IT organizations often struggle with justifying infrastructure investments. Business stakeholders believe that IT organizations cannot clearly link incremental infrastructure costs to the business value they create, and as a result IT budgets are unnecessarily capped to control costs. A proper capacity management strategy can reverse this trend by framing IT investments in terms of the services they support, and consistently maximizing the efficiency of this infrastructure by optimizing workload distribution.
As capacity planning and management practices evolve, it is important for service owners and performance analysts to quickly identify unhealthy systems and systems at-risk of becoming unhealthy. However, it does no good to have perfect health and no risk if you’re throwing away money on underutilized systems.
In this webinar...
• Learn how to ensure that your systems aren’t just healthy, but cost-efficient as well.
• Always know what systems are over-utilized (warning – outage possible) and underutilized (warning - waste happening) to fully optimize the delivery of your services
• Put IT services in a clear business context will enable IT leaders to spend less time putting out routine fires and more time creating additional value, giving their staff the flexibility they need to fully apply their expertise.
With fact-driven decision making, IT managers can create more consistent and efficient services, justify the budget they need, and better collaborate with executives to align IT and business goals.
