With increased infrastructure consolidation comes increased role consolidation. The movement to consolidation calls for cross-functional teams. Rigid roles and silos will not work in the future. Use this storyboard to:
- Develop a unified service management team. Re-orient the focus of your team away from assets and towards services.
- Rediscover the lost art of capacity management and planning. Managing capacity optimizes current performance and efficiency and prepares for future requirements.
- Manage virtual systems alongside physical systems. Virtualization needs to be viewed as just another infrastructure layer and managed as such.
Help your team excel outside the roles of the traditional IT shop. Consolidation requires viewing infrastructure as holistic services, not as siloed assets.
