Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

That's especially true for IT pros; the technologies and skills necessary to succeed are constantly evolving, perhaps more so than in most industries. So what should you be thinking about now? We asked IT recruiter Paul DeBettignies, head of Minnesota Headhunter, for his take on some of the top hiring trends on both sides of the interview table.

1. Social Media Profiles Aren't A Fad.

The use of social sites like LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook by recruiters isn't new. But it has intensified of late, acccording to DeBettignies, as skilled IT talent has become tougher to find. Yes, updated social profiles will lead to more unsolicited -- and sometimes unwanted -- interest from recruiters and hiring managers. But it will help cut down on irrelevant inquiries, too.

"IT pros could help themselves if their LinkedIn profiles are complete and their Twitter bio says, "Minneapolis, MN" and "Software Engineer" or ".Net Developer," DeBettignies said by way of example. "While this will may lead to more inquiries from recruiters it also may weed out the unnecessary ones."
