Best Practices in Systems Management - Buffalo

Building scale and quality, while controlling costs, can be a “hard-to-reach goal” for IT departments that still install and maintain their computing infrastructure one system at a time – the same way that automobile manufacturers built cars back in the early 1900’s: a specialized resource builds the machine and then it is manually maintained by an expert or series of experts, on a go-forward basis. For years now, leading product manufacturing firms have implemented mass production and customization approaches, while embracing quality management and continuous improvement techniques to deliver incredible economies of scale, predictable quality at an economically viable cost. IT departments can take a similar approach to managing their fleet of deployed computer systems …and, they can realize similar benefits by doing so.
