Enterprise Management Solutions:

The IT infrastructure is no longer single platform environment with few entities. The infrastructure is ever growing & is disparate/ heterogeneous. It is a mammoth task in many environments to manage infrastructure efficiently.

Server Management:

Most Server environments are getting to be a 24 * 7 * 365 kind of operation. It is becoming imperative that the management is proactive – the problem needs to be known in advance or at least it needs to be known when it occurs & also there is a need to have a Self-healing (rule based) approach.

Desktop Management:

When it comes to Desktop – there is an increasing need for standardization, patch updates, software distribution, Asset information/ control, Anti-piracy control, License Management, etc. Getting this done manually is a huge task & also time consuming – adding to all this is the Availability Window for the activity.

Network Management

Most organizations have multiple branches, has connection to Internet, Extranets with Customers/ Suppliers. It is a Network WEB which is Complex & difficult to manage.

It is becoming the need for most customers to have a centralized view of the network & get proactive alerts on the Link status, etc. Also managing the configurations of the devices from a single console is becoming important. The data collected enables appropriate analysis, etc.

Security Management:

Security is a key concern for most organizations – the concern is not only external threats, but also internal.

Security devices like Firewall, IDS's need to be in Control of the Security Manager. As organizations grow in terms of loations, no. of links, etc. – managing the security devices individually is becoming very difficult.

Most customers need to have a centralize Control Station for all the Securiy Devices. This enables them to have a control on the configuration, access list definition, patch/ signature updates, etc.

Identity Management:

Organizations are growing, becoming competitive. People resources are being added removed. It is becoming very important that the entitlements are defined for the various users & resources beyond the entitlement are not available for access. When a User joins an organization – it should become very seamless for the user. Upon a single login – the user should get access to all applications he is required to use. Also the organization recognizes the user & provisioning happens as defined. The user may be recognized thru various technologies spanning from a simple user login/ password.

Various other solutions like Anti-virus management, Patch management, Quality of Service, etc. forms part of this solution offering. If you are interested, we can make available more information.
