Raw data becomes actionable information, supplying both technical and business units with the metrics they need to utilize IT resources more efficiently and effectively. Doing more with less. Customers are faced with this challenge every day; it means managing increasing business volumes and functions with fewer IT staff and the hardware and software you already have. CA MICS Resource Management makes it possible to work smarter, not harder, by exploiting automation and providing analysis tools and customized reporting to present the information you need to make critical business decisions and manage your dynamic IT environment. The discipline of resource management supports such ITIL management process as Capacity Management, Financial Management, Service Level Management, Availability Management and more. As companies extend their reach to their customers via the Web, performance management becomes a critical component. Applications must not just be available, they must also be highly responsive. To understand historical trends, manage present day performance and plan for future demands, a robust resource management database is essential CA MICS Resource Management is that database. But it is more. CA MICS Resource Management provides both the data AND the tools to perform the wide range of tasks and processes as indicated above. With enterprises under continuous pressure to control costs and improve profitability, capacity upgrades must be defensible; having immediate access to the right information is critical for preparing an accurate capacity plan and establishing cost justification. Mapping business processes to IT services and resources enables more accurate capacity planning and performance management. You need easy access to historical data to characterize workloads, spot trends and forecast growth as well as to understand and resolve performance problems. 5

6 The CA Technologies advantage CA Technologies has 35 years of recognized expertise in robust, reliable, scalable, and secure enterprise-class IT management software. CA MICS is a key component of the CA Technologies initiative to change the way the mainframe is managed forever by helping you maximize the value of CA Technologies mainframe products and by providing a simplified experience and innovative solutions designed to deliver value more quickly and flexibly. As IT environments become larger and more complex, the volume of data needed to manage them also increases. For most organizations, analyzing the raw data produced by each server or other resource no longer helps them manage their cross-system, cross-application enterprise. Instead, they need a scalable solution that helps them consolidate, correlate and analyze this data at the process/ transaction, system and business process level. The solution must simplify management of the data, improve visualization and offer streamlined analysis capabilities to the wide audience needing to access the data. CA MICS provides database and tools to help meet this need by delivering one of the most comprehensive and scalable resource utilization management system available. Whether you are managing end user performance, planning for future capacity, managing finances, or controlling storage demands, you need easy access to enterprise data. CA MICS delivers it, in purpose-designed graphics or tables. Copyright 2012 CA. All rights reserved.
