I'll give a hearty second to prewired patch panels.   Even with the best
cable management systems, patching directly into the switch is likely to
eventually get messy.   At least with the patch panels, even if cabling
there gets messy for any reason, the front of the switches stay nice and
clean, which makes a huge difference if you ever have a line card swap.
