Tips and Tricks for Allocating MIPS Costs – Managing the Complexity


Presentation

Most companies struggle to create business value from the huge amounts of capacity and performance data available to them. Questions like ‘who is using how much and at what cost?’ result in ambiguous answers because of the complexity involved in mapping technical measurements such as SMF to business costs, applications and organizations. Using business intelligence methods on top of capacity data (‘IT Business Intelligence’) can help manage the complexity, but data and tools can only take us so far. Successful cost allocation, whether it is chargeback or show back, requires careful planning and impacts organization, processes and mind-set.
