Download Management is an important part of the journey that organizations today must make toward virtualizing across business and IT infrastructures. IBM has identified four points at which an organization can begin this journey:

• Consolidating resources to reduce capital costs and use assets more efficiently, and to enhance service delivery and business agility.

• Managing workloads across both the physically consolidated infra-structure and virtualized resources, to extend cost reduction and improved service delivery across both environments.

• Automating processes to increase process effectiveness by codifying business rules and priorities and automating standardized processes.

• Optimizing delivery to leverage the most cost-effective ways of providing service and to more fully align IT and business by enabling service self-provisioning.
