Capacity forecasting is an established area of IT resource planning consisting of well-developed analytics tools and proven methodologies, but is it possible that the current methods of planning are no longer sufficient? For many enterprises IT decision-makers, the fast-changing, explosive-growth new demands of business and customers in these early days of global digital transformation seem impossible to plan for. The metrics used to make critical infrastructure decisions need to adapt in order to derive the most value for large-scale enterprise IT organizations – but how? Do the people who are best positioned to make those decisions really have a seat at the table - with the right tools, and with the right advisory?
This Big Discussion will explore whether the dynamics of flexibility and agility in the age of a digital-first DevOps framework sit at the same level of strategic design criteria and requirements such as cost, technology feature sets, and operational efficiency – all while trying to avoid proprietary technology lock-in. In a world where new application cycles and revenue opportunities are measured in hours and days, is the decision-making process now very different? This discussion will debate the value of flexibility and agility in infrastructure planning, the common challenges faced with implementations, and proven best practice advice on delivering hybrid deployments ready for both today and the future.
