Summary

This chapter outlined the first phase of a server virtualization project: the envisioning phase. Envisioning is not about developing a server virtualization solution; rather, it is about understanding the current environment and the problems that exist in the environment that could be addressed with a server virtualization solution. The main tasks in the envisioning phase include developing a list of the problems in the environment and prioritizing them, assembling the project team, deciding what problems are in scope and out of scope, performing a preliminary ROI analysis, identifying and ranking project risks, and defining a preliminary budget to complete the discovery and assessment phases.
