Amritsar, NFAPost: US-headquartered information technology firm Park Place Technologies has announced developing a new Park View business unit and full suite of managed services on the company’s flagship ParkView platform, to empower customers to efficiently discover, monitor, support and optimise (DMSO) their IT infrastructure and cloud computing environments.
“Managing IT infrastructures has become more complex as companies support platforms on-premises, in public and private clouds, at the edge and networks and operation centers that span the globe,” Park Place Technologies President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Adams, said.
Chief Analyst for enterprise IT at London-based research and consultancy firm Omdia said that the industry is facing a great challenge in adapting to the new reality of remote and hybrid workforces and one of the implications of this is that there will be significant pressure on IT budgets.
“Omdia forecasts that 2020 IT budget spending will be -2.87% lower than 2019. Therefore, adopting a new approach to manage the infrastructure and optimising it to deliver a better service at lower cost will be key criteria for CIOs. Omdia considers that the new DMSO category will help companies ensure their infrastructure and costs can sustain business in the new era of work and be prepared for the next crisis when it inevitably comes.”
According to US-based market research company International Data Corporation, DMSO is a market opportunity that is likely to expand to $228 billion annually by 2023.
The new services within the ParkView unit include:
ParkView DiscoveryTM – A managed service platform that provides customers with a holistic, accurate listing of all infrastructure center assets within their IT environments and across all OEMs. The service provides automated IT asset discovery and dependency mapping, comprehensive coverage of servers (physical, virtual & cloud), desktops, peripherals, and edge devices. Customers can view assets by class (server, storage, networking), OEM or serial number, and take advantage of over 25 out-of-box integrations with leading ITSM and CMDB software products. With ParkView Discovery, customers can reduce software licensing costs and maintenance costs.
ParkView Network Analytics™ (PVNA) – Leverages cloud to bring Entuity’s core features, which provides real-time visualisation for trouble-shooting of application network paths, to customers via a Park Place managed service. As part of the service Park Place Engineers will perform administration of the OS and application and ensure that device and path changes are performed properly. With Park Place taking responsibility for care and feeding of the application and infrastructure, customers are able to focus on managing their network and not another tool.
ParkView Network Analytics provides a clear focus on maintaining VPN performance, which is critical to ensure that end-users working remotely remain as productive as if they were in the office. PVNA’s proactive monitoring will show where more VPN tunnels are needed to accommodate users, guaranteeing everyone can be productive 24/7.
ParkView OS Monitoring™ – A managed solution for server and storage monitoring at the software level to include Linux, Windows, and VM.
The company said that ParkView Discovery and ParkView Network Analytics are available now, while ParkView OS Monitoring will be available in November 2020.
