Summary:

In our next webinar, the analyst panel will provide simple steps that businesses can use to produce hard numbers and discuss the ways in which they can apply that data to evaluate and justify spending. Join us along with our sponsor VictorOps on April 30.

Operational expenses

The rise of the cloud, the move toward continuous delivery and the adoption of more-agile development methodologies are disrupting the way we create and consume applications. In that chaos is an opportunity for businesses to rebuild themselves more rationally but only if they can truly understand their costs.

The central metric to any strategic calculation is the value of peak performance. Once businesses understand the value of uptime, they can substitute data for instinct when calculating business continuity planning, SLAs, performance and capacity upgrades, and other operational expenses. They can also begin to translate performance and cost metrics with internal and external partners and provide visibility into the value created by IT.

In this webinar, our panel will discuss:

  • How are businesses currently quantifying the value of performance and the cost of outages? What are they missing, and what are the impacts?
  • What types of data should organizations collect, both inside and outside IT?
  • How can a longer-term, more-comprehensive understanding of outage costs inform remediation strategies?
  • How can businesses integrate more-detailed cost metrics with their product and project development methodologies?

Speakers include:

  • Larry Cornett, product strategy and design consultant, Brilliant Forge
  • Dave Ohara, founder, GreenM3
  • Logan Kleier, information security officer, City of Portland
  • Todd Vernon, founder and CEO, VictorOps
