Infrastructure Management made easy – a Twilight Recap

Intergen does Infrastructure Management – we have for a while and we’ll keep right on doing it! This Twilight session gave insight into the Microsoft System Center Suite and explained why this is such an important platform for business, especially in this day and age.

Twilight Seminar - Infrastructure Management made easy

Intergen’s Infrastructure Consulting Manager Mark Fenwick and Infrastructure Consultant Andrew Kosmadakis gave their experience and insight into Infrastructure Management and how the Microsoft System Center Suite helps businesses manage the dynamic environments we operate in today.

Mark and Andrew emphasised how cloud technologies play an imperative role in developing and managing an Infrastructure platform, as it allows users to become more dynamic by using only what they need, when they need it.

It is becoming more apparent that our workplaces aren’t just ‘standard offices’ any more. With the technology of today – both at work and at home – shaping our expectations, there is more pressure from users to have a dynamic desktop at work. Many individuals now need the flexibility to work from home, on site or on the run. Using multiple platforms such as laptops, desktops, mobile devices and tablets is something that is becoming more and more commonplace.

Nowadays, with the multiplicity of  platforms available to users, organisations need the right Infrastructure Management toolset or they run the risk of the outside world having access to information and things they shouldn’t. As Andrew and Mark point out, these problems can get even stickier, for example when businesses refuse to let workers have access to work resources via their personal laptops and devices.

The Microsoft System Center Suite gives businesses the flexibility to work and use resources anytime, anywhere. It also offers the  customisation capabilities you need to allow you to create access to your resources (to certain people) no matter where they are.

The transition from the physical servers of the traditional datacentre to cloud based rechnologies is here and businesses need to gear themselves towards this and understand the many options and scenarios available. The Microsoft System Center suite provides a common toolset to manage your infrastructure no matter where you are at in this transition.

Andrew and Mark’s presentations slides are below.

This week our Twilight Seminar is “SharePoint Extended” which looks into how to make your content, document and records management “easy”.

Twilight Sessions are a great way to end the day, giving you a chance to sit back and relax while our technology experts give you a run down on what’s happening in the technology space. We look forward to seeing you there!
