IT Capacity Management

IT function of any major organization has to answer a slew of questions from management pertaining to IT capacity and performance risk. Since these questions are a part of well established management process, the IT will be well served to be equipped to answer these questions in a repeated and automated way.

This is further compounded by the fact that today’s organizations manage immense amount of data through physical servers and virtual machines, and this data is sourced from servers via various tools like BMC, HP OpenView, CMDB and its service desk. And since data from one tool is very difficult to be used by another tool, correlation of data for capacity and performance risk analysis is very challenging indeed.
