I can think of several features that would be well-received by IT departments that are evaluating/implementing...
virtualization. First, it's still too difficult to quickly and easily move virtual machines between servers in a dynamic sense. The ideal situation would be one in which a pool of virtualization host systems were created, and VMs could be dynamically moved based on resource requirements. Additionally, the ability to manage all types of VMs (regardless of platform) within a single solution is still somewhat elusive. Methods for managing the creation of a VM library and tracking ad-hoc VMs ("VM sprawl") would be great. Finally, in-depth and easy-to-use capacity planning and monitoring tools would be helpful.
