Network Management

What is
Network Management
Network Management is a general term used for a variety of different applications used to manage network devices.

Legacy network management was based on simple network management protocol (SNMP), which could map your network switches and routers, monitor, get alerts, and configure network devices. Current network management can include analytics to monitor traffic, report what applications are being used, and help determine where a problem might exist. Other functions include compliance reporting, configuration management, analytics, network access control (NAC), and other services based on emerging artificial intelligence (AI) / machine learning (ML) capabilities. 

Network management is changing. Most networking vendors have a cloud management platform deployed as software-as-a-service (SaaS) that can manage the network. Some can be installed in a data center with similar capabilities as cloud offerings. 
Beyond the cloud and on-premise solutions, customers can also choose to have a managed services provider (MSP) manage their network for a monthly fee.
Network management empowers organizations to accomplish more with less resource demand. It is common for companies to run a small staff to support the network. Thus, having the appropriate tools can significantly help with troubleshooting and keeping the network up and running. 

Compliance reporting is essential for companies that are regulated for PCI, HIPAA, and the like. Backing up configurations is essential so that new equipment can be restored as quickly as possible in the event of a failure. 
Artificial Intelligence can be used to
provide insight into how your network is performing compared to other anonymous customers.  
Do More with Less
When you are hard coded to the hardware, the lack of flexibility will hinder response to changing business requirements. Without SDDC, scaling and deploying your application will have longer delays and less agility. SDDC allows for more control and a more granular security profile.
