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 Relying on outdated information, network engineers often had to repeat tasks which significantly increased time spent on manual labor and overall costs.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.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. DatacenterDynamics is a brand of DCD Group, a global B2B media and publishing company that develops products to help senior professionals in the world's most ICT dependent organizations make risk-based infrastructure and capacity decisions.

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Consumer-driven contracts are an essential part of a mature microservice testing portfolio enabling independent service deployments. In this presentation we'll provide an overview of the tools, patterns and pain points we've seen when implementing contract testing in large development organizations.
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 ...

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
