NOTABLE QUOTES

Quote, attributed to Jim Frey, Managing Research Director - Network Management, Enterprise Management Associates
“Entuity continues to impress with its focus on continuous improvement in core features and capabilities of the EYE platform while also adding support for new technologies.  Network managers will appreciate EYE 2012’s extended support for virtual switches, the improved discovery accuracy, and the new streamlined user interface.  Of special note are the major changes made to the charting features in the operator console, which open new realms of scope and flexibility to shorten diagnostic and reporting workflows.

Quote, attributed to Bojan Simic, President and Principal Analyst, TRAC Research“With the release of EYE 2011 Updraft, Entuity continues to focus on those areas of network management that provide the most value to customers while helping them reduce the time and effort required to obtain actionable results. It is good to see that this release of EYE is focusing on two of the key pain points for network management that end-user organizations are reporting: managing virtualized environments and measuring the business impact of network performance.

Quote, attributed to Jim Frey, Managing Research Director, Network Management, Enterprise Management Associates “Entuity has long focused on delivering a comprehensive set of network management capabilities with their EYE solution. With the release of EYE 2011 Updraft, Entuity has continued raising the bar by adding more functionality for managing virtualized environments, multi-vendor support for configuration management, and significant new levels of flexibility for customizing dashboards and reports. Entuity’s ability to deliver such breadth in a single system makes them a worthy alternative to traditional enterprise-class network management platforms.”

Quote, attributed to Bojan Simic, Principle Analyst, Trac Research
"Organizations are becoming more interested in taking a unified approach for managing the performance of IT services that would allow them to have full visibility into how different infrastructure parts are impacting the quality of end-user experience. The integration with Entuity's EYE product adds a network management piece to application performance management and end-user experience monitoring, providing more visibility across different parts of the application delivery chain."
