It’s no secret that technology is changing every year and at rapid speed. It is IT’s job to monitor, analyze, and sort through the complexities to make sense of it all in order to help inform critical business decisions. In the following paragraphs, we’ll discuss 4 Common IT Infrastructure Challenges, along with suggested methods to help you deal with those issues.
Limited Legacy Tools
It is not unusual for a business to advance so quickly that a legacy IT tool or system cannot keep up with the changes. Older legacy infrastructures contain silos which are simply not equipped with advanced analytics and business insights. Recognizing and addressing these legacy issues from the start will allow your business to be proactive and optimize operational efficiency to drive future growth.
The truth is for a business to stay competitive in today’s market they need to embrace new technology and upgrade their infrastructure as needed. Additionally, it’s critical for businesses to keep staff up to date with annual technical reviews and training sessions geared toward advances in new technology.
Too Many Monitoring Tools
IT logs and data provide valuable insights into the health of a network and its infrastructure, but you have to be able to monitor and analyze the data efficiently to be helpful. Most companies today are plagued with data overload—too much data coming from too many siloed sources. If you have separate monitoring solutions for each part of your IT infrastructure, it will be challenging to get a clear and complete picture of the health of your business.
Instead, consider a single, centralized monitoring system that aggregates data from multiple sources and across platforms and systems to streamline operations and help IT staff stay better informed on the performance of the entire infrastructure.
IT infrastructure management is a balancing act. While infrastructure monitoring may indicate that the IT infrastructure needs expansion, excessive consumption of resources can rebound in a dreadful way when the need is no longer there or usage wanes. However, infrastructure monitoring software is available with scaling capacity built-in to help IT teams intelligently respond to unfolding infrastructure demands and efficiently allocate resources as needed.
Slow Manual Processes
It is not always easy to move from traditional ways of doing things to more efficient ways. If your company still relies on manual process to run your IT infrastructure, you are slowing down the process. Automated software with AI and machine learning capabilities are better suited to handle a company’s complex IT needs. These automated and intelligently designed solutions not only eliminate manual work and create operational efficiency, they also free up your workers to do what they do best: growing your business.
