NetIQ Enhances IT Reporting Across Systems and Security Management Assets

Analysis Center 2.6 Reduces Reporting Complexity and Improves IT Visibility with a Single Tool


Press Release

HOUSTON

As IT services become increasingly complex and mission critical, reporting on the delivery and quality of those services is an absolute necessity. NetIQ, an Attachmate business, today announced the latest iteration of NetIQ Analysis CenterTM, delivering unified reporting for system and security management assets. Analysis Center provides a single-console, comprehensive view of IT environments, automates reporting and provides accurate information to help enterprises ensure Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and Operations Level Agreements (OLAs) are consistently met.

"As a city government entity, our taxpayers hold us accountable for the operations and management of the various city systems and web-based services they rely on for information and assistance," said Walter Wilson, central network administrator, City of Houston. "It is our responsibility to ensure that we manage our IT assets according to the level of service our residents require, whether they are accessing records online, paying bills electronically or e-filing on our website. With Analysis Center, we can produce accurate reports on the health and status of our systems and IT infrastructure, thus allowing us to proactively prevent service disruption and ultimately maintain our constituents' trust."

NetIQ Analysis Center 2.6 software analyzes and reports on system availability, security activities, service level metrics and root-cause analysis through a single, unified console. This simplified approach to reporting helps organizations identify areas of compliance or non-compliance with service level and security metrics, as well as fulfillment of SLAs and OLAs, which is necessary for measuring the effectiveness of today's IT organizations.

To help customers create targeted reports for their environment, Analysis Center 2.6 features a Report Wizard, producing intelligent, custom-designed reports specifically tailored to the needs of individual organizations. By answering a series of simple questions, customers can easily identify servers and applications on which they wish to report. The wizard evaluates the environment and suggests graphics that best communicate the data. With this addition in Analysis Center 2.6, IT managers now have the ability to easily and accurately report across their entire IT environment.

"Reporting is an integral part of systems and security management as well as IT process management, especially as IT and operational goals converge and regulations demand more detail and accountability," said Criss Scruggs, senior product manager, NetIQ. "It is imperative for IT managers to constantly justify business value, and Analysis Center provides service level reporting capabilities that reduce the complexity of that burden and serve as an effective trending, forecasting and planning tool for enterprises managing critical information assets."

Pricing and Availability

NetIQ Analysis Center 2.6 for AppManager software is currently available. Pricing starts at $150.00 per server. For more information, call NetIQ at (888) 323-6768.
