IVIS-31, Ease your way now into TBM / ITFBM
Next Step – If a full-blown TBM / ITFBM methodology seems daunting to try to launch this calendar year, implement at least one tool that will at least help you get started.
One example is VMTurbo, which has an excellent white-paper to help frame the concept of dynamic (“agile”) operations of virtual services. They use a construct of an IT Service Supply Chain (see below image). Conceptually, this can help start an operational model for a virtualized infrastructure, which will be key to a successful TBM / ITFBM implementation.
The below image is from a VMTurbo whitepaper entitled “Applying an Economic Model to IT Management,” which can be downloaded from White Papers & Briefs | vmturbo.com.
