ManageEngine launches OpManager Large Enterprise Edition
New edition said to blend ‘enterprise-grade scalability, speed, agility, affordability’
Real-time IT management company ManageEngine today announced the general availability of the Large Enterprise Edition of OpManager, the network and data centre infrastructure management software.
"The new edition combines enterprise-grade scalability, speed, agility and affordability to offer a compelling alternative for companies seeking to replace their legacy network management tools from HP, IBM, CA and Microsoft," ManageEngine said.
The company argues that today's enterprise IT strategies are no longer driven from the top down, heavily influenced by large vendors such as HP, IBM, CA and Microsoft. Instead, CIOs formulate strategies based on a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach to IT management tools and techniques. This approach starts from the bottom up, providing better control and flexibility to IT admins on the front lines.
The shift in strategic thinking is being made possible by a new generation of IT management solutions that can be rapidly procured and deployed and easily operated by IT admins at the department level, yet efficiently scale across the enterprise to meet IT managers' demands for unified control.
"For a lot of large enterprise IT departments, the DIY model of IT management tools and techniques works because it puts the IT team in charge," said Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine.
"With DIY, you're not waiting for a battalion of consultants to turn up just to get your software up and running. OpManager Large Enterprise Edition is our response to the rise of DIY. This edition scales our proven, trusted infrastructure management solution to support the largest of enterprises."
