Why You Need to Keep Track of Your IT Infrastructure

Why You Need to Keep Track of Your IT Infrastructure

When taking stock of your business assets, technology is particularly critical to pay attention to. Let’s discuss why this is and what you must do to manage it properly.

You Rely on Your IT Infrastructure, So Treat It as Such

There’s a lot that your IT enables you to accomplish every day—for most businesses, it’s the majority of their processes. This means that a lot is riding on your technology.

Resultantly, it needs more maintenance than just a scan here or an update there.

To properly take care of an IT infrastructure, there needs to be a comprehensive understanding of every component involved. You also need the tools required to keep track of these components and how well each is functioning—hardware and software alike—to ensure your productivity isn’t suspended needlessly.

As you do so, recorded documentation of your inventory can prove to be significantly valuable.

What Should Your Documentation Include?

Generally, it is a good idea to keep track of a few variables and details:

  • All network-attached devices, from the network infrastructure to every endpoint and peripheral
  • The date when each component on the network was added
  • How each device is configured
  • Every license your business holds, with their status
  • A comprehensive service history

Having this information at your disposal will enable your IT administrator—whether they’re a part of your in-house team or a part of an outsourced team like ours here at Virtual Business Solutions—to be more strategic about your IT infrastructure. This includes how you plan out your future investments as well.
