The need to accurately forecast business strategy and projected growth is a primary focus of many Information Technology (IT) managers today.
They are asking:
To this end, Baer Consulting, Inc. (BCI) provides Mainframe Capacity Planning and Performance Reporting for z/OS systems. Mainframe Capacity Planning is the estimation of future computing resources, including system and network resources that are required to meet business needs. This plan is achieved through the use of various software tools to review historical data. Using this data and any known business objectives, we work with the client to develop a vendor-independent strategy.
z/OS has introduced many new facilities that need consideration when producing mainframe capacity planning and mainframe performance evaluation reports. Facilities such as sysplex, parallel sysplex, UNIX System Services (formerly OpenMVS), APPC/MVS, TCP/IP, and the z/OS Workload Manager are changing the focus of traditional mainframe performance and capacity management.
We at BCI provide a step-by-step approach to create a road map for the future. This makes it possible for our clients to predict, plan, improve productivity, and gain a competitive edge through better managing of their overall IT resources.
