There is no easy way to establish the “going rate” for comparable services, because all services are differentiated by other forces, such as individual processes, brand equity, and features.

Consider instead, a model where your pricing is based on how much it truly costs you to perform one hour of service. In this eBook, we show you how to calculate your full hourly overhead burden–so you can set the right price for your IT services.

Today’s enterprises support an assortment of end-user devices,
including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, and, of course, smartphones. Not only do employees use a variety of form factors, but they run a variety of platforms on those devices, including:
• Apple iOS and Apple macOS
• Google Android
• Microsoft Windows
Digital technology is so intrinsic to our personal lives that we barely think
about the fitness trackers and smartphones that are as much a part of
us as the clothing we wear. For organizations, the shift to digital is more
disruptive and the stakes far higher. Digital transformation has been high
on the executive agenda for a few years and, for many, harnessing data
has become a significant force for value and revenue creation.
Agility has emerged as an organizational superpower as businesses
grapple with change and uncertainty in their own customer bases and in
the global political and economic landscape. IT has been thrust into the
spotlight as the unwitting hero of the story – tasked with delivering on
the digital vision, implementing all manner of applications and building
firm infrastructure foundations to support the latest digital initiatives.
In an increasingly on-demand world, it is this final point that often gets
overlooked in the rush for the next shiny new technologies. E

There are a growing number of examples of how software and the cloud have the power to be disruptive technologies. Amazon and Alibaba in retail, Square and Apple Pay in finance, Uber and Lyft in transportation, and Netflix and Spotify in media are all examples of recent software-based services that have revolutionized how we do business. This potential for disruption across all vertical industries is driving a requirement for enterprises and their IT organizations to be more agile and responsive to changing business environments.
Today more than ever, business wins depend on teamwork. And the teams that make things happen are bigger, more diverse, and more distributed than ever. People are working at home, in coffee shops, and on the road. They span multiple time zones. They use every imaginable device, relying heavily on their mobile phones. They grapple with deadlines because their tools don’t connect. With so much to manage, people are challenged to be truly present and focused in the moment. To make the most of each opportunity and maintain business momentum, they need tools that allow them to work intuitively. Effortlessly. That fade into the background, leaving them free to keep focused, stay engaged, get inspired, innovate. That allow them to connect as if they were in person, when they’re not.

All companies, small and large, grapple with infrastructure growth and IT modernization. For many companies, datacenter infrastructure has become an essential part of a hybrid cloud environment that allows users to consume internal and external resources seamlessly. This, in turn, is helping modernize today's datacenters and drive new levels of agility, productivity, and scale.
A common attribute of modern datacenter infrastructure is solutions that provide all compute and data services as a single system that can be managed holistically at a rack scale. IDC refers to such solutions as converged infrastructure.
