Specifically, they erroneously believe that their best option is to execute the applications either on standalone or virtualized on x86 servers.

How strong is your renewal program? Are you able to predict and analyze your performance correctly? ServiceSource® believes that the real yardstick of renewal performance lies in a comprehensive set of key performance indicators (KPIs) that can tell a much broader story. Over the last 13 years and over 145 engagements, we’ve identified these twelve critical factors for successfully measuring and growing your renewal revenue. This whitepaper provides a detailed overview of those KPIs.
The principle “what gets measured gets managed” dictates that by simply examining an activity, you can get a handle on it and find ways to improve it. However, not all metrics are created equal—meaning not all things that can be measured will give you the ability to proactively take action in a timely manner. Case in point: If you measure the effectiveness of your customer success and recurring revenue growth programs based only on retention, churn, renewal or attrition rates, then you have a problem. These are very important metrics, and they are definitely key to your business. The problem is that these metrics can only tell you if you have a problem, which you often discover only after it is too late to affect real change.
