Boulder, CO. (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
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 Enterprise Network Availability Monitoring System (ENAMS). Created to assist IT professionals in selecting the right ENAMS products, EMA has identified the leading vendors in this space based on key criteria defined by EMA VP of Research, Jim Frey, and EMA Principal Research Analyst, Tracy Corbo.
EMA defines the term Enterprise Network Availability Monitoring System to include network-centric monitoring solutions that are used by enterprise network operations and engineering teams to discover, monitor, assess, troubleshoot, and manage medium to large enterprise networks. For this EMA Radar Report, specific focus has been placed on core capabilities and features that address network operators’ needs to ensure health and availability of the network, as well as the overall practitioner experience in procuring, deploying, administering, and using specific ENAMS products. Particular emphasis has been placed on features and functionality that networking professionals have articulated as being the most essential.
“Networks are the circulatory system of today’s enterprises, delivering the applications and services that are essential for business processes and success,” said Frey. “Job one for network operators is to make sure that the network is up, available, and healthy at all times. All of the solutions we studied in this report can do just that – fully monitor enterprise networks via a wide range of discovery, alarm management, and reporting features. But we did find clear distinctions between products in terms of scalability, advanced correlation & analytics, integration, cloud readiness, customizability, and total cost of ownership and operations.”
