Boulder, CO. (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a research webinar entitled “How to Understand Network Dependencies: Best Practices for Automation and Limiting Risk,” featuring EMA VP of Research, Network Management, Jim Frey.
Effective network management practices start with establishing a full foundational understanding of the network. But simply monitoring individual elements can only get network management professionals so far. Historically, going the next step requires manually building and maintaining the knowledge of how those disparate elements are connected and how they interact with one another to deliver applications and communications. In other words, network management professionals need to understand network-level dependencies. When armed with such information, network managers and operators can accelerate problem resolutions by focusing on root causes of network issues, while also having a leg up on recognizing growing problems and dealing with them before they result in outages or serious performance degradations.
During this webinar, Frey will reveal:
- Why network dependencies are so important to understand
- Where to find the insights needed to reveal network dependencies
- Network discovery tools – what they can and can’t do
- Common concerns with discovery tools and how to overcome them
- Applying automation for tracking dependencies
The webinar is Tuesday, October 14 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Those who wish to attend can register at: http://research.enterprisemanagement.com/network-dependencies-webinar-pr.html
Webinar attendees will receive the EMA Radar for Enterprise Network Availability Monitoring Systems (ENAMS)- a $795 value. 17 products from 16 vendor suppliers are reviewed and compared in this study.
