Information technology presents unique challenges, which simply do not exist in other parts of our lives.  For example: Can you imagine placing different manufactures and tires sizes on your vehicle?  How about a different door handle and lock for each room in your home?  Of course not, the performance of our vehicle would suffer, and key management in our home would become a daunting task.  Now let’s merge the rate of emerging technology with the longevity and cost of technology, and we have the perfect challenge:  How do we effectively manage an IT infrastructure?
