Tailored Fit Pricing: How to manage workload in a world without capping


Tailored Fit Pricing is a revolutionary new pricing model that eliminates the need for capping workloads and provides a complete alternative to the R4HA. For clients adopting this new model, there may be questions on how you manage your workloads both from a technical and business perspective: How am I tracking against my annual baseline? What is the change in MSU consumption month-to-month? Can I quantify the growth workloads or impact of business opportunity? In this session we discuss these questions and demonstrate how how can model these scenarios using IBM Z Decision Support for Capacity Planning. Using out-of-the-box reports, IT operations and management can easily manage performance consumption, link consumption back to business operations and provide the basis for planning workload optimization and future capacity needs
