Re-Branding the Blog

I've decided to rebrand this blog; which used to be titled "Cloud Capacity", which in all honesty was probably a bit vague for its purpose. Considering the content, I've decided to focus more on the area of 'rebranding' capacity management and it's role in IT supply chain.

The simple reality is that the IT trends have been moving towards a tiered model of operation for some time now, and capacity management has to find its role as "end to end" management of apps, infrastructure and datacenters has dwindled with a variety of IT sourcing alternatives gain market share.

Also we must recognise that many of these changes have been borne out of business drivers to create an agile, cost-effective delivery mechanism. What I'm becoming more interested in researching is - how do we harness those drivers and seek to add value to them with data and analytics.

The next 12 months I shall be investigating several topics around workload management, financial management and the balance of quality against agility. Enjoy, dear reader, enjoy!
