  • Why Is Operational Data Important for IT?
    Why Is Operational Data Important for IT? Dan Ortega - Vice President of Marketing Recorded: Apr 28 2017 4 mins
    Each day, with every customer transaction, employee task and business process, companies generate vast amounts of operational data that provides leaders and managers with insight into what is working well and what requires attention. Operational data is particularly important to those responsible for stewarding the information and technology assets of their organization.
    In this context, operational data is particularly important to IT, which is why it is so critical to understand the three different types of operational data on which IT leaders rely.
    Business operational data is all about the business processes and user experiences, which IT enables with the technology and services it provides. The reason organizations invest in technology is to improve the productivity and effectiveness of business operations. Process and user-related data evaluated over time provides a contextual picture into how effectively the technology is achieving that goal.
    IT operational data is concerned with the content of “what” technology components are operating and being used. IT operational data is important as a part of the IT planning process to understand capacity utilization and determine where scalability constraints exist, as well as to understand the cost of services provided to users and to assess security and risk considerations of the business-technology ecosystem. Within IT service management processes, operational data is critical to ensure performance and availability Service Levels Agreements (SLAs) are honored, and to drive technology cost reduction through infrastructure optimization.
    Operational data provides IT with the critical picture it needs to understand and optimize the role it plays in the context of the company.
