Determine which services and workloads are the most valuable in your data center
Which services in your data center are business critical, and which are not? Optimizing and standardizing services in your IT environment are key to creating a strategic data center.
IBM’s fit-for-purpose and business criticality assessments are designed to analyze your workloads and determine which services to keep and which to leave behind. By mapping workloads to their most valuable platform and segmenting them into service tiers—you can reduce cost, risk and management complexity. For the services that remain, creating standard policies help lay the groundwork for automation—and ultimately, technologies like cloud computing, social, mobile and analytics.
