IT Infrastructure Management

So, what is IT Infrastructure Management?

IT infrastructure management (IM) is the management of essential operation IT components, such as policies, processes, equipment, data, human resources, and external contacts, for overall effectiveness.

IT Infrastructure management is sometimes divided into categories of systems management, network management, and storage management.

Benefits

Although all business activities depend upon the infrastructure, planning and projects to ensure its effective management are typically undervalued to the detriment of the organization.

Investments in IT Infrastructure management have the largest single impact on an organization's revenue. Here is an IT Infrastructure Architecture Blueprint example.
