When considering a major storage infrastructure change, companies need to consider the return on investment they're likely to see, taking into account infrastructure and management costs, among other factors. Forrester Consulting has conducted a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examines the potential ROI enterprises may realize by deploying Pure Storage's FlashArray storage solutions. Joe Branca, a consultant at Forrester, will join us for this webinar to discuss Forrester's methodology and findings from customer case studies along with Casey McKnew, from Hodges University, a current Pure FlashArray customer, who will provide insights based on several years of experience with FlashArray.
