Improved IT Operations Management for IT Managers and Capacity Planners


Presentation

IT and business managers are increasingly concerned with the rising costs associated with their highly complex and ever-growing mainframe and distributed systems datacenters. They are also concerned about controlling outages, and mitigating the lack of transparency the various business units have into capacity and cost drivers - including their outsourced environments.

New tools with modernized reporting techniques allow you to merge basic business data with the abundance of IT data already being collected, to improve the transparency into the relationship between IT costs and business activities. This new-found clarity of IT resource usage and cost, down to the business unit level, provides a common language between IT managers and business managers. It also allows IT spending decisions to become fact-based – removing the guess-work and uncertainty common in today’s over-burdened IT organizations.

Join us as we discuss:
• Understanding cost drivers for both mainframe and distributed components of your data center
• Using cloud-based analytics to fix IT problems before they affect the business
• Improving oversight of outsourcers and billing
