Boulder, CO. (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a research Webinar entitled “Application-aware Network Performance Management Radar Report 2013” featuring EMA Managing Research Director, Jim Frey, and EMA Principal Research Analyst, Tracy Corbo.
The days when network managers could simply be concerned with interoperability and uptime are long past, and the focus has turned towards recognizing and eliminating performance degradations. This demand has also elevated and coalesced specifically around gaining a direct understanding of how applications and services – the life’s blood of IT-enabled organizations – are performing from the network perspective. Management products that address these objectives are known as Application-aware Network Performance Management (ANPM) solutions and are increasingly becoming essential technology for enterprise network management and operations teams.
For this EMA Radar™ Report, focus was placed specifically on core capabilities and features associated with network operations’ need to recognize, characterize, troubleshoot, and communicate details of how applications and services perform as they transit the network. Three common use cases – capacity planning, sustained monitoring, and troubleshooting – were examined in detail for solutions that are based (at least in part) on inspection of network packets and/or collection and analysis of flow records such as NetFlow, IPFIX, and sFlow.
During this 30-minute Webinar, Frey and Corbo will discuss:
-The continued growth in demand for visibility into which applications and services are driving network management systems, as well as key performance indicators of end user experience
-The variety of architectures, strategies and approaches available in the market today
-Major points of consideration for comparing application-aware network management systems
Additionally, an overview of application-aware network performance management solutions from the following vendors will be covered:
The Webinar is Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Those who wish to attend can register at: http://research.enterprisemanagement.com/network-performance-management-radar-report-webinar-pr.html
