We could not function without ASG-PERFMAN or a similar product. It provides us with the ability to drill into server performance, understand what is causing issues and predicting future resource constraints.
Staines, UK (PRWEB UK) 4 June 2014
ASG Software Solutions’ performance management and capacity planning tool ASG-PERFMAN delivers enterprises 165 per cent ROI and a net present value (NPV) of $1.4M over three years according to research firm Forrester.
The Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study conducted by Forrester, evaluated ASG-PERFMAN’s investment value based on benefits, costs, risks and flexibility.
The study reveals the compelling financial benefits of having an integrated performance management and capacity planning solution, particularly on server administrator productivity, IT infrastructure and storage-related costs.
Cost and benefits were generated by examining four current ASG-PERFMAN customers’ experiences, which were used to create a sample composite organisation to show generally what a company could expect to see after deploying the solution. The analysis showed that organisations are able to:
- Manage their servers with a team that is five to ten times smaller
- Save $54K in OPEX and $180K in CAPEX due to optimisation and avoiding overprovisioning of IT infrastructure
- Deploy the solution and start benefiting from out-of-the-box functionalities in less than two weeks
- Defer 5TB of storage for one year
- Have a single tool with a single point of control to manage Windows, Unix, Linux, and z/Architecture environments
“We could not function without ASG-PERFMAN or a similar product,” said a service level manager of a healthcare information services provider. “It provides us with the ability to drill into server performance, understand what is causing issues and predicting future resource constraints.”
Prior to using ASG-PERFMAN, most of the interviewed customers did some performance management, but had no real capacity planning practice in place, according to the study. The lack of visibility drove them to look for a solution that would provide a consistent view across all of their different platforms. With ASG-PERFMAN, customers are able to realise productivity gains and reduce IT costs.
ASG-PERFMAN also allows IT professionals and executives to get immediate access to crucial information about IT resource utilisation, future capacity demand, and service level impacts, using intelligent enterprise-wide business views. It provides superior analysis, trending, forecasting and modeling that allows a company to set realistic expectations, prevent unnecessary hardware purchases, maximise expensive resources, and communicate accurate and actionable information.
“All too often, enterprises lack the capability to gain end-to-end visibility across infrastructure elements,” said Marla Axelrod, Solutions Marketing Manager, ASG Software Solutions. “This makes a performance management solution with integrated capacity planning critical to running an efficient, stable and agile environment. This TEI study by Forrester validates what we consider to be the strong financial impact that ASG-PERFMAN can have on an enterprise as such a solution.”
