To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.

Differentiation is a business decision made at the highest levels about the company’s positioning and values–how the company adds value to a customer relationship. There are many ways a company can make those decisions, and many different approaches to doing so. The most successful companies adopt a positioning that offers sustainable competitive advantage–a way of adding value that competitors cannot easily duplicate.

One of the most important questions a company can ask itself is “what is our differentiation?” The reason is simple: it’s how you define yourself in the minds of your customers and beat the competition. Beyond that, it’s what guides business strategy as you face decisions and choices on a daily basis. A company that knows who it is and how it adds value for customers and prospects has a solid foundation for making those decisions. One that has an unclear position or, worse yet, constantly shifts position, has a difficult path in a challenging market. That’s why branding discussions need to go well beyond graphics and touch on the values and identity that are at the core of any successful company.

A key difference between consumer and business-to-business branding is the influence of selling channels, including sales reps, dealers and distributors. While many consumer products are also sold through a channel, the marketer generally reaches past the channel with branding messages, relegating the channel to the status of a local point of sale. By contrast, in many B-to-B markets, the local dealer or distributor really “owns” the end customer and can control access and communications to and from the customer.
