There’s a new paradigm in IT—one in which it often seems impossible to predict future demand and guard against performance risks. You have mountains of data, scalable cloud infrastructure, and a complex web of IT environments. This growth in complexity is matched only by skyrocketing consumer demand for and reliance on online services.
Bottom line: outages are more dangerous to a company’s reputation and revenue than ever before.
The flexible nature of cloud computing may have made it easier to avoid outages by adjusting server space in response to increased demand. But it’s also made it far easier for companies to overprovision IT resources, causing them to spend thousands more on services than they actually need to.
Service failures and overprovisioning represent serious risk to your company’s bottom line. Therefore, they must be protected against with tools and strategies designed to account for the growing complexities of modern IT.

An unplanned outage will cost your company an average of $500,000 for every hour that services are down.
Meanwhile, the total annual cost of overprovisioning for IT services each year is $1.5 billion, and the average company leaves around 50% of its paid-for cloud server space unused.
These costs aren’t small enough to justify anything but the most stringent protection against IT risk, protection that will require advanced capacity planning software.
Capacity planning requires that you collect massive amounts of performance data from every server in your system, quickly analyze that data to determine the risk levels of those servers, then use predictive analytics to determine how long before detected risks will likely occur.
It’s time to take care of these tasks without drawing valuable man hours away from value-creating IT tasks. That’s why your IT department needs software to automate the collection, structuring, and analysis of these volumes of data automatically.
Mitigate the threats to service quality created by this complex new world with tools that let you monitor relative risk for each of your services on a simple scale of 0 to 100. Know exactly which services will be at risk and when, then drill down into granular details to quickly resolve the impending problem.
