Solutions for Experts and Novices Alike
Entuity was founded in 1997 based on the premise that it should be possible to develop a network management system that didn’t require three weeks and a team of vendor consultants to install and configure it. And it shouldn’t require an internal IT team of doctoral candidates to operate and maintain it. The system would comprise the key functional capabilities necessary to pinpoint problems quickly and efficiently. It would also be necessary to enable its users to report their operational successes without an up-front technical tutorial and dictionary of acronyms and metrics for senior management to first learn.
The Entuity Difference
And this solution would come from a vendor who is transparent, accommodating, flexible, and extremely easy to work with. In other words, Entuity’s goal was to provide a network management solution unlike anything offered at the time by the large ‘framework’ vendors.
It would help users, through the latest automationand integration techniques, to discover an accurate inventory of the devices they had on their network, how they were truly connected, their status – both real-time and in-depth, and how well the overall network was performing. All this information would be stored in a single place, because there is true value in integrating this information. For example, performance can be affected by faults and faults can be caused by changes in inventory. If this information is seamlessly integrated in a single place, it can be correlated and displayed back to the user in a sensible, valuable and easily digestible manner. No more “swivel chair management” looking to one screen for one thing, another screen for another. And no more analysis and correlation taking place in the network admin’s head (or not).
And that’s exactly what we developed.
From the front office to the manufacturing floor and from applications to VoIP; networks are the critical component that ties all business functions together. Virtually all of the applications and services required to run an enterprise business today rely on the ability of an IP based network infrastructure to deliver reliable and predictable performance.
At the simplest level, a network consists of a number of separate devices that are configured to function together and act as a data transport mechanism. However, today’s networks are complex to design and build and can be even tougher to keep running. The complexity is driven from both a business and technology perspective and can include:
