Discover how to conquer the pain of your data center supply chain
Nowadays, it’s not unusual for hardware manufacturers to delay the time-to-market (TTM) of their products by upwards of 14-16 months. These extended delays impact your business’ ability to deploy new technology, causing:
- Inaccurate capacity planning
- Underutilized infrastructure assets
- Missed sales opportunities
- Customer satisfaction challenges
- Limited scalability
With large scale, often global infrastructure that is continuously growing and changing, organizations like yours can’t afford to wait for supply chains to fix themselves. Read SHI’s latest ebook to discover how Integrated Data Center Services (IDCS) can mitigate your supply chain pains and deploy your largest projects in a way that is predictable, repeatable, scalable, and high quality.
