EMA Webinar to Examine How to Optimize IT Costs and Value through Usage-Driven Insights
According to EMA research, optimizing IT financial performance requires usage insights applied with a willingness to consider both the challenges and the benefits in multiple dimensions and make investments accordingly
Boulder, Colo., October 23, 2018 - Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a webinar titled “Optimizing IT Costs and Value Through Usage-Driven Insights,” featuring Dennis Drogseth, vice president of research at EMA, and Will Degener, senior product manager at Scalable Software, Ltd.
Understanding what IT assets and services are needed most—and which are needed least or are no longer active—is critical to help IT save CapEx dollars and promote improved OpEx efficiencies. These advantages extend well beyond traditional asset management to support enhanced IT portfolio relevance, and more effective use of cloud-based resources. Understanding usage can also inform on end-user needs so that IT can better invest to support them.
During this webinar, Drogseth and Degener will discuss how organizations can benefit from usage-driven insights, as well as provide answers to the following questions:
- How do IT organizations align to optimize cost and value? Who are the players and what are the challenges?
- What does usage really mean? What data is most critical?
- What are the key technology areas where usage-driven insights come into play, from CMDBs and service catalogs, to endpoint and capacity optimization, to end-user-experience management and portfolio planning?
- What is the impact on audits, on cloud, on overall IT-to-business alignment?
- Beyond technology, what should one look for in terms of organization and process to optimize usage-driven insights? What benefits can you expect to achieve?
The webinar is Wednesday, October 31at 1:00 p.m. Eastern. Those who wish to attend can register at: http://info.enterprisemanagement.com/usage-driven-insights-webinar-pr
