Why is IT Capacity Management Important?
To say IT teams are busy is to say the least. And that’s why many find themselves reacting to problems—instead of proactively preventing them.
When there’s constant firefighting on top of day-to-day operations, there’s little time for IT to do anything else.
Yet, IT teams are called upon to do more than ever. The CIO’s role has shifted from overseeing IT infrastructure to supporting the business in new opportunities (and driving business value). Making sure you have enough capacity to accommodate increases in demand is critical.
At the same time, the business expects continuous delivery of existing services. Downtime is not an option.
To move the business forward, you need accurate capacity plans and real-time insight into performance. That’s why you need an IT capacity management solution.
What is Capacity Management?
Capacity Management 101
Capacity management is the practice that uses knowledge of systems and workloads (on-prem, cloud, and container) to avoid outages and manage cost. Watch the webinar to learn how to get started.
How Capacity Management Solutions Work
Typically, capacity management solutions include capacity planning and performance management capabilities.
Capacity planning tools predict demand and capacity. This can be done through modeling using what-if analysis on a specific growth scenario or trend analysis on historical data.
Performance management tools monitor, analyze, and report on performance within the IT infrastructure.
These components work together to give your organization total capacity management. And that, in turn, helps your IT department stay ahead of the game.
