World-leading provider of network monitoring and test solutions, Fluke Networks announces that its Visual TruView solution has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in Gartner's 2014 Magic Quadrant report.
The report, which is the first Magic Quadrant from Gartner on the Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD) market, predicts growth in this emerging technology market, and emphasises the need for a single integrated solution to monitor, troubleshoot and analyse networks, and even the applications and services they carry.
Gartner’s market analysis noted the growing interest in the NPMD market, also referred to as Application-aware Network Performance Management (AANPM). Increasingly, companies are realising the importance of understanding their customers’ and end users’ experience with their networks and applications. They recognise the need to proactively monitor their networks’ performance and quickly react to troubleshoot and repair outages and degradations that affect the experience of users and customers. Real-time performance, historical performance and predictive behaviour capabilities were among the criteria in the quadrant, as were flow-based data and network packet analysis.
According to Daryle DeBalski, vice president and general manager of the Fluke Networks Visual business unit, Gartner’s decision to develop the NPMD report highlights the growing importance of this market and emphasises just how vital network and application performance management is for enterprises to achieve their business goals.
As one of the leading NPMD solutions, Visual TruView helps IT professionals redefine their ability to deliver first-rate network and application experience to end users and customers by empowering teams to collaborate across domains and focus on service.
A recent survey of network professionals conducted by Fluke Networks indicated that more than half do not have the tools they need to quickly and accurately identify issues with VoIP, applications and other network performance issues.
Fluke Networks’ Visual TruView is a unified AANPM solution that incorporates five tools in one, including real-time user experience monitoring, packet stream-to-disk, NetFlow/IPFIX collection, device health, and VoIP QoS. TruView enables network engineers to gather data from multiple sources, providing a wide breadth of visibility as well as the detailed forensic data required to solve the toughest problems.
