Application-Aware Network Performance Management Radar Report: Illuminating the Pipes
Boulder, CO (Vocus) July 29, 2010
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced the release of its newest EMA Radar Report™ titled, EMA Radar™ for Application-Aware Network Performance Management (ANPM) Q3 2010. Created to assist IT professionals in selecting the right network performance management products, the EMA ANPM Radar Report identifies the leading vendors in this space based on key criteria defined by EMA Research Director, Network Management, Jim Frey.
“The application-aware network performance management sector is remarkably crowded. Many management technology providers are adding ANPM capabilities into broader suites of capabilities, but there are still several standalone vendors purely focused on the space, as well as a steady stream of new entrants. This report puts the various offerings and options into perspective based on the underlying technologies, the practical applications, as well as the cost to procure, deploy, and administer these solutions.”
In measuring ANPM solutions, the following major product/solution strength factors were evaluated:
1. Architecture and Scalability – breadth of network/application technologies and size of environments supported
2. Cross-functional Capabilities – depth of support for both engineering (capacity planning) and operations (monitoring and troubleshooting)
3. Advanced Analytics – features for accelerating analysis and intelligently interpreting large volumes of metrics and data
4. Collaboration – user interface and reporting tools for sharing information with IT peer groups as well as served customers
5. Integration – ability to share events and data with other IT management systems
The complete EMA Radar™ for Application-Aware Network Performance Management (ANPM) Q3 2010 is available online for $795 at http://www.enterprisemanagement.com/research/asset.php?id=1800
