As the world becomes more connected, the complexity of information technology is expanding. Information workers rely on an expanding number of technologies to collaborate: email, instant messaging, web forums, and wikis. Organizations that at one time relied solely on paper are becoming more dependent on information systems. In addition there is an increase in network-enabled devices including security systems, building environmental controls, power meters, and more. IT administrative staffers are responsible for a growing number of services and the IT fabric used by organizations is continuing to become more intricate.
The way we develop technology is also changing. Highly skilled programmers once wrote their code secretly behind closed doors. This is the old way of doing things Today millions of people develop, distribute, and use open-source software that is produced collaboratively over the Internet. The new model thrives on user input and collaboration. It enables the users of software to take control and become produces of technology the barrier for participation has been lowered.
The trends of open source software use and a growing complexity in information technology have lead to the perfect storm for the adoption of open source systems management. It's no longer good enough to have tools that are purpose-built. It's just as important to have management tools that are easy to deploy, easy to use, and easy to integrate with existing systems. This presents an opportunity for system and network administrators to deploy open source systems management tools that can be adapted to an ever-changing environment.
