IT infrastructure is becoming more and more complex with the introduction of new technologies. Companies embrace new tools and solutions, but they do not stop there. They try to squeeze these new technologies into the way they operate their IT environment. In some cases, they look at these new technologies as standalone applications that don’t need additional support from existing IT processes and tools. In some cases, it may work, but in many other cases, it creates more harm than good. Servicenow consulting allows you to take into account future demands and changes in infrastructure character.

You Don’t Have a Single Source of Truth for IT Infrastructure Operations
Every company has a unique Information Technology (IT) environment. This environment is made up of many interacting parts and pieces. If you are the equivalent of an IT Architect, Technical Director, or even an IT Manager, you may already know that keeping track of your infrastructure is challenging. Especially if you don’t have “a single source of truth.” What’s that mean? It means that someone needs to take all the information you have and consolidate it into a single place where it can be easily accessed at any moment by anyone in your organization who needs it. That’s what a single source of truth entails. And to do all this while also managing costs.
You have too many applications and tools to access
If you haven’t already heard, the modern data center is being transformed by a wide range of factors. Cloud tech is just one of them. For example, every company from Google to your neighborhood dentist has invested heavily in software as a service (SaaS) offerings. In some cases, this has meant commercial and enterprise businesses are using the same tech tools. But, while many clouds and SaaS applications offer greater flexibility and scalability, not all services are created equal or without complications.
Too much time is spent on manual tasks
There are seven billion people on this planet and every one of them has a unique story to tell. The same can be said for your IT infrastructure. I get it, though, you have some hectic schedules to keep up with, and dealing with employee firings takes more time than you have these days. But if your overworked staff can’t keep up with the demands of your business then what choice do you have but to find ways of automating those manual tasks? There is so much to gain from automating your daily IT tasks. You see, technology is ever-evolving, and integrating the use of a variety of applications is crucial in maintaining a healthy and efficient infrastructure.
IT Infrastructure operations are not aligned with business goals.
Businesses today depend on their IT infrastructure to make sure they can consistently deliver services and products to their customers. The IT infrastructure of a business is made up of the physical elements that are necessary for keeping things running. These include servers, data storage devices, network equipment, computers, and software among other things. The business resources are usually linked together through a series of computer networks in both private- and public-sector organizations. A lot of people like to use the term “backbone” when describing it. If a disturbance or dysfunction occurs in any part of the system, then you have all it takes to bring down the entire system.
