WEBINAR End the Capacity Allocation Tug o‘ War: Energize Your Power Platform Performance Monitoring Made Easy WHO SHOULD ATTEND CIOs, Power Systems managers, IBM application managers, Virtualization managers, Performance analysts, Capacity planners WHEN Thursday, December 13 | 9 PT / 11 CT / Noon ET AGENDA Tired of the capacity allocation tug o‘ war? As the IBM Power guru, your work often straddles two competing business goals -- sizing LPARs to maximize application performance and sizing LPARs to maximize physical resource utilization. Over-provisioning resources for high performance makes your business managers happy while upsetting your CFO. Over-committing resources to maximize resource utilization pleases your CFO but upsets your business managers. The key to right-sizing your IBM environment is using performance and utilization data to drive your capacity allocation decisions. But who has time? It could take weeks to consolidate all the data from your various monitoring products. Not to mention, your current monitoring tools don’t give you full visibility into the actual resource headroom or how WPARs use LPAR resources. All the while, your data is aging making your capacity analysis inaccurate before you even begin. If this scenario sounds all too familiar, join us for this webinar. We will help you switch from a fire-fighting mode to a capacity optimization mode. No more getting caught in the middle, put the power of decision making on your side.
