Master the deployment of network applications and develop a model for previewing how they will effect the network after they are addedLearn how to create a model for analyzing the impact of adding applications to a network Bridge the communications gap between application developers and network managers by identifying specific responsibilities in capacity planning Identify and justify the need for tools, like simulation tools, that can be expensive to employ, but are vital in dealing with over-utilized networks
Networked Applications Management introduces you to the methods, services, and tools needed to make collaborative management decisions about how to address application issues within a network. It is about creating a network modeling system that helps managers understand how new applications being rolled out or upgraded will perform after they are added or changed. Through the careful management of networked applications, enterprises can gain a competitive advantage by maximizing productivity and user satisfaction, while minimizing resource usage and virtually eliminating any infighting between technology groups. The book covers the four essential processes: Application Profiling, Network Baselining, Capacity Planning, and Deployment Planning. Each of these sections describes the procedure for performing the task under consideration and discusses the motivation for doing it, the inputs required for each effort (including discussion of insourcing vs. outsourcing the actual work), and the outputs they are supposed to produce. After the services have been presented, the tools are introduced, along with strategies for training staff members. The book then provides sample deliverables: network baseline, application profiling, capacity planning, and troubleshooting reports and a sample Deployment Plan. The book ends with a case study that brings all this learning together.
