Overview

Your end users must have access to the applications and services they need to do their jobs. Any disruption to your operations and ability to deliver those services can have serious consequences. You need IT automation tools and best practices to design, implement, and improve the processes that control and manage your applications and infrastructure. These solutions can quickly identify, isolate, and eliminate problems within your technology environment, and improve service levels to your business.
To automate and improve IT operations management, look for IT service management solutions that address:
  • Change and configuration management–Reduce risk by improving your ability to plan, implement, and manage changes within your IT environment
  • Consolidated service desk–Decrease time to resolve service outages by automating your incident, request, problem, and service level management processes
