Transforming Storage Operations from Entrepreneurial to Predictive

Transforming Storage Operations from Entrepreneurial to Predictive

Cover
Today's IT professionals are under pressure to meet service level commitments while reducing costs, increasing operational efficiencies, mitigating risk and answering to a wide range of other corporate imperatives.

Successfully addressing these issues requires a clear understanding of the processes, procedures and people that are involved - how long it takes, how much it costs to get something done and the ability to predict and mange the day-to-day impact of any initiative on the organization. Unfortunately, many organizations still operate in the reactive catch-up mode or "entrepreneurial" mode. The consequences of continuing in this mode will only result in increasing the risk and costs of meeting critical imperatives.

This white paper explores a new approach to IT - one that moves from a reactive to a more predictive model. It defines the characteristics and benefits of this model - contrasting it with current "entrepreneurial" approaches. And it provides valuable guidance and specific tips for organizations trying to transform their IT operations.
