I have been on the road(more than usual) lately, across 3 continents (and counting) to tell dozens of customer stories of quantifiable business value from autonomic computing that are now being realized.

What can a company do to improve efficiency and lower cost in IT, aside from pure cost-cutting? We are continuing to prove(over and over) with our Autonomic 'proof of concept' projects, across the industry, around the world, that companies can achieve a 30 to 50 percent time savings on IT tasks.

Getting on the path of enlightment ... to get more bang for the buck
