The webinar will examine how the current challenging economy has changed the rules for IT.  As economic pressures increase, companies must focus on controlling expenses without sacrificing competitiveness.  To help IT reduce costs while improving service and managing risk at the same time, businesses need to learn how to squeeze the hidden cost, or "stealth waste”, out of business processes and improve overall IT effectiveness. 

In this joint webcast IBM and Nastel will provide timely insights into these important issues, and how some IT shops are successfully addressing them today. They will also cover the IBM Industry Framework and Nastel AutoPilot solutions, which together provide a comprehensive approach to ensuring enterprise effectiveness and optimal business transaction performance.

"We are proud to partner with IBM and collaborate with them to deliver a webinar program that will offer practical advice on how companies can go beyond merely coping with the new economic reality to streamline business processes, improve quality of service and retain a competitive edge," said Gad Tobaly, Nastel’s Chief Operating Officer.
