BT MOVES APPLICATION PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT TO THE CLOUD
“BT Connect Intelligence InfoVista-as-a-Service” delivers application visibility, control and optimisation from the cloud
BT today announced the launch of “BT Connect Intelligence InfoVista-as-a-Service”, a new application performance management solution delivered from the cloud.
The new solution adds a scalable “as-a-service” flexible pricing model to BT’s applications performance management portfolio, BT Connect Intelligence. It delivers InfoVista’s Ipanema technology via BT’s cloud infrastructure, integrating all the capabilities organisations need to orchestrate the performance of business applications running across their network.
BT Connect Intelligence InfoVista-as-a-Service gives enterprises greater flexibility and cost control as they manage the experience of users accessing business-critical applications across the corporate network, regardless of how they connect and how much bandwidth they use. It also gives enterprises a more predictable view of costs as its user-based pricing is not affected by the growth of network bandwidth.
BT Connect Intelligence InfoVista-as-a-Service is designed to help organisations on their digital transformation journey as they increasingly rely on dynamic network services. It is a simple and proven way for them to deliver the flexibility and cost benefits of a software-defined network (SDN) using their existing network infrastructure.
The new solution is available globally to both BT’s existing network customers and organisations using other network providers.
The software underpinning the solution is delivered from BT’s cloud infrastructure and its management is now possible over the internet. This allows customers to benefit from fast implementation, self-service and availability over any wide area network (WAN) infrastructure. Customers also benefit from Ipanema’s application visibility and control, WAN optimisation and dynamic path selection functions.
Keith Langridge, vice president network services, Global Services, BT, said: “BT is the first in the industry to launch this innovative variant of the proven InfoVista-based application performance management technology. We are providing our customers with even more choice and flexibility as they embark on their digital transformation journeys.”
Louise Maitland, vice president, global channel for BT, InfoVista, said: “Enterprises are rapidly adopting hybrid networks to cope with ever increasing bandwidth demands as they transform into digital businesses. BT’s innovative, user-based pricing allows customers to purchase InfoVista’s Ipanema solution in a true SaaS subscription model independent of bandwidth, giving enterprises the flexibility they need to launch new applications and services when they need it.”
