Guarantee application performance
The perfect quality and stability of end-users’ experience is critical for their productivity, day-to-day satisfaction and finally the business. Guaranteeing the performance of each business application is increasingly difficult because of the dynamicity and the variety of the applications that run over the network (ERP, Unified Communications, desktop virtualization, file transfer, Internet, etc.) as well as the complexity of the delivery (on-premises, cloud, hosting, peer-to-peer, etc.). The growing budget constraints that IT departments are facing do not help, either.
To address these challenges, Ipanema empowers enterprises to:
- Guarantee application performance for each business application, anytime;
- Directly align the network with the enterprise’s business goals;
- Dynamically adapt to IT transformations like cloud computing or company M&A;
- Automatically enforce and control application SLAs.
Guarantee application performance: Ipanema understands applications activity whatever the traffic situation (on premises, peer-to-peer, cloud, hybrid…). It dynamically allocates priorities and resources for each flow over the corporate network to guarantee the performance delivered to each user of business critical applications.
Align to enterprise’s business goals: the enterprise simply defines which applications really matter (SAP, Oracle, MS Lync, Salesforce, SharePoint…). Four criticality levels allow an easy ranking among the enterprise’s portfolio of applications. Directly connecting business requirements to application delivery, this information is used by Ipanema to guarantee the performance delivered to each user.
Adapt to IT transformations: Ipanema understands in real-time where applications sit, how many users are connected, what is their exact activity, etc. Deploying a new application, setting-up a temporary workforce, moving a server farm, rolling-out virtual desktops, opening a new branch… all that complex changes are understood and taken into account in real-time to guarantee the performance. Ipanema is decoupling application management from the IT infrastructure to ensure performance continuity and to secure the numerous – and often unplanned – transformations that happen in IT.
Enforce and control application SLAs: Ipanema’s direct coupling of business priorities with application delivery over the corporate network enables enterprises to manage application performance from a SLA standpoint: objectives definition; automatic enforcement and finally control of the actual performance. This innovative objective-based way to manage application performance empowers IT with a new mode of interaction with the business, where finally all parties are jointly responsible for the achievements.
