Domain management with UCS

Economic operation and flexible management of IT infrastructure

Challenge

Nowadays, organisations expect the management of IT infrastructure, comprising locations, computer workplaces, mobile devices, printers plus the user and rights management, to function easily and reliably without involving considerable administrative efforts. In addition, it must be simple to integrate existing and new systems in order to guarantee flexibility towards new challenges in the future.

However, many organisations often find themselves faced with too high costs and efforts. At the same time, the existing solutions prove expensive, inflexible, complicated to operate and only allow the integration of new systems with great difficulty.

Hence, important requirements for IT management solutions are:

  • Reliable and stable function
  • Simple to operate
  • Flexible adaption and expansion possibilities
  • Compatibility with established technologies
  • Comprehensive support of open standards
  • Cost-effectiveness and efficiency
