Understanding what you have
Obtaining a useful perspective of what the IT estate contains has always been an issue, either too
expensive to justify the cost or disappointing in the data value. The process has to be accurate and
needs to deliver data value, moreover this data needs to be turned into information, and then mined
as knowledge. Therefore this process needs to be repeatable and have defined project goals that have
been bought into by the business.

- Software Licence Compliance
- Hardware Asset Register
- ITIL systems management processes

Performance engineering was once a fond aspiration, but not a realistic reality. This has
changed; not only do Whitespace Solutions offer tools to achieve this but a well-founded and
recognised methodology to deliver. Performance Engineering is the next step in systems management.
What do we mean by this? In todayís environment we are able to deliver existing services to the user,
but scoping for change has always been difficult, what hardware changes are needed, do we have enough
bandwidth to cope which especially important to the WAN teams. Lengthy pilots can be shortened, and
changes can be tested. How, by modelling the environment and making the changes virtually thus
recognising where new services will have problems within the infrastructure.
This same methodology is proven in the design of aeroplanes, CPUís and software code.
