Ask what he or she means by "simplify". There's a goal in mind here,
and "simplify" likely doesn't describe it. Is it to spend less on
security infrastructure? Reduce the amount of time spent on security
processes and procedures? Lower user training costs?

Likely there's some sort of motive that can be expressed in dollars
and cents...that's what you should be trying to define.

If you were told by a VP to simplify security for your organization, what you think would be a starting point?  It's seems 
vague.  We run Windows servers/desktops that are built on the same images.  We use Cisco switches/routers/etc.  I'm not 
really sure where to start.
