Typical findings, benefits and usage areas

ITBI gives companies the ability to exchange complexity for transparency, ensuring efficient and effective IT management.

These are typical findings and advantages from using ITBI:

Reduce time spent on reporting, capacity- and performance management. Follow up on the outsourcer and validate invoices

Mid-range (Windows, UNIX, Linux)

  • Adjust the number and size of servers running with right-sizing. Cost savings in software licenses, utility cost and manpower
  • Hardware cost-avoidance by re-use of “cold” servers
  • 5% of servers not in use and 30% storage over-allocation
  • Avoid over-shopping during hardware refresh or when deploying new applications / projects
  • Trend-analysis identifies servers before they run “hot” and leads to increased uptime
  • Identify and track most capacity demanding (expensive) applications, jobs, transactions and users to initiate dialog for implementing change / behavior adjustments

Mainframe (IBM z/OS)

  • Peak, Production and Batch analysis and optimization
  • WLC optimization and SLO for cutting software costs
  • Synchronize business and workload priorities (WLM)
  • Exploit utility processors, mobile workload and software and hardware features
