How long did it take to get a permanent fix for your last network problem? Too long? Even worse, did you fall short of actually getting one? If so, it’s not surprising. But because of network visibility problems, chances are good that your organization is leaking real money in network and business downtime.
You can’t manage and protect what you can’t see. While many hundreds of network monitoring tools exist, organizations today know surprisingly little about the traffic on their missioncritical high-speed networks. It takes them so long to fix network problems that the business suffers while the seconds, minutes, and hours of downtime accumulate.
This situation has never been ideal, but it is now becoming costlier than ever as we grow more dependent on networks to transact business.

An intelligent, searchable recording fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it?
We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier 2 engineers to handle resolving the most difficult and costly network issues while using less expensive personnel to handle easier ones.
But justifying a network investment on a soft, intuitive argument like this alone doesn’t usually suffice. And, depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential will vary. At the high end, in many financial and brokerage institutions, a minute of downtime can cost the company millions of dollars. So being able to shave even a single minute off network downtime with a pervasive monitoring tool represents an immediate recovery of the fabric investment.
The status quo in network monitoring is no longer adequate for large organizations. It’s simply taking too long for enterprises with mission-critical networks to resolve and find the root causes of network incidents. To speed things up, enterprises must add dedicated incident response and root cause analysis capabilities that are 100% accurate and reliable to their network management arsenals.
It takes so long to diagnose, fix, and eradicate network incidents that network uptime and performance are suffering. Because of this, organizations need to embrace incident response and root cause analysis capabilities to accelerate resolution times and avoid the network downtime and service degradation that can cost them thousands, if not millions, of dollars per minute.

Having 100% accurate network visibility is a looming requirement for avoiding substantial financial losses. Why? And how can you get it?

UW-Superior’s IT team was looking to replace their outdated intrusion prevention system. After a full evaluation of AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform, they decided to leverage it to meet their IDS needs. As the team became familiar with using AlienVault USM as their intrusion detection system, they began to implement the other tools that make up the USM platform. They realized that because so many security features were already included in USM, like behavioral monitoring, SIEM and vulnerability assessment, they would not have to purchase additional security tools that they previously thought they would need.
We all know the wisdom of monitoring familiar key performance indicators (KPIs). Turns, gross margin return on investment (GMROI), sales, inventory measures, and other metrics will tell you how your business is faring—and that’s pretty important if you want to keep your hardware store in business.
However, just staying in business isn’t enough in a rapidly evolving retail world, so achieving improved KPI results is essential.
In this Epicor eBook, you’ll learn about eight easy-to-use tools that go beyond traditional KPIs to quickly improve business results, including:
• Reviewing store-to-store sales
• Identifying your top 100 items
• Monitoring excess inventory
• Viewing items with cost change and no retail change

For internal support centers, the message coming from the overall
business is clear: You need to demonstrate your business value.
Outsourcing, managed services and cloud-based solutions that
didn’t exist just a few years ago are piling on the pressure.
For years, many support teams have been hamstrung by their traditional service desk platforms, which require complex, time-consuming coding for virtually every aspect of customization. This complexity makes it costly and difficult for support organizations to adapt—and places an increasingly substantial burden on the agility and efficiency of the business as a whole. CA Cloud Service Management is a clearly differentiated alternative to traditional service desk platforms. CA Cloud Service Management is purpose built for speed—rapidly accelerating time-to-value where other SaaS solutions fall short. Implement in days, adopt with minimal training, configure without programmers, automate end-user requests, and get automatic upgrades.
