For any sized company or government agency, the rapidly expanding implementation of today’s technology creates unique and critical business challenges. Information Technology (IT) infrastructure management – not to be confused with the broad responsibilities of IT management – is the administration and management of essential operational elements to effectively, efficiently, and proactively utilize technology, information, and data. These elements include the computers, servers, networking, data, storage, physical and virtual facilities as well as software, processes, policies, staffing, training, security, mobile and virtual functionality, and cloud-based services that make up the IT infrastructure. Overall, IT infrastructure management is closely aligned with overall corporate operations, strategies, and goals.
