Collaborating with Application Owners

Provide Visibility into & Justification for Infrastructure Enhancements

Application owners are often the final approvers of any recommended infrastructure changes for optimization. Rightly so, the priority is stability and performance versus simply cost—and this means they are very protective of the resources that underpin their applications.

In order to be successful with infrastructure optimization, IT and platform owners, capacity optimization teams, and leadership must build trust with application managers and stakeholders and ensure that they have the visibility and information they need to approve any proposed changes.

Equipping a finance organization only with analytics to examine bills will do little to actually impact the required changes for true optimization.

Densify focuses on these relationships with key capabilities that enable all parties to collaborate to impact change.

Automatic Impact Analysis Reporting for Application Owners

We show our work, generating easy-to-understand rationales for every recommended infrastructure optimization:

  • Every recommended change includes a comprehensive Impact Analysis Report, designed especially for justifying recommended enhancements to the owners of your apps
  • Reports can be distributed automatically in a variety of ways, including through communication and collaboration environments like Slack
