The conundrum: Balancing risk vs. cost

  • As complexity and volume grow, visibility across the entire ecosystem shrinks. Companies are getting by with a mixed bag of on-premises and cloud vendor-specific capacity management tools that don’t communicate with one another. Because they lack visibility, IT organizations and lines of business face a lose-lose choice: They can spend more and over-provision resources to be sure they’re available when demand requires them. Or they can make an uninformed guess at what resources they’ll need, which can save money but risks frustrating users with poor performance. With on-premises systems, over-provisioning can mean making big bets on capital expenses by purchasing infrastructure such as servers and storage that are underutilized, under-provisioned, or not used at all. In the cloud, operational costs rise with the consumption — and waste — of computing and storage resources.
