IT and telecoms infrastructure management for armed forces

Netcracker Technology : 10 September, 2007  (Application Story)
US armed forces to deploy NetCracker's enterprise infrastructure management software to optimise IT and external network usage
NetCracker Technology has announced that the US Army and Army National Guard have used its inventory, reconciliation, workflow, and fulfillment capabilities to increase automation, improve the management of IT and Network assets, and provide deconflicted end-to-end resource views.

"We are delighted to work with the Army and Army National Guard on this ground-breaking project that merges the power of IT and Telecom networks using NetCracker's v7.0 automated fulfillment and activation solution," said Andrew Feinberg, President and CEO of NetCracker Technology.

NetCracker's v7.0 platform links to system management servers to gather information about software usage on PCs and servers, manages software licenses, and coordinates that information with network information such as WAN capacity, thus merging the power of both IT and Telecom networks.

The NetCracker Enterprise Infrastructure Management (EIM) solution can enable deployment assistance and IT and Telecom equipment allocation assurance for warfighter troops, ensuring the right equipment for the right mission. When a new service is needed by one of the warfighters, it can now be configured completely before being deployed to the Field. This includes, for example, installing appropriate software on the PC, managing software licenses, and providing WAN connectivity. The warfighter can then use the service immediately.

The NetCracker solution enables real-time IT and Telecom network management, reporting, and automated network-aware process enablement. It communicates with multiple systems management servers that use agents to query software in the IT network to identify installed software and usage data. It also gathers resource inventory data about Telecom network elements and services. These data are then modeled and reconciled to speed service deployment through automation and increased accuracy. This provides an end-to-end view of the actual IT and Telecom resources and eliminates the need to determine status manually.

A Lean Six Sigma workflow application of the EIM solution manages the Army's software license utilization. A NetCracker repository stores software deployment, utilization, and license data. Through an automated workflow process, unused software is removed from the device, and the license is placed in the repository for reuse or elimination. This solution allows the Army to manage tightly its vast numbers of software licenses and reduce new license acquisition costs.
