliance on costly outside consultants • Accurate understanding of assets and performance via access to real-time data on space, power, and cooling • Rapid return on investment (savings paid for the initial install in three months and the three-year software license in just a year) • Identification and decommissioning of nearly 500 orphaned servers, which freed up half a megawatt of power and extended data center life from five years to 15 years • Savings that enabled the CIO to reallocate IT budget from 70% operations/30% for development to 40% operations/60% development • Faster, more efficient asset lifecycle management that lowers business risk With Nlyte, we not only freed up half a megawatt of power, but also extended the life of our data center from five years to 15 years. As a result, our CIO has been able to reallocate budgets from about 70% for operations and 30% for development to 40% for operations and 60% for building tools for the business." Vice President and General Manager of Data Center Operations at PNC "
