Business Analytics
What is your capability to plan?
 We have a firm grasp on our growth projections and use a tool to manage and monitor our
existing capacity & growth.
 We have a reasonable idea of our growth and yet believe we could do more. We are using a
vendor’s tool to monitor our current situation but would like to be better prepared.
 We are concerned about our current future capacity planning methodology as we intend to
grow our use of the mainframe and need better guidance and predictability.
 We are using SAS/MXG and are looking for a replacement at a lower cost and with newer
function.
 We don’t use any tools/automation and feel we should.

Changing your vision
 The IBM solution is intended to create a better vision for the
enterprise customer including the ability to predict where you will be or
might go if you had different scenarios to test.
 It is intended to match as many of the existing SAS/MXG functions and features as possible in
Release 1 and will be enhanced over time.
 Rather than compare feature for feature, think in terms of what you will be able to do over time
with less cost and greater flexibility.
 The IBM solution is not intended to be a full SAS replacement option; that will require
significantly more resources and services though it can be done if you so desire.

Capacity Management Solution – More Detail
 IBM solution involves four parts:
– An extractor to read, parse, and rationalize the SMF data to replace SAS/MXG (MICS)
– A repository to hold the normalized data to replace SAS data sets
– A reporting engine to replace the current SAS programmed reports.
– Simulation and analytics engines to (1) optimize performance level and (2) understand
causal factors impacting performance at the application level.
 Those parts will be satisfied as follows:
– Tivoli Decision Support for system Z (TDSz) will read, normalize, and store the data
– DB2 on zOS (DB2) will serve as the repository for the data
– Cognos 10 Business Intelligence, (C10BI), reporting engine will be the reporting platform
– SPSS Statistics and Modeler will perform predictive analytics at the application level and
integrate with Cognos 10 BI.
– Pre-built standard reports
– Solution package will include all the pieces necessary to build a reporting infrastructure
across the managed environment
 Optional:
– Services to install, configure and build additional reports
– Migrate the customer from the current solution and preserve existing information

Typical Utilization for Servers
Windows: 5-10% Unix: 10-20% System z: 85-100%
System z can help reduce your floor space
up to 75%-85% in the data center
For additional information please contact
[email protected]
System z can lower your total cost of ownership, requiring as little as 30%
of the power of a distributed server farm running equivalent workloads
The cost of storage is typically three times more in
distributed environments
