Technology Business Management: Uncovering the Hidden Economics of the Data Center
When: 9:30 a.m. – 10:15 a.m., May 9, 2012
Where: Hilton Hotel, Bellevue, WA
Description: Data centers typically represent the single largest cost center for enterprise organizations. And all too often, Infrastructure & Operations professionals cannot answer the most basic questions about their cost drivers, such as the unit rate for different server classes, which business units are consuming the most infrastructure resources, or how to fairly allocate costs back to the business. This is especially problematic as more and more business users are going around IT to the Cloud to procure IT services. Until IT can answer with a high degree of confidence how much it costs to deliver services to the business, this problem will only grow more acute. Technology Business Management (TBM) has emerged as a powerful new discipline that enables IT decision makers to understand and communicate their costs and become more fully aligned with their business partners. In this session, Mark Jancola of Apptio will outline the core tenets of TBM and present a variety of use cases that showcase how TBM is being leveraged to make smarter, fact-based decisions about their data center initiatives.
The DatacenterDynamics Converged event brings together the people, processes, and technology necessary to execute a world class data center strategy.
