Managing global networks running on multiple platforms will cost a fortune unless it is done over the Internet, according to Computer Associates' president and chief operating officer Sanjay Kumar.
In his keynote speech at the Networld+Interop show in Las Vegas yesterday, Kumar told delegates that security, constant changes of infrastructure and lack of bandwidth all contribute to skyrocketing costs. "Costs are in people, platforms and rare skills," he said. "CA has examined customers, like Xerox and MCI, and what is missing is end-to-end management of systems."
Kumar claimed that CA?s Unicenter system management product is one of the few ways companies can address the cost and management problems they face. He claimed that policy-based management, which divides networking resources into categories, such as geographical region or manufacturing process, is the most effective approach. The cause of most of the problems, the Internet, is also the best platform to manage those problems, Kumar concluded.
Forrester Research estimates that 66 per cent of the cost of corporate network ownership is wrapped up in administration.
