Webinar - Forrester Research and ManageEngine to Present on the Importance of Unified IT Management
By Rachel Ramsey, TMCnet Web Editor
Many companies today forget just how reliant they are on IT; IT is essential to business competitiveness. As businesses look to embrace the cloud, mobile and other consumerization trends, enterprise IT has to make the right strategic choices when it comes to IT management tool selection.
Today’s companies invest more heavily in enterprise network infrastructure than other type of IT solution. Network management software is designed to enhance the operation, administration and provisioning of networks and related assets within the network. These comprehensive applications allow businesses to better control and maintain their IT networks by centralizing and automating all activities related to tracking, monitoring, servicing and fine-tuning its components.
One of the biggest challenges today’s enterprises face is siloed IT management environments. Businesses in the recent past have witnessed several high-profile outages due to lack of connection between the data and meaningful information generated by different monitoring tools. Today’s fast-paced business needs real-time IT information to make accurate decisions. Integrated IT eliminates the silos, created by disparate point-products which lacks in providing the visibility with accurate Key Performance Indicators (KPI).
Business technology must be proactively managed, taking in to account the underlying, increasingly complex, physical and virtual workloads.
In an upcoming webinar, "Seek An Integrated Approach to Business Technology Management," ManageEngine (News - Alert) and a guest speaker from Forrester are teaming up to present about the importance of unified IT management versus siloed management, monitoring business processes and services versus monitoring just IT infrastructure components, understanding business impacts of IT service gradation, collaboration between IT operations and IT service management to deliver high quality of IT service, CMDB as the heart of the IT systems management and open API system that enables works in a multivendor heterogeneous ecosystem.
