The bigger the project, the better the capacity test has to be. In 2008 a new flight terminal opened at Heathrow airport in the UK. It was named Terminal 5 and cost £4.3bn - projects don’t really get bigger than this. The first days after opening were not perfect. Problems with staff screening and technical glitches led to the cancellation of 34 flights, which made all the national news channels very happy. They reported the inadequate capacity of the baggage handling system, the misery of passengers, and pretty much anything else they could find to complain about.
Can the vast resources of cloud computing help us to more accurately model the capacity required for projects the size of Heathrow Terminal 5? Disruption to 34 flights and a few thousand passengers is a lot of misery, but just a drop in Heathrow’s ocean. You could call that a success. Will enterprises demand better capacity management tools in the cloud?
