Adds, moves and changes in the data center require re-patching. Network documentation is essential to enable a comprehensive overview and offers starting points if failures or problems occur, or special upgrades have to be imported. Equally important: the documentation also helps to identify possible risks in the event of planned changes or extensions to the network infrastructure. Misplaced patches can lead to interruptions in active data transmission and thus to data loss, which can be cost-intensive for the company.
