Lucent’s has announced a new edition of its VitalSuite performance management software that helps IT professionals manage, measure and improve network and application performance.

Lucent's VitalSuite Enterprise software is based on a new core architecture to improve scalability, and boasts a new intelligent information partitioning and delivery system.

VitalSuite Enterprise gives IT professionals visibility into network resources, applications and business performance, enabling them to monitor and analyse the quality of services they are delivering to end users.

All collected performance data is rolled up to a new VitalSuite administrative interface, which lets IT professionals organize information by specific business units, departments, technologies or by geographical areas. Armed with this information, they can understand at-a-glance where problems exist and which users, business groups and regions will be impacted.

Using VitalSuite's new domains feature, IT professionals can monitor and report unique service levels for each defined user community. IT professionals responsible for delivering critical performance information for a myriad of network users and resources, all with varying service level agreement requirements, will benefit from VitalSuite Enterprise's group-partitioned reports, which translates into easier management of service level agreements.

"The goal of enterprise network performance management is changing from the optimization of a network infrastructure to the efficient delivery of network services to internal and external users," said Paul Bugala, research analyst at IDC. "VitalSuite Enterprise focuses on the coupling of physical and business views of network performance for emerging services, such as VPNs, to provide a solution in line with the evolution of enterprise service-level management."
