Sponsored by ComputerWeekly.com
Are Facilities and IT data centre managers implacable enemies, or is it just a need for different priorities and emphases on work that seem to get in the way? Often, Quocirca finds that an organisation has one team – facilities management (FM) – looking after the physical facility of the data centre, with another – information technology (IT) – looking after the servers, storage and network equipment, along with the software running within it. This can lead to problems where priorities clash, or where a lack of common language or views of a problem can stop things from happening.
