Traditionally, Service Providers and Large Enterprise organizations have had just one choice when it comes to implementing a network management system to drive their network operations centers and service assurance strategies. While there are a variety of providers (including the Big Four), each of these solutions is based on the same business model. They all use a non-unified approach, where they take an acquired portfolio of tools and string them together into a complex and fragile infrastructure. Significant time (and cost) is expended implementing a makeshift synchronization of disparate pieces-and-parts.
The non-unified approach is fundamentally flawed. In fact, it’s impossible. Data from different tools can only be connected at a surface level. Therefore, critical detail is submerged and cannot be viewed, leveraged or made useful. There are a variety of compromises inherent in this approach:
Clearly, there’s an urgent need to solve this escalating dilemma. But the Big Four are not going to solve it, because investment in legacy systems and legacy tools impels them to try and sustain their house of cards. In 2005, Monolith stepped up to offer a radical new approach. Having no vested interest in legacy systems, Monolith was free to create a pure, logical and systematic approach to fulfilling today’s infrastructure management requirements. Monolith Software offers a new, unified model designed from the ground up to provide:
The unified approach simplifies complexity, reduces implementation
time and costs, unleashes data, and enables more impactful
Unlimited presentation capabilities. Monolith has a portal-style, unified interface that allows for user or group personalization. Views can be set to survey the entire managed infrastructure or dialed in to abstract specific components of interest into a highly targeted, useful view.
Powerful associative capabilities through the use of meta tagging and hierarchy-based definitions. This enables dynamic presentation, SLM and correlation capabilities well beyond what has previously been offered through non-unified approaches.
A single, unified database engine. Analytics, correlation, automation and presentation are all more powerful as a result of having data co-resident and pre-integrated within the Monolith solution.
The first, and the only, Unified Infrastructure
At some point in time, you’re looking at another tool, and you come to the realization that one more tool is going to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.Craig Yappert,
