These days, Companies need to be able to see everything from all angles. It’s no longer enough for a Capacity Manager in each silo to try to avoid their ‘own’ crises, and ignore everyone else’s.
Senior management is fed up with too many hours spent in war rooms watching everyone blame everyone else. In response to this, Metrons effort is now concentrated on 360° Capacity Management.
360° Capacity Management is capacity management ‘in the round, ’ capacity issues capable of being seen from all perspectives and forecasts made by incorporating all perspectives.
Metron is partnered with like-minded quality software providers such as Correlsense, Intellimagic, IIM and AES to offer a range of solutions that bring the differing perspectives of capacity issues together.
Metron understand that Companies have their own installed performance and capacity solutions, or want to be free to choose point solutions that they feel best meet their individual needs.
For these Companies Metron athene®’s Integrator sits at the heart of 360° Capacity Management.
Bringing together any data from any source, even business data unique to an organization, into a single athene® CMIS (Capacity Management Information Store).
All data, irrespective of its source, is correlated to enhance understanding and identify relationships, and is reported on with a common look and feel using athene®’s extensive automated reporting capability.
Andrew Smith CSMO at Metron commented “Given that no one data set from the resources that make up today’s data center contains everything that a capacity manager needs in order to make informed decisions, a different approach is required. We believe that the all round approach of 360° Capacity Management pays off for Companies. Less time in the war room, less money spent fighting crises, less time and effort needed to provide a common picture and move forward.”
Capacity Management today has the same goals and desired outcomes as it did decades ago – providing adequate capacity at controlled costs, both now and in the future. The methods Companies use today and the tools required to meet these goals have changed due to the changing nature of IT services and the complexity of the IT infrastructure needed to run those services.
Looking at performance and capacity challenges from all possible angles, 360°Capacity Management, gives Companies the ability to properly meet service level agreements and meet capacity management’s mission both now and in the future.
