Navigating the Changing Landscape of Systems Management
Global Positioning Systems (GPS) have their roots as far back as the 1960’s when first developed by the United State’s Department of Defense to provide a navigation system to coordinate the movement of troops and supplies. Today this same technology is found in cars, cell phones, and even dog collars. The ubiquity of these devices has propelled market leader Garmin’s stock to outpace that of Google, Oracle, Cisco, Microsoft and Exxon in 2006 and 2007 and delivered a consumer friendly device on which millions now rely across the globe to assist them in their daily lives.
So what’s the link between the evolution of the GPS and system management?
Like the GPS before it, early systems management products were initially restricted to a small subset of very large enterprises who could afford the costly, complicated and poorly integrated packages. Modern technology and appliance-based packaging is now taking the systems management market by storm. Ease-of-use has improved, deployment times have been reduced and powerful management capabilities are now reaching companies of all sizes.
The KBOX system management appliances continue to “wow” system administrators with unprecedented ease-of-use and affordability. What initially revolutionized systems management in the mid-sized enterprise is now drawing attention from larger and larger organizations worldwide – it seems that easy-to-use, affordable, comprehensive systems management just makes good sense regardless of company size.
