IBM announced Infrastructure Management Assessment Services, a new portfolio of services that help customers design a blueprint for simplifying and increasing the efficiency and reliability of their IT operations. Based on IBM's decade of expertise operating hundreds of data centers worldwide, the services help customers develop a framework for their IT operations based on open industry standards that can allow many labor-intensive data center operations to be automated.

To achieve such efficiencies, the services help customers define the technical and business requirements designed to enable improvements in server, storage and network utilization, standardize their computing environment and assess their security needs using automation software and processes perfected by IBM. The assessment services also help customers prepare their IT environments to incorporate such emerging capabilities as automated provisioning, autonomic computing and business systems monitoring.
