Definition of element management:

Element management tools are the control consoles and utilities used by operations and infrastructure staff.

The common characteristic of such tools is their support for the most detailed non-programming work in IT management:

  • network administration
  • database administration
  • middleware administration
  • storage administration
  • operations management (where not otherwise covered)
  • and so forth

Element management tools represent important sources of information and visibility into complex IT operations, including resource unit costs, and the ability to integrate them is desirable.
