Research and Markets: Virtual Systems Management (VSM) - Report Available Now
Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Virtual Systems Management (VSM) - The Emerging Virtualization Differentiator" report to their offering.

Virtualization deployments are exploding across all industries and enterprises, and despite origins in the mainframes of the 1960s, virtualization has proved to be a 21st century IT revolution, touching every aspect of enterprise computing. However, as with all major IT revolutions before it, virtualization has also introduced many new and difficult management challenges. Unfortunately, it is only after the initial exuberant deployments that more and more enterprises are finding that virtualization is in many ways more difficult to manage, and that traditional systems management tools are not up to the challenge. Skills and human resource issues are a key challenge, as enterprises find they do not have the skills they need to manage virtual infrastructure deployments. Complexity is also a core issue, as multiple platforms, technologies, and vendors increase complexity and reduce efficiency.

Add to this the immaturity of existing management tools, and the differences between traditional Enterprise Systems Management (ESM) and Virtual Systems Management (or VSM). These challenges are driving the need for more comprehensive, more robust Virtual Systems Management (or VSM) solutions. Use EMA research data, this Advisory Note investigates these key drivers and outcomes for Virtual Systems Management (or VSM), and provides advice on the key areas enterprises should address when looking at resolving key VSM requirements.
