At the end of 2017, Rep. Will Hurd (R-Tx), chairman of the House Information Technology Subcommittee, got his Modernizing Government Technology Act passed.  One aspect of the initiative is to have agencies take a look at several projects and decide which ones may be a good fit for the funds that the program provides.  Nlyte can help support this justification.

During the interview, Vincinelly elucidates upon the ways Nlyte can give a systems administrator information regarding system utilization and consumption patterns.  The phrase that is commonly used to describe this endeavor is Data Center Optimization.  It normally includes capacity planning, asset lifecycle management, as well as IT service management.

Offerings from companies like Nlyte can give you the ability to do some predictive analytics where you can plan out a migration.  Learn what systems will be impacted.  This information will give you information on which data centers to consolidate, which ones to keep, and what to move to the cloud.
