How Many IT Systems Management Hats Are You Wearing?

When it comes to systems management for your IT operations, do you feel the pressure to do more with less?

Guy wearing lots of hats

Budget constraints, headcount reductions and continually escalating user demands… IT systems management professionals in today’s organizations are forced to wear too many hats. Often this is because the size and sophistication of your environment has grown, but the staff and budgetary resources necessary to manage it have not kept pace. You’re under constant pressure to do more with less, ensure security and compliance, improve the accuracy of IT inventory and speed service desk responsiveness.

Corporations across all industries are under increasing pressure to cut costs and work more efficiently. In the race to meet both of these requirements, many organizations turn to technology, often purchasing and installing disparate pieces of equipment and software in hopes of achieving efficiencies not afforded by manual systems.

Many try to “do more with less” by using a combination of IT systems management point solutions, free tools and custom scripts to manage day to day tasks. Then, you are ultimately forced to deal with the added cost and complexity of deploying and administering multiple products, while plugging gaps in a cobbled-together solution with manual processes. “Doing more with less” then becomes “doing less with more.”

But, there is a better, much easier way that actually does “do more with less.” IT systems management automation deploys software to manage routine maintenance tasks in a seamless fashion. Time consuming administration, monitoring and helpdesk services that eat up an organization’s IT resources are handled by the technology platform, which runs in the background and requires little human intervention.

IT automation enables a proactive, instead of reactive, service delivery model. Systems run smoother, with less downtime, greatly improving user satisfaction levels. IT departments typically realize immediate time and personnel savings, not to mention reduced licensing fees for software maintenance. IT automation also provides improvements in energy efficiency and security, which in turn lower data center costs.
