Businesses now rely on IT for just about everything they do. It is safe to say that IT is no longer just a support function for most companies, but it is now an integral part of their operations. So it is no surprise that IT is one of the biggest investments in any company. Gartner forecasts that IT spending around the world would grow by 2.6% in 2014 and by 3.2% in 2018.
So given how crucial IT is to your operations, how do you make sure that everything works as it should? How do you lessen the amount of downtime of anything from your applications, database, middleware, software, servers and other parts of your IT infrastructure? Would you even have enough time to monitor, maintain and troubleshoot everything, given how wide the scope of IT is in your enterprise?
Without an effective enterprise IT management tools and software, it is going to be very difficult and overwhelming to manage your IT. Business leaders and decision-makers might also have the technical expertise to oversee their IT infrastructure, but the sheer number of things to do and things to watch out for can easily deplete your time for business critical processes and activities.
