Q&A


Advanced Normalization


Normalization in IT Systems Management:


Is fundamental
-

to manage Complex Data Environments


Is the “glass ceiling”
on your IT Management Process

Efficacy, Efficiency &
Determines
Process Management
Overhead


Is… “
Normal

-

Collections, Filters, Groups, Containers..
etc


Can be tuned
-

Increasing the granularity of normalization means that your
process management results become less “one size fits all” and more up to the
challenge of the real
-
world complexities of your enterprise. Under
-
normalization
means that your process leaves an expensive mess that
has

to be

cleaned up
-

no
opt out.


Can change your IT world
-

Systems management technologies (e.g. System
Center/Altrinsic etc.) allow increased granularity thus enabling better policy fit
and therefore process output quality
-

all while
decreasing management overhead
.


OSD: Before Advanced Normalization



H.I.D.

A computer is not a make or model, but a collection of unique parts…

The consequences of resource gaps

Incomplete image
deployments are an
expensive hassle for
organizations and
force the

I.T. Administrator to
be the “human glue”
holding it all
together.

dx Driver Process

Driver Packaging Process after DX


DX Regularly analyzes the
environment and normalizes
the computers into easily
manageable class groupings

Analyze


Harvest the drivers from
every device in the
environment. Drivers are
stored in a single instanced
driver repository.

Harvest


The task sequence has been
DX integrated, so any new
platform drivers are
automatically targeted and
delivered… done.

Integrate


DX analyzes
ConfigMgr’s

hardware inventory so that
new systems and device
adds/moves/changes are
programmatically added or
modified.

Maintain

The Advantage


System
Center 2012 enables enterprises to incorporate private,
hosted, and public cloud computing resources while still satisfying
their unique business needs. It organizes existing IT assets (network,
storage, compute) into a private cloud that is seamlessly integrated
with hosted and public cloud
services.


Make
your private cloud more efficient
by building
automated
workflows for
standard processes
such as incident
management,
problem
management, change
management, and
release
management
.


Standardize compute, network,
and storage
resources into a private
cloud fabric
that is then allocated to
business units
using Active
Directory.
