At VMworld in San Francisco, I was sitting in a benchmarking session given by VMware and heard a lot about industry standards and peer rankings. It became very apparent that there is a need for a standard KPI to base any benchmarking activity. A perfect fit to address this need for standardization is TeamQuest Performance Indicator or TPI.
TeamQuest Performance Indicator (TPI) is the best KPI. TPI is a single number that represents the overall performance health of your systems and applications. TPI uses a scale of 0 to 100; 0 = can't get any worse and 100 = can't get any better. It is calculated automatically and available in real-time. TPI uses sophisticated algorithms behind-the-scenes that account for non-linear behavior of performance.
At our booth at VMworld, we fielded many questions about what TPI is and how it can help organizations standardize their performance health reporting. It made for quite enlightening conversations for those struggle to determine just how healthy their services are.
