Infovista Receives “Strong Value” Recognition in EMA Application-Aware Network Management Radar Report

PARIS, France and HERNDON, Virginia—September 9, 2010—Infovista, the global leader of IP and RF planning, assurance and optimization software solutions, today announced that Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and advisory firm, has recognized Infovista as a “Strong Value” vendor in the recently released “EMA Radar™ for Application-Aware Network Performance Management (ANPM) Q3 2010” report.  The report ranked Infovista in the top three for relative vendor strength based on its size, longevity, solid vision and strategy, and well-developed partnership/channel programs, and also acknowledged Infovista’s Web 2.0 network and application performance management dashboard, Vista360, as “leading-edge.”

Additionally, Infovista was recognized as one of only three vendors with the capabilities needed to serve the robust network and application performance management requirements of managed service providers (MSPs), which are providers offering managed application-aware WAN services to their enterprise customers. To successfully address this market, the ANPM system must be designed as a cost-effective shared system with rigorous partitioning and controls (known as multitenant support) to prevent data mixing or improper access.

“As witnessed by EMA’s Strong Value rating, Infovista has built a broad and rich set of features into its integrated network and application performance management solution,” said Jim Frey, EMA Research Director and the author of the report. “InfoVista’s carrier-class, multi-tenant solution, and its innovative Vista360 user interface, offer leading scalability and an innate understanding of service-oriented operations. This has enabled Infovista to meet the application-aware network performance management needs of some of the largest and most demanding service providers and enterprise IT organizations.”

Participants in the EMA report included only providers that have invested significant development into delivering solutions that offer substantial value to network operations and engineering practitioners, and thus can be considered the ANPM elite. Key highlights from the report regarding Infovista’s unified solution include:

  • Setting the pace with Vista360 for graphically rich, intuitive dashboards, featuring rapid navigation plus full configurability to serve virtually any internal or external constituency in a secure manner
  • Strong relative rankings for visualization/reporting, roles supported and troubleshooting
  • Best-in-class capability rankings for application discovery/recognition and metrics and measurements
  • Above average in relative cost efficiency
  • Among the best in terms of supported integrations with event management, service management, and CMDB/CMS systems

“We are pleased to be recognized as a leader in our space,” said Philippe Ozanian, CEO of Infovista. “EMA’s evaluation affirms the unparalleled value, efficiencies, and service-oriented features we provide to our customers. Infovista is one of the most innovative companies in its segment and we intend to keep bringing innovative solutions to market, solidifying our leadership for years to come.”
