Systems management is a combination of techniques and products used to keep IT hardware, software and other resources working and aligned with business goals
Systems management refers to the centralized management of a company’s IT assets, and involves monitoring and managing IT systems and resolving IT problems. Systems management can include:
- Monitoring and managing of networks, servers, storage, printers and end user devices (desktop, laptop and mobile devices), notifying of impending or actual failures, capacity issues and other network events
- Hardware asset inventory and config management
- Application software usage and management
- Software asset inventory, patching, versioning and license management
- Security management, including anti-virus and malware tools
- Automated backup and restore, to backup up data in a central archive
- Service desk problem management, providing an automated process to generate and track problem tickets and resolve issues
As businesses grow so does IT. It’s tough to find a business now that doesn’t depend on IT and as the dependency grows it becomes vitally important to efficiently manage and safeguard IT and data assets.
System management can help keep systems up and running, and maximize IT and employee productivity. They can also help your IT team efficiently roll out new software solutions or upgrade existing ones.
As a company grows the absence of centralized system management can become a pain point. The number of products and solutions available can be confusing and the cost of system management solutions can spiral.
