NetIQ Launches Unified Communications Channel Recruitment Campaign at Cisco Networkers 2009 Event

New EMEA Channel Sales Director Appointed to Head Up Recruitment Drive

Press Release


NetIQ, an Attachmate business, today announced the launch of its new EMEA Channel Recruitment program at the Cisco Networkers event in Barcelona 26 – 29 January. As part of the event, the organization kicked off its first campaign to aggressively recruit new Unified Communications channel partners across the region. This is targeted at channel partners with VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) expertise that wish to develop on-going business from NetIQ's market-leading management solutions.

To lead recruitment efforts surrounding Unified Communications channel partners across the region, NetIQ has appointed Niall Lynch to the newly created role of EMEA Channel Sales Director. Niall, who joined NetIQ in 2002, has a proven leadership record and comprehensive understanding of the channel business which he will leverage to extend NetIQ's channel relationships across EMEA.

NetIQ provides proven Unified Communications Management solutions that improve the performance and availability of services, enabling channel partners to deliver more added value to customers and grow their business. These solutions manage the complete converged service and proactively improve the quality of experience for users. NetIQ's network diagnostics, monitoring and professional services for day-to-day operations and management provides a unique lifecycle approach to managing Unified Communications, with out-of-box support for the industry's leading vendors.

NetIQ® AppManager® effectively monitors and manages VoIP deployments—a central component to the Unified Communications infrastructure. NetIQ AppManager for VoIP specifically detects quality of service, limits call degradation and provides quick diagnosis to ensure a consistent, exceptional end-user experience. NetIQ's "single pane of glass" view of the converged voice and data network enables an organisation to correlate events and take corrective or preventative action, effectively reducing the resources and time required to resolve issues.

NetIQ provides the following:

  • NetIQ AppManager for VoIP – Enables administrators to effectively monitor quality of service and end-user experience with VoIP applications.
  • NetIQ® Vivinet® Assessor – Delivers network readiness diagnostics for converged networks - voice, data, video - to ensure consistent application performance.
  • NetIQ® Vivinet® Diagnostics – Proactively discovers and quickly troubleshoots call quality problems on VoIP networks, reducing the mean time to resolve issues.

With ever-increasing constraints on time and budgets, IT process automation is now a key focus for organizations looking to improve and measure IT operations efficiencies. To this end, NetIQ also delivers NetIQ Aegis®—a vendor-agnostic platform to help customers more easily manage their converged voice and data networks, by automating repetitive and manual tasks.

Niall Lynch comments: "With the launch of this new recruitment campaign we look forward to extending our reach of channel partners across EMEA so that their customers can protect their Unified Communications investments and demonstrate real value to their organizations.

NetIQ is committed to building on its network of Unified Communications channel partners with world-leading solutions and a clear focus on developing long-term channel relationships. We have a long-standing history in this space and can offer a strong local presence in each of the regions across EMEA, to provide on-the-ground support for regional business managers. This is supported by NetIQ's professional services and training to help channel partners maximize their investment in NetIQ solutions.

With a full portfolio of solutions in Unified Communications management, Systems and Security management, Virtualization management and now, IT Process Automation, we can enable channel partners to expand their customer base beyond Unified Communications and add real value to their proposition."
