The ongoing global economic recession has left no business, budget, or IT organization unscathed. Corporations, forced to do more with fewer resources, are demanding greater economies of scale. That sets expectations that IT organizations will remain lean yet deliver high-quality services and support. This requires IT organizations to develop more process-oriented, efficient, and effective mechanisms to manage and maintain their environments.
IT needs to deliver a high quality user experience in order to accelerate business success. But how many organisations closely monitor that experience, analyse it and have systems in place to deal with any problems?
In Autumn 2010, we commissioned an independent Study to find out. It involved interviewing over 400 business and IT leaders in different industry sectors across 14 countries to assess their position.
Over the last two decades, IT organizations have spent billions of dollars implementing fault management tools and processes to maximize network availability. While availability management is critical, infrastructure reliability has improved to the point at which 99.9 percent availability is commonplace. Given these improvements in infrastructure availability, companies are focusing more attention on performance management. By measuring how networked applications and services perform under normal circumstances, understanding how infrastructure and application changes impact performance, and isolating the sources of above-normal latency, IT organizations can ensure problems are resolved quickly, mitigate risk from planned and unplanned changes, and take measured steps to optimize application performance. In this paper, you will learn why this shift is taking place and how a new management model, what CA Technologies calls Performance First, can empower you to advance to the next level in managing your network for application performance.
Business applications today have become the primary interface between a company and its customers. And, there has simultaneously been tremendous innovation in the area of business intelligence, which can unlock a personalized experience for each an every user - and help support key corporate objectives to increase revenue, strengthen customer loyalty and establish and maintain a high-quality brand in the marketplace. For technology managers, then, this is an exciting time to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. But, the situation also exposes the intense risk we place on our IT applications because they now carry enormous organizational responsibility and significance.
As IT organizations are increasingly measured by their relationship to revenue, employee productivity, and business success, the more they need to visualize, analyze, and manage how the components in their IT environment impact business services. Dynamic change in the business climate, constant pressures to curb IT expenses, and implementation of new IT paradigms, including virtualization and cloud computing, pose significant challenges to IT-business alignment.
