Why Network Performance Management Matters
Network performance management (NPM) is vital to assuring mission-critical business service availability and performance. Any disruption can negatively impact productivity, customer satisfaction and ultimately revenue. IT teams are challenged to respond to triggers - often in the form of a user complaint that “the network is slow” - then quickly identify the source of the problem in a complex service and network environment. Optimizing performance has become an imperative in the face of ongoing digital transformation, with initiatives that include data center consolidation, virtualization, cloud migration, and evolution to sophisticated voice and collaboration services.
YOU CAN'T MANAGE WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE: THIS IS WHY YOU NEED NETWORK PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT
You need multi-layered visibility across your entire distributed environment to provide end-to-end availability and network performance management. A proactive monitoring and triage approach to service assurance will help prevent service disruptions and reduce mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) when a problem does occur.
REAL-TIME NETWORK MONITORING
An effective approach includes real-time network monitoring that enhances situational awareness and enables early warning for critical network incidents in both the wired and wireless environments. Wire-traffic intelligence is needed for enterprise-wide visibility and analysis to precisely diagnose whether client services, servers, applications environments or the infrastructure network is causing the disruption or “slow network” problem. Understanding how wireless traffic is expanding and impacting network resources can help you get ahead of potential capacity and bandwidth issues going forward.
NETWORK PERFORMANCE TEAMS HATE HEARING: "WHY IS THE NETWORK SO SLOW?"
The pace of change in the IT world is unrelenting, so managing bottlenecks, visibility into third-party vendor performance and session timeouts can cause the network to be slow. This means you need solutions you can rely on to ensure your services and applications are reliable and will be able to adapt with your ever-changing environment. That’s where NETSCOUT can help.
