Visio Diagramming On A Large Scale

Presented by

David Cuthbertson

About this talk

Problem – “We have to maintain 100s or 1000s of Visio diagrams to explain the complexity of our data centres, networks, applications, services and more. But… it’s difficult because it takes too much resource, it’s difficult to get consistency, we lack in-depth Visio skills and changes are constant.” Answer – Use Visio’s automation features and get an infrastructure database to create and maintain large amounts of Visio diagrams which are consistent and up to date. Result - Less engineering effort and skills, faster decision making, improved communications between project and operations teams. Plus, information is readily available for migration planning, risk assessments, impact analysis, change and capacity across a large estate. If you are currently manually maintaining Visio diagrams for racks, floor plans, cloud, data centres, servers, applications, ITIL service maps (and more). Then this webinar could reduce a lot of pain and cost. From a recent project, is 20 minutes (4% of a man day) more attractive than 68-man days to draw 270 rack layouts? Or 300 network diagrams refreshed every night?
