An infrastructure management solution is a tool aimed at managing all the essential components of a business, such as data, human resources, policies and procedures, equipment and processes to achieve the maximum overall effectiveness.
Infrastructure management covers all aspects of your business, including systems, networks and infrastructure.
Infrastructure management seeks to achieve the following:
- Monitoring and management of network, server, storage and user devices, including proactive management of threatening activities, capacity issues, and other systems and network management services.
- Hardware and configuration management, including operating systems and related licence management.
- Application software management.
- Security management.
- Automated backup and restore management services.
Infrastructure management forms the basis upon which all the business processes are run, yet it is often undervalued and subsequently the resources made available for this is not always adequate. Yet the proper investment in infrastructure management can have a large impact on how the business performs.
A smart infrastructure management solution aims to maximise efficiency at choice at any scale with the least amount of resources. The solution needs to converge IT infrastructure across the board, simplifying IT operations to reduce complexity of operations and optimising resources by lowering costs.
