Conference paper

Abstract

With information technology gaining more and more strategic importance in today’s business world, enterprises have more than ever to be aware of supplying the computing services the company needs. On the other hand, IS resources are a major cost issue. Therefore, capacity planning can no longer be defined as just projecting system growth and hardware requirements. Instead its “...ultimate purpose must be to project capital expenditures into the future as part of an organizational plan” (Thewlis (1990), p. 47). If capacity planning is, therefore, understood as a process that must be performed by both technical and financial experts, it is evident that there is a need to simultaneously consider the implications of investment decisions in both areas.
