i3 Solutions Group Delivers Lifecycle TCO Analysis to Data Center Operators

i3 and Romonet Partner to Bring First Lifecycle TCO Analysis to Enterprise Data Center Operators; Companies Set to Attend DCD Converged Conference July 12th - Booths 17 and 18

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2013) - i3 Solutions Group, the vendor neutral critical IT and Facilities consultancy, and Romonet, the leading provider of advanced data center predictive modeling software, are partnering to add Romonet's TCO (total cost of ownership) analysis capabilities to i3 Solutions Group's services. This will benefit i3 Solutions Group customers by providing the industry's only consultancy solution that brings together IT and Facilities with a common and accurate TCO modeling capability.

Romonet software is the industry's first and only true TCO modeling technology, offering data center operators a customizable view of operational and financial performance from portfolio to platform -- providing visibility into and control over data center costs, thereby reducing financial risk and increasing operational predictability. Romonet Portal 2.0 is the company's latest version of its SaaS-based data center performance and lifecycle management software suite. Historically data center owners have only been able to estimate IT costs, making it impossible to judge whether the data center is actually working as expected. With Portal 2.0, users can predict, analyze and continuously improve the performance of their data center portfolio and thereby minimize the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to a level of granularity and precision that is impossible with traditional tools.

"Understanding TCO is highly important in the financial services sector, but notoriously difficult to do. As a result, it is often not done at all," states Michael Garibaldi, Managing Partner of i3 Solutions Group. "Adding Romonet's technology to our services means that it now becomes easy to model all the financial aspects in addition to the operational ones. For the first time it allows full cost 'what-if' situation modeling and analysis."

Commenting on i3 Solutions Group's global reach in the Financial Services, Medical, Telecoms, Pharmaceutical, Media and Colocation industries, Zahl Limbuwala, CEO of Romonet, adds, "Partnering with i3Solutions Group enables us to address the growing demand from companies in those sectors -- especially financial services organizations."

i3 and Romonet will both attend the DatacenterDynamic's Converged conference on July 12th at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco. Both companies will exhibit at the event at Booth #17 (i3) and Booth #18 (Romonet). A premier full service B2B information provider, the DatacenterDynamics Converged conference features five halls offering up to date information from leading industry experts in the form of individual sessions addressing Power, DCIM, virtualization, Cloud Computing and the rise of the Software Defined Data Center.
