Do a Critical Infrastructure Audit

With more time on their hands and free of vendor meetings for case-by-case problem solving, IT leaders can quickly and accurately assess what is going on with their systems. Through no fault of their own, they may have forgotten about hidden legacy components in the IT environment. A comprehensive audit requires taking a step away from the rigors of daily monitoring and assessing the entirety of your systems to benchmark end-to-end performance and plan upgrades and improvements. To do this successfully, the critical audit must be easy to implement and not impact system performance.

IT infrastructures are growing increasingly complex; this idea is nothing new. There are well-known reasons behind this, including more end users, expanding data volume across more devices, and a multitude of customer-facing applications and systems. Businesses are trying to leverage a combination of virtualization and cloud environments to gain the right level of flexibility, efficiency and speed, but the roadmap is also creating IT management headaches.

As organizations attempt to strike the proper balance between new and developing technologies, they come across fresh obstacles at every turn. Which application workloads belong in which environments? What kind of experience will this change result in for my customers? How can I ensure my IT performance teams are reaching maximum productivity with minimum troubleshooting? These are questions that only become more difficult to answer as heterogeneous application infrastructures take shape. John Gentry, vice president of marketing and alliances, Virtual Instruments, has identified five challenges and tips that are crucial for organizations to consider as they work to guarantee optimal output.
