|Modeling the Data Center Lifecycle|
Unfortunately, most companies don’t systematically assess such risks inside their data centers, nor can best practices and rules of thumb adequately address them. To solve this problem, a few leading enterprises today predict, project and quantify risk and costs using computer models that accurately reproduce enterprise IT operations at any point in time, much like almost all companies do in other parts of their business.
In this session, ways to use computer modeling to analyze and quantify risks and costs of operational flexibility within data centers, with the goal of moving enterprise IT operations from being a cost center to becoming a cost-reducing profit center will be covered. The approach will be illustrated with a two-year case study from a global financial institution.
