IT Infrastructure Management
A stable and robust Information technology (IT) infrastructure is vital for business success. Many core business processes and procedures rely on IT infrastructure and software applications that work in unison to enable faster and better decisions and new product offerings. Efficient IT infrastructure management finds and leverages synergies to ensure desired business outcomes are realized.
What is IT Infrastructure Management?
IT infrastructure encompasses all elements that support the usability and management of data and information in a company. This includes physical hardware as well as equipment, network systems, data storage and retrieval, software and legacy interfaces.
IT infrastructure management is the coordination and operation of the IT infrastructure. Specifically, the planning, documentation, and administration of all related assets including servers, processes, mobile and virtual functions, networks, software and data.
Efficient IT infrastructure management makes it easier to keep all IT infrastructure components up and running. This, in turn, contributes to greater productivity, which ultimately results in improved employee and customer satisfaction. With the stakes this high, the right management tool is essential to facilitate your enterprise IT’s work.
Who needs an IT Infrastructure Management Tool?
An IT infrastructure management tool helps companies across all industries make IT infrastructure more efficient. The right software solution will deliver transparency, shorter downtimes and easier planning – all of which are required to achieve an organization’s goals.
Many industries, such as telecommunications, energy suppliers, public transport, airports, data centers, car manufacturers and hospitals, already use an intelligent IT infrastructure management solution. Businesses in these sectors have complex IT-based process flows that must run uninterrupted, and they must deliver services without fail. With the stakes this high, the solution used to manage the IT infrastructure matters.

Actions data center and network operators can take today for a more environmental-friendly tomorrow
Businesses concerned about sustainability are taking stock of their current situation, identifying areas to target for improvement, and formulating plans for how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. There are many strategies that can be used, and not all of them are obvious. This paper is an enlightening look at a number of different actions businesses can take to minimize the impact they are having on the environment.
Best Practices for Implementation
Physical IT infrastructure resources and assets form the basis for all IT services and are thus fundamental for business success. Managing cables, servers, and switches has always been a complex challenge but digital transformation and its consequences now make deployment of specialist tools a prerequisite for efficient management. Many rollouts of such tools fail for various reasons, e. g., the strategy, choice of tool, goals, or data collection. The result is that solutions are either not used at all or not used effectively. In this white paper, we discuss the most common issues encountered when implementing IT infrastructure management tools and how to avoid them.
Worst Practices from the real world of IT Infrastructure Management
IT managers were surprised just how much power the air conditioning system was using – shortly afterwards, the data center was on fire; a server rack ran for years without a network connection and the IT documentation consisted of needles and thread. Those aren’t horror stories from a movie script, they actually happened. We’ve put together some unbelievable, amusing, and instructional case studies that we’ve been “fortunate” enough to encounter ourselves.
ServiceNow and FNT Command each offer many ways to optimize processes. The full potential can only be achieved by integrating them. To ensure processes run smoothly, a large amount of IT infrastructure information needs to be collected, compared, processed, and made available for service management. Easy, fast access to this infrastructure data in the background boosts the stability, performance, and flexibility of (service-related) processes. Connecting these two systems therefore makes sense.
How to take IT infrastructure into the hybrid future
Digital transformation depends on IT infrastructure. However, the underpinnings needed for connecting people, machines, information, and applications are under extreme pressure in the face of demands that seem difficult to reconcile. Fast and economical, flexible and stable, open and secure – it has long become impossible to fulfil the requirements with manual processes and isolated tools. Only future-proof IT infrastructure management can create the right conditions for close cooperation between IT and business and achieving shared success.
The Holistic Network Management Solution
Companies are faced with increasing data volumes rapidly growing networking. As a result, the digital infrastructure is becoming increasingly complex. Not only is the complexity of the network infrastructure is growing, but so are the demands placed on it. Ensuring fault-free functioning is more important than ever. Failures of individual devices or services can quickly cause serious problems and high costs. For this reason, keeping track of the complex IT, network and device infrastructure is key. In this white paper, you will learn from two real-life examples how companies can achieve holistic network management through the combined use of the FNT Command Platform and Stable-Net.
Case Studies and Best Practices
Full transparency into IT infrastructure is the starting point for ongoing and successful transformation. Automotive manufacturers and industrial companies need a stable foundation to address current market challenges around change, realignment, and consolidation. In terms of IT, this means that documentation of requirements, IT assets, and their dependencies must be standardized, with the process being largely automated and seamlessly integrated into the IT value chain. In this white paper, we present concrete use cases to show what a future-proof solution for documentation and management of IT assets in manufacturing industry can achieve across the entire lifecycle.
IT Documentation Provides Infrastructure Basis for Expansion Plans
Carl Zeiss AG is an international leader in the development and manufacture of optics and optoelectronics. Flawless IT infrastructure is business-critical for the company; production operations in its factories must be totally reliable. To achieve this, IT staff require a comprehensive overview of the infrastructure at all times and across all sites, enabling them to locate and rectify any faults without delay. Seamless documentation of physical components is thus of crucial importance for the company. ZEISS relies on the cloud-based FNT Command Platform solution for this purpose.
IT Documentation Provides Infrastructure Basis for Expansion Plans
Stuttgart Airport is one of Germany’s biggest airports. It links to long-distance rail and bus services, and the city’s subway network. All are increasingly making it an inter- modal hub for travelers. Alongside its core aviation business, Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH also operates numerous infrastructure facilities that provide more than 250 B2B customers with power, water, and information and communications technology. These customers account for some 40 percent of its total revenues.
