Research and Markets: Radar for Enterprise Network Management Systems (ENMS): Q4 2012


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Radar for Enterprise Network Management Systems (ENMS): Q4 2012" report to their offering.

The term "network management" encompasses a broad range of solutions from single point products to element managers to large enterprise-class solutions. For the purpose of this report, the term Enterprise Network Management Systems (ENMS) includes network-centric management solutions that are used by large organizations -- operations and engineering teams to discover, monitor, assess, troubleshoot, and generally maintain highly distributed enterprise networks.

For this Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) Radar Report, the focus was put specifically on core capabilities and features primarily associated with network operations -- need to ensure health and availability of the network. Supporting functional capabilities such as performance monitoring, configuration management, asset management, as well as integrated management of connected non-network devices were also considered, but as non-critical (albeit helpful/valuable) extensions.

In this EMA Radar Report, 16 current ENMS solutions coming from 15 vendor providers are reviewed and compared according to a broad range of measures regarding both product strength and overall cost efficiency, as well as in terms of the overall strength of the vendors themselves.
