Create Sizing Guides

IBM Sizing Guides are just the essential tool to deliver fast, precise, customized hardware recommendations to customers, prospects and partners. IBM Systems Workload Estimator (WLE) Developer is the tool used to create the Sizing Guide and application performance data is the input to develop the logic for the sizing engine. Once the end-user questions required to size the application are decided, the tool can be used to create these questions, add logic to link them to utilize the performance data to determine the hardware requirement.

This will create the Sizing Guide template or .OEM file, stored locally on PC. The validated template can be used to save the Sizing Guide as a HTML file to launch the template via an internet browser to run the Sizing Guide on Sizing engine. After testing, the Sizing Guide can be hosted by IBM and deployment process for the Sizing Guide is available here.
