Key performance indicators (KPI) enable organizations to manage their factories, distribution centers, supply chain and other aspects of your business operations in a cost effective manner. This means having metrics that matter covering not only utilization of assets, material consumption and production output. In addition, this means having insight into defects, re-work, lost time due to delays or lost opportunity. IT Data Centers are Information Factories that also need to be monitored for different purposes as well as from various facets and context to have timely insight for effective decision-making. Monitoring ranges from physical facilities or the habitats for technology to the technology and tools that live there (servers, storage, networking, hardware, software) to deliver information services. This webinar looks at how to avoid flying blind gaining situational awareness and timely data center insight monitoring a key enabler for data center infrastructure management (DCIM). Topics that we will discuss include metrics that matter, service level objectives (SLOs), DCIM, PMDB, performance, availability (reliability, accessibility, and durability), capacity, energy and economics (PACEE), cloud, virtualization, sustainability among others.
•Everything is not the same in the data center or information factory
•Metrics that matter from physical to virtual, cloud and where to get them
•Facilities, energy and power, server, storage, networking and software
•Do you know what your costs to deliver a given level of service are?
•Sustainability for productivity and economics without the Green-washing
