The Evolution of Storage Workbook enables analysis of how well storage needs are currently being met at the organization in terms of performance and capacity.
- Data will be collected across a range of categories in order to create a baseline understanding of storage in the organization.
- Storage growth goals, growth trends, and specific initiatives impacting storage will then be incorporated to help understand what future changes are required to meet data storage needs.
- Later steps will incorporate goals and priorities to guide solutions selection.
- Project costing and net benefit analysis will follow to show the impact of your project choices.
If an overarching documented IT strategy exists, then the end-goal of this project will be to create a storage growth plan that enables this strategy within budget limitations. The Evolution of Storage Workbook will guide you through all steps of this process.
