Capacity Management, Training and Virtualization Dominate TTS 2008
Mar 19, 2008 (10:03 AM EDT)
CLEAR LAKE, Iowa, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- TeamQuest Corporation, the global leader in IT Service Optimization (ITSO) software, announced its agenda for the TeamQuest Technology Summit in Tucson, Arizona, April 14-15.
"Customers requested a strong emphasis on our core abilities and how they can manage the virtual environment," said director of corporate marketing Craig Olson.
Capacity management has taken a backseat to virtualization with the popularity of virtualization. However, many companies are in a quandary as they've embraced virtualization, finding themselves tackling an old problem in a new paradigm -- virtual server sprawl.
IDC analyst Tim Grieser and TeamQuest virtualization expert Jim Smith will share their expertise on managing the virtual environment. Attendees will discover the differences among vendors such as VMware, IBM and Sun, and the role capacity management should play.
In addition, TeamQuest is offering a twist to its usual lineup of speakers this year. The San Diego Zoo Chief Technology Officer will share his experiences with IT complexity and aligning IT to business outcomes. Robert Erhardt, who worked for Disney prior to the zoo, will show how IT influences the zoo experience for guests and animals.
