Visionael Partners With Government Solution Providers to Manage Network Inventory for Federal Intelligence Agencies

Visionael's Network Resource Manager Tracks Network Inventory in Real-Time for Increased Efficiency, Resource Allocation and Cost Savings

Visionael Corporation, a leading provider of next-generation service automation and delivery management software and services, today announced its partnership with Government Solution Providers (GSP), a telecommunications reseller and contractor for the defense and intelligence customer community. Through this partnership, two premiere government intelligence agencies are now using Visionaels Network Resource Manager (NRM) to track network inventory in real-time, providing significant cost savings through improved resource allocation and reduced labor.

In my 30 years of government experience, Visionael was the first to provide a product with real-time inventory and positive control over all network assets, said John Curtis, president and owner of Government Solution Providers. This is especially critical in the government sector where agencies have accreditation responsibilities; they can easily identify and prove what equipment they currently have and what they need. Im a firm believer in the NRM as a powerful management tool for budgeting, planning for growth and expansion as well as justifying manpower.

GSP worked with two of its intelligence agency customers to deploy Visionaels NRM, a single, server-based application which manages IT assets throughout the network lifecycle. Both agencies were experiencing difficulty managing their networks. Multiple groups were responsible for different aspects of the network and changes to the inventory were not centrally recorded. Relying on outdated information, network engineers often had to repeat tasks which significantly increased time spent on manual labor and overall costs.

Now, these agencies rely on Visionaels NRM to provide an up-to-date central repository of all network data. Using the NRM workflow engine, the agencies network administrators can create a configuration control process to systematically manage the entire inventory throughout each stage of the project at hand. To ensure accuracy, Visionaels NRM monitors network equipment and checks the actual inventory against the repository. It automatically reconciles the inventory list to reflect the current inventory status, providing live, real-time network data.

Government agencies face the challenge of scarce resources both in terms of people and assets, said Craig Nichols, president and CEO of Visionael. Our NRM enables government agencies to better leverage the equipment they already have and spend less man hours tracking and managing it. Government Solutions Providers is a key player in this market and we look forward to a long and mutually successful relationship with them.

The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
