This blog relates to experiences in the Systems Capacity and Availability areas, focusing on statistical filtering and pattern recognition and BI analysis and reporting techniques (SPC, APC, MASF, 6-SIGMA, SEDS/SETDS and other)
Much of the world is moving to cloud, and many significant parts of IT are changing at the same time. Capacity planning is far from obsolete, but practicing it in a rapidly changing environment will be very different from practicing it in the past. This session shows where the field is going.
