Imagine Your Network
While decreasing design time, increasing profitability and improving efficiencies along the entire opportunity-to-order cycle.
IP networks are bigger, faster and more complex than ever due to increases in both traffic and sophisticated high-bandwidth applications. According to Forrester Research, keeping up with these demands requires that enterprise networks be refreshed more often - every two to three years. Four major factors making it more important than ever for enterprises, and the vendors who support their networks, to have accurate and current network blueprints are:
- Security and business continuity
- Network-centric application initiatives such as collaboration tools and Web 2.0 Data center modernization
- Mobility and an increasingly distributed workforce
To be responsive to these customer-driven needs, demands on the talents of network design professionals are more pressing than at any time in history. Leading IP networking companies, from network equipment vendors to service providers to systems integrators, must find ways to use these valuable resources more efficiently while reducing costly errors.
Although there are hundreds of automated software tools to help with provisioning and implementing networks once the contract is signed, until now, there has been no single, integrated solution to address the design and proposal generation phase of the enterprise network lifecycle.
Fortunately, Netformx provides a range of design tools and services that serve as building block to fill this crucial gap in productivity tools.
