Technology Business Management: Uncovering the Hidden Economics of the Data Center
July 17, 2012 @ 9:30 a.m.-10:15 a.m. PT
Marriott Marquis, San Francisco, CA
Enterprise organizations typically spend a majority of their IT budgets on building, maintaining and managing data centers. However, infrastructure and operations professionals often 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 becoming an even larger concern as more business users procure IT services via the cloud, without proper approvals from their IT department. Until IT can definitively answer 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. This session will discuss how IT and data center executives can uncover the hidden economics of the data center, and leverage Technology Business Management to alleviate these challenges.
The DatacenterDynamics Converged event brings together the people, processes, and technology necessary to execute a world class data center strategy. For more information, or to register for the event, visit http://www.datacenterdynamics.com/conferences/2012/san-francisco-2012.
