Asset Management

OpenData Asset Management Module

Beyond spreadsheets or using cumbersome CMDB implementations to manage data center infrastructure, the OpenData Asset Management Module was designed specifically to address the documentation and management requirements of data center facilities infrastructure and the IT equipment it supports.

This Module perfectly compliments the OpenData data collection and monitoring functionality by allowing users to instantly identify and locate equipment that is about to exceed established performance thresholds, to avoid unscheduled down-time, improve MTTR, and mitigate operational risks.t

Advantages
