Servers remain the core of IT operations – regardless if they are implemented rather traditionally or in a wider network of hybrid IT environments or as part of converged and hyper-converged infrastructures. In fact, until you get to a continuous and daily operation, there are several factors that play a role in the planning and rollout phase of IT environment refreshes. However, this is not the end of the story, since operation can easily cause some major headaches.
Not only can configuration and planning be a huge obstacle once the vendor fails to deliver accordingly, in addition, operation and administration can be a problem. If a maintenance case then arises, there you have simply no time or resources left to invest in strategic IT projects.
Although it is often not necessary to place these burdens on IT staff, this is something that happens frequently, driving costs sky high.
Ultimately, your IT staff is faced with a great deal of planning, extensive rollout phases and tons of paper to wade through to get everything up and running. At the same time, users sit around, barely able to carry out their daily routines and jobs effectively. Customers cannot be served and the numbers drop.
