Computing equipement : all our advice

Your IT assets require constant monitoring and vigilance: after all, they are your best efficiency tool.

A well thought-out management of your equipment allows you to prevent failures, reduce operating costs and ensure its longevity. This is a crucial issue for your IT managers.

The Middeo Team met to determine the best practices to implement in order to optimize IT asset management. Here are the three conclusions we reached:

1. SET UP YOUR CMDB

The CMDB (or "Configuration Management Data Base") is an essential element in the optimization of your critical equipment.
It allows you to set up a database listing all the elements that make up your computer equipment, including :

• Printers
• Keyboard and mouse
• Computers
• Software and licences

This database gathers all the technical, administrative and financial information of your IT infrastructure. It allows you, for example, to report on the management of your services, to anticipate the obsolescence of your fleet or to analyze the impact of an incident involving damaged equipment.

2. STANDARDIZE YOUR SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE

Standardizing software and hardware may seem obvious in this day and age, but many companies still use heterogeneous hardware and software.
Reducing the number of different hardware and software devices will allow you to gain efficiencies in deployment and maintenance: with fewer updates to perform, fewer failures due to incompatibility and less testing to perform.
It also means that each member of your team will no longer be able to use their own hardware or favorite programs. Don't hesitate to communicate about the upcoming changes and be available if you have any doubts or questions, so that your whole team understands the value of switching to new hardware.

3. AUTOMATE YOUR INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Many routine operations can be automated to increase efficiency, such as:

• Software updates
• Their deployment on new posts
• Restarting your servers
• … and much more !

So is this a threat to your company's IT workforce? Nothing could be further from the truth. According to a Baseline magazine survey, only 7% of them would consider automation tools as a danger to their business. This automation allows them to free themselves from repetitive and low-value-added tasks, so they can focus on the most interesting activities of their business.
