Capacity Management is described in most key ITSM frameworks: ITIL, ISO 20000 Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF) and the Application Service Library (ASL) all note the importance of Capacity Management. This major title meets the need for an in-depth practical guide to this critical process. Written and reviewed by some of the world’s most respected experts in this field it shows how Capacity Management best practice can support provision of a consistent, acceptable service level at a known and controlled cost. Practical advice covers the essential control of two balances: Supply versus demand and resources versus cost.

In times of mean, frugal economic measures, it is essential to focus on those practices that are effective and yield practical results. In enlightened times of sustainability, it is also a requirement to find solutions that satisfy the criteria for 'greenness'. This excellent title shows how Capacity Management works not only within an IT environment but also why it is pivotal in meeting high profile business demands.
