Modern data centers are more complex, distributed, and difficult to manage than ever before. This is true not just for the physical data center infrastructure, but also for the software tools used to manage it.
Today’s data center managers often find themselves performing swivel chair management in which they must use disparate systems to manage their data center operations.
The most common pain points of having unintegrated data center management tools are:
- Data inaccuracy. When data needs to be manually entered into multiple systems, there is an increased likelihood that human error will lead to incorrect data in one or both tools.
- Reduced productivity. The manual effort of dual entry is time-consuming and takes resources away from other more productive tasks.
- Cross-functional silos. Functional blockages may lead to teams only having access to the data in their specific tools. This leads to a lack of data sharing and collaboration that enables the most informed decisions
To overcome these challenges, data center managers must create a single source of truth.
In this eBook, we’ll explore how leading organizations are integrating modern CMDB and data center management tools to drive automation, boost productivity, and increase the accuracy of their data.
