Gartner positions Capacity Planning and Management technologies in the “Peak of Inflated Expectations”: this means that, after an initial stage where only highly innovation driven players took advantage of these technologies, more and more companies share the same desire and the hope that, in leveraging these technologies and processes, the goal of running IT operations like a business can be achieved.
Gartner advice their clients to invest in Capacity Management and Capacity Planning tools for:
- Lower the IT Infrastructure costs
- Mitigate Risk linked to poor performance and lack of capacity
- Make fact based decisions and plan for future scenarios
