The question can be answered similarly to "Why do I need a printer?" The answer: "It's easier, faster and better than writing by hand." It's the same with data center connectivity management. Here, key questions are answered such as, "Where does my RJ45 cable go?", "Which ports on my patch panel are reserved, occupied, free or go to the next building?", "Is the installed fiber cable an OM3 or an OM4 and does it belong in a SAN or in an IP network?" With Datacenter Connectivity Management, you have end-to-end control of your network without going through complicated documentation or trying to remember the standard.
