Month to Month - Year to Year Capacity Planning

SMT Data’s CTO Steven Thomas will represent the company at the GSE Nordic Region Conference in Oslo, Norway.

Steven will hold a keynote speech with the title: “Month to Month – Year to Year Capacity Planning”.

The conference will take place May 23 – May 25, 2023 in Oslo.


Real world experience with capacity planning from Topdanmark, a large insurance company in Denmark. In Top Denmark’s mainframe environment, the hardware and software are outsourced, but system programming remains inhouse.

The capacity management process starts with a selection of SMF records. Next step is to turn raw data into useful information for capacity planning.

The historical capacity usage provides a baseline on top of which is added planned increases in business volume, estimated unplanned workload and working “white space” for final capacity allocation.
