The IT Profit Centre: Delivering Measurable Value to the Business Through Better IT Management
The day-to-day job of fixing recurring problems with all the network end-points that constitute a business's IT infrastructure, whether they are in the data centre, the office or out in the field, can make the lives of those in the IT department a repetitive grind. How can they get out of this break/fix cycle to the sunny uplands of creating new value for the users they serve? The answer lies in having the management tools to automate repetitive tasks and pre-empt problems. However, the value of end-point management tools goes well beyond this. They also allow the value of IT services to be quantified and for this to be reported to lines-of-business.
