IT Capacity Management

Capacity Management has recently worked its way up the list of concerns that senior IT managers have. 
Gartner says, "By 2016, the availability of capacity and performance management skills for horizontally scaled architectures will be a major constraint or risk to growth for 80 percent of major businesses.”

This renewed focus on Capacity Management has come about from the introduction of new technologies such as Virtualization and Cloud Computing. 

To achieve the promised cost objectives of Virtualization and Cloud infrastructure, Capacity Management needs to be in place and working properly. 

With traditional distributed architectures many companies have essentially “winged it” - this now comes with greater risks, to both doing business and achieving budgets, than it ever did before. If you're going to put all your eggs in one basket, it had better be big enough to hold them...

For all those of you who have ever wondered what the aim of IT Capacity Management is, What the Capacity Manager actually does and how Capacity Management fits with other IT functions I'm running a session to answer these questions and more.

The topics I’ll be covering include:
  • Goals of Capacity Management
  • How to implement Capacity Management
  • The Mechanics of Capacity Management
  • Where Capacity and Other Processes interact
Registration for this webinar 'IT Capacity Management 101' is now open, so sign up to come along
