As Big Data guidelines dominate business and analytics, there has been a need to develop ways to manage the way digital systems work. As attention on the monitoring of the IT infrastructure dominates industries, many businesses have utilized a hodgepodge of software and approaches. Ironically, the more methods are utilized, the larger the chasms of inefficiency.

Fortunately for industry players, greater focus has been placed on the advancement of monitoring infrastructure which has paved the way to higher levels of automation.

Remote Management and Monitoring or RMM entails distance management of IT which encompasses all elements from services to computers, workstations, laptops and portable devices.

According to a Raritan Computer, Inc. white paper which looked at the role of RMM in infrastructure uptime, it’s estimated that IT downtime – depending on the company’s  level of operations – can cost as high as $14 million a minute in some verticals. With remote management tools, it’s reported that users have experienced a 92% reduction of labor costs and a considerable 66% reduction in time spent on troubleshooting.  

In addition, according to a 2006 Gartner study (via a NASSCOM report), infrastructure management services account for a whopping $524 billion annual. This trend towards remote delivery of services is due to the recognition that remote management offers a milieu of advantages.

RMM: The Future of Business Growth

RMM is a proactive solution for tracking your network’s health status. By using the system, you can enhance overall performance and have technical support staff address structural concerns in a better manner. Below are the core benefits that RMM can offer your business.

  1. Improve System Security – RMM ensures that networks are secure. While remote access may seem like it’s riddled with potential security threats, RMM provides for safeguards like encrypted authentication, customizable user access and, last but not least, real-time monitoring for security holes that may arise.
  2. Overcomes Geographical Boundaries – RMM is useful for networks that span multiple locations. This remote system allows your IT administrators to manage devices in various locations simultaneously.
  3. Round-The-Clock Monitoring – RMM provides you and your team the flexibility that this modern work environment requires and helps you enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your network is accessible and actionable.
  4. Productivity Enhancements – With a universal system, you can streamline the process for all MSPs and address IT issues with minimal downtime, if not proactively eliminating hiccups.
  5. Decreased Overhead Expenses – Companies of all sizes can minimize operational expenses by cutting down on real estate/ rental with transportation expenses. RMM creates a leaner time that retains only key personnel that can easily manage responsibilities aided by automated systems.

In summation, RMM is an effective administration tool for system managers. RMM is a must for any business, especially data centers, that is looking for solutions that will permit technical experts to manage and deploy maintenance responses within a cost-effective and efficient system.
