Systems Management 101 - What is Systems Management 

Systems management is the administration of distributed computer systems in an Enterprise IT environment. Common systems management tasks include but are not limited to: monitoring status and health of systems, performing hardware inventory, updating drivers / firmware / BIOS, and power usage management.

Why use Systems Management Tools?

Systems management tools make a lot of sense to companies that have many computers. Tasks that are performed manually don't make sense once a company has a certain number of computer systems.

A couple of simple examples: if a major firmware update is released, IT Administrators don't want to physically walk to 100 different computers to perform the update.  They want to perform these updates automatically from a central location. Additionally, systems management tools allow companies to easily keep inventory of all of the computers they have and the type of hardware and versions of firmware installed on them.

Dell Systems Management tools can manage both physical and virtual machines remotely from anywhere in the world. Users can perform advanced tasks such as installing an operating system or configuring RAID from a remote location.
