Organizations are increasingly leveraging next generation IT solutions to support and optimize business processes and outcomes. With technology becoming a critical business enabler, it is imperative for companies to effectively manage IT infrastructure to enhance business agility and ensure seamless operations. However, distributed, dynamic and expansive IT environments, increase complexities, making it difficult to manage cost-effectively and reliably.
Besides reducing cost, organizations need to focus on ensuring flexible, fast and uninterrupted IT services that differentiate themselves and keep pace with the demanding market. Remote infrastructure monitoring (RIM) offer great business value in a highly competitive landscape. It not only offers significant cost advantage but also helps implement smarter infrastructure management strategies.
Organizations are striving hard to:
- Manage complex IT landscape
- Optimize infrastructure performance at lower cost
- Monitor distributed networks
- Accelerate application provisioning
- Minimize risk and ensure high availability
RIM can offer transformational benefits by facilitating automation, standardization, predictive maintenance and continuous process improvement to ensure service delivery excellence. Here are some of the key advantages that organizations can expect by outsourcing RIM services:
Simplify management with automation
Comprehensive automation toolset helps effectively manage complex IT infrastructure. Automation of routine support, governance and administrative tasks enable better utilization of IT resources while enhancing IT operations agility making it more responsive to business changes.
Optimize operations with proactive monitoring
Organizations need to adopt a proactive approach to service and performance management to effectively respond to the changing IT environment and operating models. Experienced RIM service providers offer web-based analytical tools that empower organizations to gain holistic visibility into security, health and performance of the network. Real-time visibility along with trend analysis allow users to proactively identify issues in the network and facilitate corrective action before it impacts users or business performance.
Accelerate provisioning with self-service
Outsourcing RIM services also enables business users to quickly provision IT assets ‘on demand’ saving significant time and effort while enhancing user experience. Most of the key players offer self-service capabilities that eliminate dependency on IT resources and help organizations quickly and cost-effectively manage application landscape.
Optimize performance with real-time visibility
RIM allows organizations to gain unified visibility into enterprise system. Centralized monitoring helps track and manage dynamic and complex environment, monitor service level agreements and optimize performance to ensure better business outcomes. It also accelerates incident resolution and reduces impact.
RIM providers leverage ‘predictive analytics’ to predict potential high severity events and alert administrators so that the remedial action could be taken in advance. This reduces high severity incidents and thereby improves availability.
In an ever-changing business landscape with increasing IT complexities, RIM helps organizations optimize IT efficiency and achieve strategic goals while simultaneously addressing business challenges and requirements. It can truly offer the flexibility, elasticity and agility that maximizes business potential and enables organizations to stay ahead of the curve.
