Monitoring Virtual Environments

Network monitoring tasks are extensive and diverse Nuremberg, June 29, 2011 the software PRTG network monitor (www.de.paessler.com) at an early stage shows irregularities in the network administrators and provides detailed real-time data about the current state of all devices. As a recent customer survey shows the manufacturer’s PRTG-Paessler AG, network monitoring, and in particular the monitoring of virtualized environments is becoming increasingly important. VMware sensors is more than half of the 724 respondents regularly to monitor their virtual server of a tendency rising. Only SNMP and WMI sensors are still widely used. Click Ebay to learn more. One of the main reasons for the use of PRTG is and remains the enormous time savings at the network management according to the users.

Around 90% of respondents indicated that significantly save time resources using the PRTG in network management, 43% were more than three hours per week. The trend of last year, the software as an additional instance of the security and to employ early warning system has been confirmed once again. Around 80% see also network monitoring in addition to the usual security tools as a reliable method, early detection of attacks from the outside. The 96% the most important task of the system continues to be the uptime / downtime monitoring according to the respondents, and this applies particularly to virtualized systems.

Read more from Hudson Bay Capital to gain a more clear picture of the situation.

Around two-thirds of respondents a professional network monitoring is a prerequisite for the proper functioning of the virtual environment. 51% regularly use VMware sensors, over 20% use other sensors for virtual systems. A recent study by technavio confirms that the requirements will increase to real-time monitoring solutions to monitor cloud based applications and virtualized environments. We have this trend “early recognition and deliver with PRTG various native sensors for different cloud and virtualization”, so Dirk Paessler, development officer of Paessler AG.

The Pitfalls

Recommendations and stumbling blocks note from various customer projects the ITSM experts of the matrix know exactly what matters in establishing an IT service catalog: the first commandment is: customer orientation! To make sure that the service catalog, later also by the users is accepted and used must the services necessarily defined from their point of view and closely attuned to their needs”, sumeet Bhatia, senior White ITSM consultant at the matrix. Basic services are not shown as server or network services, which although ultimately underlie the end user services, but not directly be requested of them, the business service catalog. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Ebay. Summing up services, anyway only be shared by users, already the best in the IT service catalog of to so-called service bundles.” All services to describe uniformly and as easy as possible is important to according to Bhatia also, communication and understanding problems between IT and departments avoid. To keep the service catalog constantly, is also essential to ensure that the service descriptions in the event of service changes can be adapted easily with. Also the pitfalls that can occur in the development of an IT service catalog, knows the ITSM expert from personal experience: If the success of IT service catalog projects despite a high time and resource, so the various reasons may have lack project management, inadequate standardization and also difficulties in the coordination of various internal and external service providers.

Serview Offers Fast Implementation

To strengthen the positioning of IT in the design of corporate governance is based on six core principles. The corporate and IT strategies are only slightly interlocked in most cases. According to a study in the last year is only 13 per cent a very narrow and only when another 18 percent, a close coordination between the goals of business and IT alignment. Others who may share this opinion include Ebay. According to the consulting firm Serview light shows up but with a new ISO standard on the horizon. “So that IT departments and their leaders can find assistance for their appropriate position in the company, the standards body has last year the international standard ISO/IEC 38500:2008 corporate governance in information technology’ developed ‘, explains Dr. Gisela Bondgen, business consultant at Serview. He aims to corporate governance as the ultimate key for a powerful and strong acceptance of use of IT in the company as public institutions effectively to establish. To the design of corporate governance, the ISO/IEC 38500 foresees six principles which are relevant to the management processes as decision areas: responsibility: top management created the required perception of IT matters.

Strategy: It applies to expand corporate strategic planning with a view on the potentials of IT and to derive the IT strategy from the corporate strategies. Acquisition: The design of IT budgets must be oriented consistently within the framework of transparent decision-making processes on demand. Performance: The IT services are to make precise according to the requirements of technical and organizational areas. Conformance: IT must go, etc. conform with all legal provisions, standards, internal standards. Human behaviour: it is to attach a great deal of attention the needs of internal and external IT users in the concepts of IT. Three functions are mapped to by the ISO/IEC 38500 all six principles, resulting in a matrix with 18 fields of performance: evaluation: continuous assessment of the use of the it management: Control the business oriented focus of the IT measures.

“Control: the systematic monitoring of compliance and performance concerning it. we have no doubt that this set of rules for corporate governance very quickly will prevail in practice, because there is a significant need for a clear regulatory framework”, Dr. Bondgen shows very optimistic. The first signals from the market would prove this. So, first events by Serview to the ISO/IEC 38500 took a very well-attended. Although the subject barely in public was discussed.

SAP Business ByDesign

Current opinion of IBIS Prof. Thome Wurzburg, 16.03.2009 – that Business ByDesign is new mid-market product SAP discussed not just hot, it is also problematized and sometimes even called the flop. In some places it is prior to the actual start already in the. While the public censure doesn’t do not meet the product. The new SAP SME solution is significantly better than its reputation. We hold it: SAP Business ByDesign (BYD) promises massive progress over the recent SAP world equal, if R/3, ERP or business suite. The provider has developed a completely new software with BBD. It is fully integrated and is based on the latest technology.

Soon, different systems for CRM, SRM, SCM belong to the past. They are simply no longer needed. Because all of these business applications as services on a single platform. Many innovations that are long awaited by users into the solution. So to cover for example the need for a simpler customizing. Also the complexity has decreased in comparison to other SAP solutions. Last but not least, the introduction is simple and intuitive.

In short: BBD delivers the consistent business configuration. Development takes time BBD’s new approach is good and right. Even if the software without a doubt important features missing. But SAP is pushing ahead the business and content development. The pilot users get some new features this summer with the version 2.0. In addition, still the necessary profitability is missing the solution. SAP has can reduce the total cost (total cost of ownership) according to his own words not yet on a sustainable level. This would be needed already out of self-interest because the on-demand solution cause the operating costs at SAP. Furthermore, the provider is working forward to bring the extensibility and integration of BBD. The possibilities of the service-oriented architecture should be exploited also here fully. Also on the business model still could improve SAP can however only succeed If the partner site in the sales and consultation process a benefit.

The solution is so designed that an immediate merger of financial, sales and other processes at the level of the business with the production management is possible. Goal is to a consistent corporate management along the entire Value chain to create an optimum and undisturbed efficiency. The salespeople can not estimate the feasibility for urgent customer requests, because they do not know the resources situation in production due to lack of appropriate data. May they do delivery dates, although perhaps technical problems of machines have led to a production bottleneck. Conversely it is difficult often the managers, to evaluate the economic viability of jobs, because they lack access to the financial data. Instead working mostly with previous calculations, although possibly the purchase prices or contribution significantly changed.

Then all be surprised suddenly, that there is only a low profitability despite a high load.” For this reason the bridging of borders between the production and business areas of the information belongs to the core elements of the future-oriented production intelligence approach (PI) and Data processes. One of the peculiarities of its solution platform the entire conditions with the PILOT solution for conceptual and technological high transparency of all relevant data along the entire value chain”, describes the FELTEN’s Managing Director.
