In an organization, any issues or downtime in the IT infrastructure can lead to a huge loss in productivity and in turn affect the revenues. Global companies can lose precious time and money due to inefficient management of the IT infrastructure. With growing worldwide networks and complex environments there is an increased threat to security breaches.
IT infrastructure is a broad field that contains different components such as network and security structure, storage and servers, business applications, operating systems, as well as databases. Some of the core components need careful management, which is often challenging for organizations. It is the need of the hour to develop responsive systems and bridge the gaps between business and operations.
Challenges & Their Solutions
Most of the global tech analysts understand that there are several challenges related to IT infrastructure that the companies face. The main challenges are regarding computing platforms, data acquisition, compute provisioning and management, data storage architectures, data analytics, and networks and communication. We have listed some of the top infrastructure management challenges that your organization may face in the future and their probable solutions –
1. Lack of Powerful Computing Platforms
Challenge – The major challenge in the growing processing power of computers has been the lack of energy and space to power supercomputers. IT managers have always been on the lookout for better and faster systems which will help in the faster processing of the large amounts of data available today.
Solution – A simple solution to this challenge would be to employ new general-purpose graphical processors or multi-core platforms. By using better systems, the existing software will have to be optimized and adjusted to provide the best results. Many projects have been started to develop faster computers which will be available at low costs and energy needs.
2.Data Acquisition Problems
Challenge – Firewalls that protect emails, applications, and web browsing can cause important packet losses in the TCP/IP networks. This can result in important data loss and reduce network speeds considerably, making online collaboration impossible. Similar losses can occur due to the switches and routers which do not have the required high-speed memory.
Solution – IT managers need to look out for high-performance computing resources with huge data sets and a secure bridge to collaborate with dispersed scientific teams. They will also need to employ more sophisticated means to collect, filter, and store using high-speed networks.
3. Improper Networks and Connectivity
Challenge – For any organization to work smoothly, it is important that there is a good and reliable network in place. Without a reliable network connection, IT infrastructure management can be a difficult task for any IT manager of the organization. New software-based methods and network architecture design are required for the optimization of data.
Solution – The ability to migrate the IP address would help to allow application services to be migrated to other hardware. Another solution to this challenge would be to add intelligence to the wired as well as Wi-Fi network connections. This will help the networks to optimize the traffic delivery to contain costs and improve the service.
