What are IT documentations needed for?
Documenting a network environment is often a complicated and time-consuming task. Nevertheless, it is not only unavoidable for administrators who need an overview of the company's IT structure. It's not just about maintaining device and software directories in lists. The visual representation of the IT landscape in plans and diagrams is much more meaningful, as it shows the company's network structure with its dependencies at a glance. Pictures say more than lists. IT diagrams are therefore also required, for example, for certification (ISO) and IT baseline protection.
Create IT diagrams automatically
Programs that enable largely automatic generation of IT diagrams from the stored device data and connections offer enormous relief. An essential diagram is, for example, the topology plan: This documents which network components (eg switches) the computers, servers and network printers are connected to and how the network nodes are related to one another.
Asset.Desk offers the automatic creation of IT diagrams including export to Microsoft Visio or as a PDF with the module "visual network".
