Remote Infrastructure Management, commonly known as (RIM), is the remote management of the IT infrastructure of a company, such as its workstations (desktop PCs, laptops, notebooks), communications and networking hardware and software, as well as applications, by a service provider. Remote Monitoring and Management is undertaken through global delivery centers, where skilled staff monitor and manage the infrastructure, ensuring uptimes and availability
