VistaFoundation® – Administration

VistaFoundation (VF) is the adaptive technology platform from Infovista for service-centric IT performance reporting. This course teaches new and experienced users how to operate and maintain a VF solution, using the VistaInsight® for Networks (VIN) solution, as a case study.

The course is designed as a hands-on, intensive training. Starting with a pre-installed VistaFoundation platform, the course leads the student through all phases of VIN ‘Services’ provisioning, reporting and troubleshooting, in order to maintain a healthy system.

While this course uses the VIN solution as its theme, the knowledge acquired here is equally applicable to all VF solutions.
