Case Study: Total Economic Impact of Improving IT Administrative Efforts And Unifying Systems

Sep 05, 2011

In March 2011, Cisco Systems commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). The purpose of this study was to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Cisco UCS on their organizations.

Forrester interviewed five existing Cisco UCS customers, completed financial analysis on these customers and modeled a representative composite organization based on the interviews. The composite organization experienced the risk-adjusted ROI of 177% with a payback period of four months.
