ORSYP has published a new White Paper entitled “Capacity Management & Lean Six-Sigma: steps towards removing IT waste”.
The immense pressure on businesses to “do more with less” demands that IT Operations Managers consider new approaches in order to find productivity. ORSYP’s new White Paper proposes a new operating lever inspired by industrial methods such as Lean Six Sigma: declare war on waste.
Familiar in an industrial context, the term “waste” is not part of IT Departments’ vocabulary. Nevertheless, this term reflects a well-known reality for Management: Waste, such as over or under use of physical servers, is real but rarely handled with an industrial rigor.
Based on operational case studies, this White Paper presents a step-by-step guide on how to transfer the Lean Thinking approach to the Capacity Management process; how to identify and eliminate the most common waste across IT Operations; and the mismatching of technical resources with real business needs. To reduce operating costs and investments, IT Operations Managers have to continually pursue non-value added resources: The war on waste is on.
