Ideas for more consumable actions

After initial deployment, it may take many Turbonomic actions to bring the existing environment to a more desired state. As a new user to Turbonomic it can be hard to digest and consume those actions and understand where to start.

Some ideas to help on that journey:

  1. Tiered Actions based on perceived risk and value

    1. Perceived risk is related to disruptiveness and ease of reversal.

    2. Value is related to the benefit of taking the action.

    3. Categorize actions from lowest to highest perceived risk/value.

    4. Users can start with the lowest risk and realize value quickly.

    5. Automatic policies applied to action tiers.

  2. Action validation

    1. Some sort of confidence scoring of actions based on empirical analysis of what actions have historically delivered the most value under certain scenarios.

    2. High confidence, low risk actions would yield the most value.

  3. Action effectiveness

    1. The immediate effectiveness of taking actions after deployment.

    2. The ongoing effectiveness of automating actions long term.

    This is definitely a good direction. We are working on similar ideas in the context of PLG. The idea there as also described above, is to present the user with the top-X actions in terms of risks and similarly in terms of savings, with the ability to filter on parameters such as the actions being reversible, executable, etc.
