The network and system infrastructure resource utilisation evaluation to predict the economic effect of a possible optimisation project

The first step is to discover the current status of the environment from its resource utilisation point of view. We thus evaluate whether there are problems with the environment resource configuration and where these problems reside. We then produce estimation figures of the possible savings that could be achieved by optimising an inefficiently scaled network or system environment. In case of an overutilised environment, we produce the figures that allow us to estimate what kind of expansion is required to bring the resources up to the required level, however, in most cases we incounter a significant surplus of resources and estimate the possible savings on the infrastructure costs that can be achieved by reutilising the resources for the Enterprise expansion needs. These resources normally consist in either bandwidth, network equipment and/or computer hardware resources depending on the environment.

The Evaluation phase produces the infrastructure resource economic savings estimation figures that determine the scope of a possible optimisation project. We take care of the estimated or defined service level parameters and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) applicable to the environment and the particular service to determine what resources can be saved. We take Service and SLA oriented infrastructure optimisation approach to meet the objective of the required performance delivery at a minimal cost while respecting the reliability and an immediate term expansion requirements.

The obtained estimation figures would determine whether an optimisation project or an expansion design project should take place or whether an environment is already in its optimal state.
