EfficientIP, a leading provider of network services, today revealed the findings of an in-depth return on investment (ROI) report of DNS-DHCP-IPAM (DDI) customers who have switched providers. The research was carried out on 50 customers, totaling more than 25 million IP addresses, across Europe and North America. The findings highlight how organizations can reduce the time and cost of managing, configuring and integrating large-scale enterprise networks, simply by changing their DDI provider.

The document ‘Tailored For Business’ provides deep insights into the cost and time benefits associated with implementing DDI solutions. It gives real-life examples of payback periods and boosts in productivity. Sectors covered include Higher Education, Energy, Finance, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Public Sector, Services, Telco/ISPs, and Transportation. Fueled by the demands of the digital age, network services are a founding pillar for key IT transformation initiatives such as hybrid cloud, IoT and mobility. Well-configured network services give businesses the agility, performance, and security needed to compete. The research highlights how an integrated DDI solution achieves this by driving business efficiency through greater network availability, security, and performance.

Key findings include:

  • Integration and automation of DNS/DHCP and IPAM produces ROI of up to 193%.
  • Time saved and single-task optimization increases productivity by 400% on average.
  • Delegation results in ROI of up to 150%.
  • Integrated DDI, device mobility tracking and historical changes help save 90% of the time needed for error identification or conflict resolution.
  • Reporting sees huge improvements – up to 6x faster for each activity.

David Williamson, CEO at EfficientIP, comments on the findings: “This research we carried out on our customers clearly shows those who have switched from BlueCat and Infoblox saved a lot of money and resources. These savings will likely increase as businesses, data and scalability demands grow. It’s not just about costs though- strengthening core network services increases agility for the IT department and so for the entire organization. The reduced outages and rapid return on investment revealed in the report showcase the business case for switching to an integrated DDI solution like ours.”
