Infotech Lead America: Three data driven organizations, NPD Group, PCL Constructors and VOO have benefited by replacing their legacy data centers with HP Networking data center solutions.
The NPD Group, a market research firm, PCL Constructors, a commercial and industrial contractors and cable internet company VOO needed help with simplifying big data and deriving actionable business value from it. These companies had bandwidth limitations that hindered innovation and had begun affecting their future growth potential.
HP helped these organizations make informed IT decisions, improve operational efficiencies and enhance business continuity by providing solutions that offered better performance and scalability.
The HP FlexNetwork architecture delivers an open and standards-based solution with scalability on three dimensions: security, agility, and consistency.
HP’s FlexNetwork architecture was launched in 2011 with an aim to tie together a business’s networks in the data center, campus and branch offices, drive down costs and create a consistent architecture. It was designed to be an alternative to Cisco’s offerings.
The NPD Group relies heavily on big data to help clients make informed business decisions, track markets, understand their end consumers and drive profitable growth. As client demand for real-time, complex analysis increased, NPD Group realized the need for greater networking bandwidth.
NPD Group replaced its entire data center network infrastructure with solutions from HP to address these issues. The process took only six months from design to full implementation.
