Capacity planning is hard. It’s even harder if you want to do it right. One of the industry’s dirty little secrets is that in today’s computing climate, there are few organizations for whom the benefits of formal and rigorous capacity planning outweigh the costs. Having said that, there are a lot of easy and low-cost to get started with capacity planning that can provide significant value to any organization. Attendees of this talk will have a clear path forward to lead capacity planning efforts.
