Five Ways to View Your IT Assets as an Investor

A few weeks back, I had the privilege of being published in the Industry Perspectives section of Data Center Knowledge. This was my first byline in a publication that is very influential in the market we serve.

Anyone involved in the purchase of IT equipment knows that hardware is expensive. Whether we’re talking about traditional data center gear like physical servers and storage or on-premise networking gear, finding ways to save money is always a topic people can get behind.

The simple act of changing your perspective could make all the difference. As a business, you are a consumer of technology equipment. But you are also an investor in that equipment. What if you managed your data center equipment the same way an investor manages a stock portfolio?

My article outlines 5 ways you can look at your IT assets as an investor, not a consumer. From tracking your portfolio’s value to reinvesting dividends, it’s a quick read that may make you think twice about how you manage this big-ticket expense on your balance sheet.

Check it out and let me know what you think.
