    14. 14. What is IT metering?IT metering is the process of gathering and analyzing IT infrastructure consumption, just likemetering electric utility consumption with a meter today. IT metering enables organizations to optimize costs and operational efficiency by:• Normalizing IT resource consumption data from all infrastructure into one single unit of measure regardless of the location, operating systems, hypervisors, or cloud platforms for comprehensive, apples-to-apples analysis• Identifying over-provisioned hardware and opportunities to eliminate waste• Pinpointing optimal utilization rates to save money and improve operational efficiency• Classifying workloads and matching them with the appropriate type of IT infrastructure If you are interested in learning more about the survey data, about IT metering, or about 6fusion, please visit www.6fusion.com or email us at info@6fusion.com
