Cloud Capacity Management
Cloud Capacity Management helps readers in understanding what the cloud, IaaS, PaaS, SaaS are, how they relate to capacity planning and management and which stakeholders are involved in delivering value in the cloud value chain. It explains the role of capacity management for a creator, aggregator, and consumer of cloud services and how to provision for it in a 'pay as you use model'. This involves a high level of abstraction and virtualization to facilitate rapid and on demand provisioning of services. The conventional IT service models take a traditional approach when planning for service capacity to provide optimum services levels which has huge cost implications for service providers. This book addresses the gap areas between traditional capacity management practices and cloud service models. It also showcases capacity management process design and implementation in a cloud computing domain using ITSM best practices. This book is a blend of ITSM best practices and infrastructure capacity planning and optimization implementation in various cloud scenarios. Cloud Capacity Management addresses the basics of cloud computing, its various models, and their impact on capacity planning. This book also highlights the infrastructure capacity management implementation process in a cloud environment showcasing inherent capabilities oftool sets available and the various techniques for capacity planning and performance management. Techniques like dynamic resource scheduling, scaling, load balancing, and clustering etc are explained for implementing capacity management.

"Proper capacity management is the driving force behind outstanding corporate performance. Essentials of Capacity Management clearly describes its impact on operations, as well as how to use measurement systems and process analysis to enhance capacity usage. This is a solid foundation in capacity management for the business professional!" Steve Bragg, Author "Although capacity management is a fundamental concern, it-like many other fundamentals-is often scanted. In fact, there's little that's more important to most companies than their ability to manage their capacity, which is simply the ability to do work. Essentials of Capacity Management does a great job of giving a quick, yet thorough, overview of the many considerations involved." Barry J. Brinker, Editor, Guide to Cost Management (John Wiley & Sons) "This book does an excellent job of relating processes to capacity. Managers and executives will better understand that managing the effectiveness and efficiency of processes reduces the amount of capacity required, thus providing an opportunity to reduce costs while improving process quality and reducing process time. It shows the relationship of capacity to demand on downstream processes. It shows that process flexibility reduces required capacity." John Antos, President, Value Creation Group, Inc. The Wiley Essentials Series -because the business world is always changing...and so should you.

Capacity Options for Revenue Management
Arguably the central problem in Operations Research and Management S- ence (OR/MS) addressed by e-business is better coordination of supply and demand, including price discovery and reduction of transaction costs of buyer-seller interactions. In capital-intensive industries like air cargo, the out-of-pocket costs of excess capacity and the opportunity costs of underu- lized capacity have been important factors driving the growth of exchanges for improving demand and supply coordination through e-business pl- forms. Hellermann addresses in his dissertation one of the most interesting - pects of this evolution for OR/MS, the parallel development of long-term and short-term markets for capacity and output, accompanied by a range of option and ?xed-commitment (i. e. , forward) contracts as the basic mec- nisms supporting transactions. This has been a fascinating topic for OR/MS research because it builds on the powerful framework of real options, while connecting directly to key operations decisions (capacity planning, network design, staf?ng, routing, maintenance, and so forth) of the equipment and technologies whose output is the focus of contracts. From the perspective of practice, the integrated use of these Internet-based contracting mechanisms, as facilitated by new B2B exchanges, represents an opportunity for further improving supply chain performance and capital asset productivity. As Hellermann notes, a central feature of B2B for capital-intensive - dustries is that contracting needs to take place well in advance of actual delivery.

Dynamic Capacity Management for Healthcare
While hospitals can learn from other industries, they cannot be improved or run like factories. With work that is more individualized than standardized, and limited control over volume and arrivals, even the leanest-minded hospital must recognize that healthcare systems are more dynamic than nearly any work environment. Written with the creativity needed to navigate the rapidly changing landscape of healthcare, Dynamic Capacity Management for Healthcare: Advanced Methods and Tools for Optimization presents the unique new tools, methodologies, and thinking required of healthcare systems that want to survive and thrive in a reduced reimbursement, higher-cost world. Demonstrating his approaches and recommendations through case studies specific to the complex issues of healthcare delivery, Pierce Story, a long-time and passionate healthcare operations expert, shows how hospitals and health systems can make leaps in performance in an environment in which both financial and human resources are shrinking as expectations for clinical perfection continue to rise. Through its unique approach to the dynamic management of complex care systems, this volume raises the bar for what is possible. This text presents an excellent opportunity for healthcare's change agents to meet the challenges and responsibilities of our day.

From this strategic view, it zooms into the most common challenges—performance management and capacity management. It introduces a new concept called Performance SLA and also a new way of doing capacity management. The next part provides the actual solution that you can implement in your environment. It puts the theories together and provides real-life examples created together with customers. It provides the reasons behind each dashboard, so that you get the understanding on why it is required and what problem it solves. The last part acts as a reference section.

The Capacity Crisis in Disaster Risk Management
How can a place be built and managed so that it is safe for people to live? Ironically, many governments and citizens keep on asking the same question after every new disaster. Why, even with high levels of investment in increasing government's capacity to manage disasters, do the impacts of disasters continue to increase? What can the governments do differently? What is the role of local communities? Where should aid agencies invest? This book looks into these critical questions and highlights how current capacity development efforts might be resulting in the oppositecapacity crisis or capability trap. The book provides a new approach for the understanding and the developing of effective local capacity to reduce and manage future disaster impacts.
