IT sprawl opens your organization to security risks, potential compliance challenges, and siloed processes. Unifying your stack reduces those risks, improves efficiency, and streamlines your infrastructure. And it only takes three steps.

1. Identify

Assess your entire IT environment and determine the core platform(s) that will deliver the services and support you need in the most efficient way.

2. Integrate

Incorporate your core throughout your infrastructure, focusing on areas where there are unmet needs or underperforming solutions. Listen to your users: they’ll tell you where those problems exist.

3. Consolidate

Get rid of what’s not needed. You’ll gain deeper vendor relationships with the suppliers of your core stack and learn more about what’s possible from those systems after you reduce sprawl.

Get Started by Reducing Sprawl

IT sprawl maximizes your resources to make your infrastructure more efficient and cost-effective. Dive deeper into each step of the process in the ebook, How to Reduce IT Sprawl.
