Enterprise Management Software - Doing Some Good

Do some good! This is what I ask of Enterprise Management Software (EMS) and its vendors. Is it possible? What good comes from an EMS? Is it good for business? Is it good for the vendor? Is it good for both? Read and decide.

What is enterprise management software?
What is enterprise management software? Enterprise management software is responsible for the “check engine” light displayed in your car’s dashboard whenever there is a problem. Enterprise management software in the IT world delivers a “check segment” indicator to the network manager’s “dashboard” when there is a network fault or an “unable to process invoices ” indicator to the finance manager’s email inbox. Enterprise management software provides operational information to enable timely decisions that affect business processes. Just as the “check engine light” indicates a fault later diagnosed by a mechanic, EMS indicates a fault diagnosed by someone in IT. Both the “check engine light” and enterprise management software indicate a problem – the decision to act (now or later) is yours.
