Automated Infrastructure Management Solutions Market Dynamics
The major factors driving the growth of the automated infrastructure management (AIM) solutions market are the rising advancement in IT infrastructure and growing demand of superior connectivity across data centers. However, lack of trained professionals and high installation cost is hindering the market growth. Although, growing IT spending is creating an opportunity in the automated infrastructure management solutions market.
Although today most of the building network infrastructure is managed by the IT connectivity, around 90 percent of the IT networks are still documented by manual tools such as spreadsheets. These spreadsheets are difficult to create and manage as it may contain human error of around 10 percent. This manual monitoring and management of huge number of connection are inefficient and expensive. To overcome this challenge, many of the IT managers and facility staffs are adopting the advanced automated infrastructure management solutions. This solution automatically manages and monitors all the documents, its location and status of the connected assets. The use of traditional solution by an enterprise IT department requires an average of six hours per month for auditing the network assets such as printers and PCs manually. The use of automated infrastructure solution offers an automatic and continuous update to the changes made in the connected devices thereby helping the businesses save those non-productive hours. This growing need for accurate and automated infrastructure management integrated with the scope and capabilities of the upgraded AIM solutions has fueled the adoption of the AIM in efficient and connected infrastructure.
Despite the growth and rise in the global automated infrastructure management (AIM) solutions market, some factors hinder the market growth rate throughout the world.
