As global employment prospects lag behind a slow economic recovery, customers in many parts of the world are more cautious and better informed than ever. They have access to a wealth of information about the products and services they seek, much of it obtained from trusted sources almost immediately. Yet businesses have moved slowly to exploit emerging technologies and information sources like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. As a result, customers often seem better informed about the products and services they buy than companies are about their customers. This imbalance presents a big challenge to companies struggling to avoid commoditisation and it could grow into a competitive disadvantage as customers demand more personalized service.

To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.

In good economic times, success simply means keeping pace. After all, the market is demanding your company’s products and services, and your responsibility is simple: keep up with the demand no matter what it takes. Most managers, whether they are business managers or technology managers respond to this situation the same way. They hire more people to shoulder the increased load. Sales managers seek out more sales reps. Foremen bring more assembly workers online. Customer service beefs up the call center. And IT managers hire more administrators to maintain the constant flux of demands from users, applications, systems, and networks.

Despite its six syllables, 'virtualization' is a straight - forward concept.

Virtualization is an approach to pooling and sharing IT resources so the supply of resources—processing power, storage, networking and so on—can flexibly and automatically meet fluctuating business demand. Virtualization can improve the quality of your IT services, enabling more consistency and predictability of operational availability.

Data modeling has evolved from an arcane technique for database designers into an entire family of interrelated techniques that serves many constituencies, including techno-phobic business stakeholders and users. The new maturity of modeling tools and techniques arrives in the nick of time, because new technical and regulatory realities demand that enterprises maintain scrupulous awareness of their data and how it is used. Data modeling is no longer for databases only, no longer for technologists only, and no longer optional.

Even if a chosen business model establishes some preference for one technique over another, at different points in the value chain, different techniques may be appropriate to plan and manage the demand, the production activities, the resources, and the supply of materials. Knowing when and where to apply each of the different techniques is critical.
