Newly Re-branded Visual Network Systems to Deliver Enterprise Service Intelligence for Improved Business Services Delivery

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Visual Network Systems, a leading provider of application and network performance management solutions for IT organizations, today announced Enterprise Management Associates' (EMA) support of its re-branding strategy. A collection of products from the Fluke Networks Systems assets including Visual Performance Manager (VPM), Application Performance Appliance, Visual UpTime, NetAlly and NetFlow Tracker, have been integrated to form the core of Visual Network Systems. The new organization is focused exclusively on addressing the needs and requirements of large enterprises and managed services providers under the Enterprise Service Intelligence strategy.

The maturation of IT infrastructures has prompted a natural move towards visibility into and awareness of how applications and services traversing the network behave and perform. Therefore, network and applications teams are working to establish such visibility by increasing their knowledge of how customers experience IT services, looking for solutions to help them more efficiently and effectively respond to failures, seeking clear understanding of growth and usage trends and early indicators of potential problems. As evidenced with two immediate product announcements – VPM Connex™ and Analysis Service Elements (ASEs) – EMA states that Visual Network Systems is well-poised to deliver solutions to address the needs of large enterprises and managed service providers.

"Visual Network Systems is off to a great start and has the potential to successfully address the mounting challenges to assure large-scale network and application performance," said Jim Frey, research director, Enterprise Management Associates. "With a solid assembly of technology components, dedicated development and go-to-market resources, the organization will be able to execute a strategy to meet the demands of large enterprises and managed service providers."

Visual Network Systems operates as an independent entity, with its own development resources and sales and marketing teams, but remains in position to access and leverage technologies  from the Communication and Enterprise Group within Danaher Corporation, including Fluke Networks and Tektronix Communications.
