"The reality is different. Technologies such as virtualization, distributed computing services, cloud computing and the ever-growing SaaS actually can make operations seem more complex and out of control, especially as agencies plug new services and machines into their networks. Thats why its important to build systems management plans into every part of a network and into an organization's applications and servers."

System consolidation and spiraling complexity are the catalysts that are starting to make infrastructure management an actual subscription utility, and this is especially true for government IT operations."
