What is capacity management?
Capacity management is the process of ensuring that IT capacity is able to meet current and future business needs in a cost-effective manner. In capacity management, in contrast to other management areas, planning and implementation are more proactive than reactive.
The implementation of capacity management is improved and the level of service and service quality is improved at lower costs.
Capacity management is closely related to financial management and ITIL service level management. With the constant change in technology, capacity management helps to identify potential for improvement and helps to plan requirements more efficiently and precisely. It can help to find scalable solutions for various capacity constraints in the organization.
