Hybrid Digital Infrastructure Management (HDIM)


For organizations seeking robust infrastructure management solutions, finding a balance between speed, cost, capacity, dependability, security, and compliance is becoming ever more complex

The global research and analysis firm lists several other trends including: Infrastructure is everywhere & so is your data; the overwhelming impact of IOT, distributed cloud, immersive experience, democratization of IT, networking — what’s next? and Hybrid Digital Infrastructure Management (HDIM)

Most organizations are automating to some level, in many cases attempting to refocus staff on higher-value tasks. However, automation investments are often made without an overall automation strategy in mind. Organizations are left potentially exposed when their heritage Disaster Recovery (DR) plans designed for traditional systems have not been reviewed with new hybrid infrastructures in mind. Resilience requirements must be evaluated at design stages rather than treated as an afterthought two years after deployment.

The vast majority of organizations that do not adopt a shared self-service platform approach will find that their DevOps initiatives simply do not scale. Adopting a shared platform approach enables product teams to draw from an I&O digital toolbox of possibilities, while benefiting from high standards of governance and efficiency needed for scale

Companies are opting for hybrid IT, and more IT professionals are likely to take this approach in the future. However, the increasing level of hybrid IT deepens complexity while making monitoring and visibility more of a challenge. What is the future for infrastructure? However, connected infrastructure won’t be enough the counter the complexities caused by hybrid IT. So how will IT professionals and data managers adapt? A new category being talked about is hybrid digital infrastructure management (HDIM)

What is HDIM?

As hybrid IT comes into greater use, so will the challenges of infrastructure management. Vendors are already introducing a unified infrastructure management platform, but it’s predicted that they need to do more than this. Creating a HDIM toolset. This toolset should bring together insights from:

  • IT service management (ITSM)
  • Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and
  • Cloud management platforms (CMP)

Infrastructure and operations teams come together to review challenges and start work. This will help to create a more robust infrastructure that is ready for the inevitable complexities that hybrid IT will continue to bring.

How does it works?

The hardware probes tap physically into storage and network fibre connections, while software probes capture information from physical and virtualised devices in an agentless, non-intrusive manner. They ingest huge amounts of real-time data which is correlated, analysed and presented to IT operations and business managers in user-defined custom views on a single pane of glass.
