FNT Software: Learn How to Run Your Data Center as a Business
Nov. 16, 2015 — The world around us is being digitized, driven by social networking, more mobile devices, cloud technologies, and an explosion in big data. The business community and society as a whole are constantly changing their needs, expectations, and behaviors.
IT is being forced to evolve alongside the old business models. IT managers must evolve into IT service providers who can run their own infrastructures and maximize operational efficiency. Operators must be able to plan their IT, network, and physical infrastructure in detail and maintain full transparency across all data center assets.

IT analysts and ITSM professionals agree that this combination will become a key discipline for IT and data center managers who want to tailor their resources quickly and cost-efficiently to actual business needs.
