THE Distributed Capacity Management Section (DCMS) is the group within the IRS responsible for this area of activity. According to DCMS, the greatest benefit of Athene is its modeling capability, together with the data collection and reporting capabilities. Before Athene was implemented, a majority of staff time was spent collecting data, analyzing it and producing manual reports. Now, only about 10% of their time is spent in this way, and the rest is devoted to growth strategy and trend analysis. A side benefit is that no more tedious spreadsheets have to be produced by hand. DCMS take graphs produced by Athene and use them for reports to their upper management, as well as reports to operations.
