#####An ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES® (EMA™) White Paper
Network operations teams typically rely on a fragmented set of monitoring and troubleshooting tools, a situation that leads to ineffective management and network instability. IT organizations must adopt a new tool strategy that emphasizes integration, consolidation, and advanced analytics including big data. This strategy should not only focus on improved network operations. Given that network data can provide insight into security operations and business operations as well, network managers should explore how a new tool strategy can contribute to their IT organization as a whole and the business it serves.
