This month, Hitachi Data Systems introduce a new product, IT Operations Director, under their IT Operations umbrella and here we provide an introduction and overview of this latest release.
IT Operations Director is a product that is focused on simply and effectively providing an intuitive and integrated way for an organization to manage and administer the following three aspects:
Security management – something which IT departments within every organization spend a substantial amount of time and money on, IT Operations Director aims to reduce both of these by providing the organization with the ability to do everything from trace user data and user activity to blocking the use of unauthorised external devices, such as USB drives.
Asset management – by utilizing IT Operations Director, an organization can effectively manage what can be a particularly substantial list of software licenses, allowing the company to, amongst other features, keep on top of software license compliance and be able to plan future license purchases.
Software distribution -for organizations who currently update software on user PCs on a manual, one-to-one basis, IT Operations Director can drastically reduce the amount of time spent on this by allowing for updates to be ran on any number of PCs from one central location.
Aimed at businesses of all sizes, IT Operations Director will integrate seamlessly into any organization where there is a need to manage IT systems in a way that is both cost-effective and efficient.
Due to the software being a fully integrated product, the need for additional modules is removed, ensuring that the product really is a cost-effective way to administer and manage various aspects of the organization’s IT systems.
As with previous releases under the IT Operations umbrella, IT Operations Director is particularly simple to download and due to its intuitive user interface, is easy to learn and become familiar with.
In addition, the software also has the same fantastic feature as IT Operations Analyzer and can be downloaded for a completely free 30 day trial.
What’s more, should the software wish to be purchased, there is no need to reinstall a paid version and the relevant license simply needs to be purchased.
With support available around the clock and an exhaustive list of benefits to any organization with growing or established IT systems, IT Operations Director is a fantastic product that offers a cost-effective and efficient way to administer an organization’s security management, asset management and software distribution.
