  3. What is a Service?
  4. Service Level Agreement (SLA) A contract between a service provider and a customer that specifies, usually in measurable terms, what services the network service provider will furnish. Percent of time services will be available Number of users that can be served simultaneously Specific performance benchmarks to which actual performance Help desk response time Penalties for not meeting guaranteed levels Usage statistics
  5. Golden age of IT Management One number to call Answer in minutes
  6. Middles Ages Servers grouped together Could physically see problems Multiple Vendors to call
  7. Modern Servers Virtualization Blade Servers Physical location can change based on need
  8. Today’s Services Secure Manage Measure PHYSICAL VIRTUAL CLOUD Today’s services will run in a mixed physical, virtual and cloud. The location of an individual services can dynamically change based on availability and compute requirements.
  9. “Sprawling” Databases Servers Applications Networks Monitored in Silos Performance Availability Capacity Traffic Doesn’t Correlate Creates Risk No View of Impact Costly Diagnosis Costly Downtime Today’s Management Lightly integrated silos It’s a jungle out there… How can you stay ahead of the chaos?

Operations CenterTransforming IT to Drive Value and Competitive Advantage “Giving IT the ability to drive an organizations performance with technology and answer:” This requires a solution that transforms the sea of technical data into actionable, intelligent information.
  13. Quick Fire ExerciseIntroduction to NetIQ NOC What is a Service What happens when you don’t have a complete view of everything that makes up a service How have things changed to make the viewing of services more complicated
  14. Ensuring IT is Business Driven
  15. Top CIO Operational ChallengesThe Great Divide! I’M FOCUSED ON: I’M WORRIED ABOUT: Growth and innovation Alignment to common IT/business objectives Market agility Optimization and cost reduction Cost to manage new technologies Complex measurements Risk due to speed Trying to do more with less! Increasing complexity fromphysical, virtual and cloud delivery options anda multitude of management technologies
  16. The “New IT”Driving Value and Competitive Advantage Counts Mission: Help Board of Directors See the Competitive Advantage Communicate Value Delivered – Not Technology Performance Move from Operating to Powering the Business “52% of Board Members rate ‘maintaining competitive advantage’ of ‘extremely high importance’…” only “16% of Board of Directors have any experience in IT” Gartner Forbes 2011 Survey of Board of Directors NACD (National Assoc. of Corporate Directors) 2011 BSMReview Survey Leading Industry Analyst “65% of Board Members hold ‘high to very high’ expectations for IT strategic contribution to the business in 2012” Gartner Forbes 2011 Survey of Board of Directors
  17. IT Departments Are Under Great PressureChange – Complexity – Risk Things are Virtual and mobile Growing list of alternatives Budgets are shrinking The cloud is here The Disrupter
  18. IT is Transforming into “Service Brokers”Business is Driving the “New” IT IT departments are increasingly multi-source, hybrid orgs, taking on the role of “services brokers” IT departments want to manage internal and external services as a unified portfolio Capabilities, and outcomes, rather than assets IDC Forecast: By 2013, 52% of IT budgets will be dedicated to “OUTSOURCED IT” – ASP, Public Cloud, and Enterprise/Hosted Private Cloud
  19. So… How is IT Doing Today?Typical "Report Card" of a C – or D + Deliver: Efficiency and Effectiveness SLA Reports : Manual, not trusted Cost of Report : 10 Days / month Service Value ROIs : Non-existent 85% of IT operations budgets are spent maintaining and reacting! 85% Operate: Performance and Availability Downtime : 1 – 2% Revenue Customer Reported : >70% Process Errors : >80% Control: Risk and Compliance Emergencies : >50% of Changes Failed Changes : >50% Automated Audits : Non-existent 1 – 2% of Revenue Just “Keeping the Lights On”
  20. What’s the Impact of a Poor Grade? On average, every hour of down time equates to a loss of $100,000 – and most organizations experience 10 hours of downtime, or $1M/year A single, severe outage can be as high as 1-2% of revenue – regardless of company size With 85% of IT budgets spent on maintaining and reacting, companies are losing 1-2% off their bottom line Do Not Have Visibility of Impact to the Business!
  21. So… How Could IT Be Doing Today?Report Card of a B+ or Better Deliver: 75% Impact Avoidance 60% of IT operations budgets are spent maintaining and reacting! 60% $100,000 / hour – 10 hours / Year – $1M/Year Avoid and shift 1-2% of Revenue to Growing Operate: 90% Diagnosis Reduction Operating Business to Powering Business Control: 30% Efficiency Improvement 1-2% of Revenue Maintaining and Reacting Shift by 25-30% ~1% Revenue to Growing
  22. What IT Needs is Control Delivered Through a Single, Consolidated View of Service Performance Asset Data Business KPIs Service Desk Configuration Performance Availability
  23. The Answer Business Service Management is the practice of enabling IT to communicate service performance aligned to business objectives, while maintaining control over the infrastructure. 1 – 2% Revenue Just Keeping the Lights On 1 – 2% Revenue Service Impacting Events Service Monitoring Service Mapping >80% of Downtime Due to Poor Process Service Measuring
  24. Business Service Management Here’s a simple analogy: If your business is like a high-performance car… …then Business Service Management is your instrument panel – giving you the insight and visibility to maintain your performance
  25. “Gauging” Service Performance Configuration Availability Performance Availability Configuration The “instruments” all communicate service performance –early warning indicators to help avoid service outages and collateral damage (stopping the car before it overheats and STOPS!)
  26. Find the Right IT “Balance” More than ever, CIOs are challenged with “balancing” between operating and growing Emphasis has been on maintaining existing IT infrastructure and responding to outages Focus must shift to automating operational functions and applying IT to help grow business Operating Growing
