Full transparency of IT and telecommunication infrastructure is essential to ensure smooth running of IT processes. To gain this kind of transparency, organizations must first gain control over their valuable assets—whether owned, leased, or cloud-enabled. Identifying and visualizing complex units of value is fundamental to IT asset lifecycle management.
Modern IT facilities are also increasingly difficult to control due to the location of IT assets and their components. In most cases, asset locations are not properly documented due to time and cost pressures. To keep in control. To maintain control, it is necessary to maintain relatively current and accurate information about current resources, their relationships, and available capabilities.
IT asset recording and management in modern data centers has become increasingly complex due to the combination of multiple heterogeneous units together to form asset data centers. For example, a server is a bundled IT asset with a large number of connectable and detachable components (such as network cards). The rack in which the server resides is also a complex and transformable asset unit in terms of the server’s power, cooling, and monitoring functions.
Additionally, data centers now have fully automated floors driven by sensors to optimize cooling, making them multi-component assets. These complex assets and their interdependencies each have their own maintenance schedules and service lifecycles, making documenting and managing them a daunting task.
The latest applications with microservices architecture and distributed storage are more challenging to monitor because these asset components do not reside solely in the data center infrastructure. While the database runs in a private cloud operating stack, some parts reside on public cloud infrastructure.
Unfortunately, if an asset is not easy to identify, it is not easy to manage either. This discrepancy can negatively impact IT services, business processes, customer satisfaction, and the ability to allocate and reallocate assets to newly designed digital solutions.
Change is daunting. Organizations may realize they need to revamp their data center infrastructure, but the process can seem overwhelming. How does an organization choose the “right” solution with the least disruption? Customer perspectives provide important insights when evaluating new data center systems.
Data challenges enrich the data center as much as their opportunities. If you were in the position of most companies, the data explosion would likely outpace the organization’s ability to manage while trying to determine how to extract real-time insights. And, for many who face similar challenges, they quickly realize that their infrastructure cannot meet data demands and business expectations.
How do organizations find a solution that provides the data fluidity needed to drive business success while enabling breakthroughs in new areas of business? Will this choice be a career advancement or a career limitation?
Organizations need to ask, “Who are the best businesses?” and it’s easy to start your search by evaluating that list. While the “Big Five” may have brand recognition, it doesn’t necessarily mean their solutions may be right for an organization’s needs.
