7: Transform Forecasts into Resource Requirements

After the workload forecasts are collected, projected changes need to be transformed into resource requirements. Sophisticated measurement tools or a senior analyst's expertise can help in changing projected transaction loads, for example, into increased capacity of server processors. The worksheets also allow you to project the estimated timeframes during which workload increases will occur. For major application workloads, it's wise to utilize the performance centers that key suppliers of the servers, database software, and enterprise applications offer. These suppliers are normally more than willing to lend their capacity planning expertise to current or prospective clients, but surprisingly few shops take advantage of these low-cost or no-cost services.
