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.

The Ugly Break Up: Time for Your Apps to Part

April 09, 2012 09:00 AM
The marketing is there, and has been for some time. Buzzwords have been coined and your interest is piqued. You sat back long enough to see if this was just vaporware or real, while gaseous. Cloud turns out to be more solid than its nomenclature. You’re ready, in fact you’re all in. Now the bad news: If you want to succeed in the cloud, the long-term relationship you've had with your apps must be broken up.

Learning To Be A Twit

March 22, 2011 07:00 AM
I've been through my share of help desk implementations over the years. I've sat in on a fair number of process improvement teams, and have either helped to ring in new ways of doing things or suffered through other people's ideas of what network and customer support should feel like. It's just part of the game when you work in IT and you care about helping to keep the organization at the top of its support game. So why was was I taken aback when I found out that users were tweeting their beefs with my network to anyone within Twittershot? Why was I floored to learn how many companies have adopted social media as part of their support structure? How did I miss the moving of the cheese, and what rock have I been living under?

Spares Beat Service Contracts Hands Down

December 23, 2010 09:20 AM
I'm sometimes amazed at how much of my clients' IT budgets go to pay for service and support contracts they don't really need. Too many IT guys can only sleep soundly under the security blanket provided by a 24-7 service contract with guaranteed four-hour response times, so they just have the vendor include gold-plated service on everything they buy. I've found that, in many cases, a few spares and next business-day service can save my clients a bundle.
