The popularity of the Cloud and Co-Lo (Co-location) has provided users with attractive cost effective solutions, however the downside is being the lack of control of the Small Comms rooms “The Edge” that remain on-site. These rooms are online 24 x 7 and usually unattended 24 x 7. We have also noticed that there is now a movement of computer hardware from the cloud back to end user on-premise facilities due to data risk/sovereignty as well as latency of service.
The traditional IT Management Control is no longer as stringent as in previous times & in fact many companies have now become I.T. People Poor. The need to identify where these rooms are located and in what condition is critical as they are the conduit to the outsource partner and can quickly impact your online position and company credibility if they experience failure. EFM provide a complete cost effective health check of these small rooms that will provide peace of mind to your business.
