Enterprise IT Management Software
IT management software is a tool that helps businesses manage their information technology (IT) infrastructure. These tools help companies monitor and control network performance, security, and compliance. IT management software provides real-time data about the status of systems, users, applications, and networks.
1. Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is a model of service delivery for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computer resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or interaction with a provider’s staff.
2. Data Center Consolidation
Data center consolidation is the process of consolidating servers and storage devices into fewer physical locations. This reduces power consumption, cooling costs, floor space requirements, and the need for additional server room facilities.
Virtualization is the use of hardware abstraction to allow multiplexing of system resources over time and space via the virtualization of hardware platforms.
4. Network Security
Network security refers to the protection of computers and computer networks from unauthorized access, destruction or modification.
5. Mobile Device Management
Mobile device management (MDM) is the practice of managing mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops, using software designed to provide centralized administration and configuration capabilities. MDM solutions may include remote wiping, application distribution, and mobile device tracking.
6. Unified Communications
Unified communications (UC) is a set of technologies that enable people to communicate across different channels and devices. UC includes voice, video, messaging, conferencing, presence, instant messaging, email, fax, web collaboration, social networking integration, mobility, and others.
1. Enterprise IT Infrastructure Management (ITIM)
Enterprise IT infrastructure management (ITIM) is the practice of managing enterprise-wide information technology (IT) systems and networks. ITIM involves planning, design, implementation, operation, maintenance, and improvement of IT systems and networks. IT systems and networks are often referred to as “enterprise” systems because they serve many users across the organization.
2. Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is a model of service delivery for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computer resources that do not require end user knowledge about specific hardware or software. These services are provided over the Internet and designed for maximum efficiency using commodity off-the-shelf hardware and software components.
3. Data Center Consolidation
Data center consolidation refers to the process of consolidating data centers by combining two or more smaller data centers into one larger data center. A data center is a facility that houses computers and associated equipment intended to provide internet connectivity, email, web hosting, file storage, database management, etc.
Virtualization is the use of a virtual machine monitor (VMM), which presents a consistent interface between guest operating system and underlying host hardware. A VMM provides all the facilities necessary to run multiple instances of an operating system, such as a server, on a physical host computer.
5. Software Defined Networking (SDN)
Software defined networking (SDN) is a network architecture where control of the network switches and routers is decoupled from the configuration of these devices. SDN enables centralized network administration while still maintaining the ability to scale out and scale in.
Openstack is an open-source cloud computing platform based on Linux. It was developed by Rackspace Hosting Inc. and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Openstack is free and open-source software released under the Apache License 2.0.
7. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)
Service oriented architectures (SOAs) are distributed computing models that enable organizations to build applications by assembling reusable building blocks that communicate with each other via well-defined interfaces. SOAs are composed of services that are loosely coupled and self-contained.
