3 © 2010 IBM Corporation Business Analytics 3 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 vendors 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 dont use any tools/automation and feel we should.

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. ** Internal Use Only **

5 © 2010 IBM Corporation Business Analytics Introduction Customer X is seeking an alternative to its current capacity management solution. An alternative solution should: –Meet or exceed the capabilities of the current environment. –Provide a cost effective approach. –Be extensible and grow in accordance with Customer Xs IT & Business Strategy

8 © 2010 IBM Corporation Business Analytics IBM Capacity Management for System z Effective cost control and management Determine & monitor production capacity System utilization Operating System & sub systems Monitor application usage Charge backs Maintain service level agreements Predictable planning for growth What if scenario modeling Impact of Application standardization Server consolidation Upgrade predictability Incremental application growth Facilitate orderly growth Support emerging trends Enterprise Cloud Computing Predict the impacts of User On-boarding Business Analytics solution management

9 © 2010 IBM Corporation Business Analytics 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
