Top 5 Network Performance Management Mistakes & How to Avoid Them

For IT departments tasked to do more with less, spending massive amounts of time on unplanned work caused by unsuccessful network performance management has become a huge burden. In fact, IT organizations typically spend anywhere from 60% to 85% of their time doing unplanned work, most of which involves reactive, time-consuming troubleshooting. This takes a big bite out of the time that an IT organization can spend focused on more strategic projects and activities.

Specifically, today's IT environments suffer from five common network performance management mistakes:

  1. Focusing on change management procedures but not managing change proactively
  2. Making most changes manually, with little or no automation
  3. Segregating network performance management and network change management teams and tools
  4. Giving greater network configuration and administration access to extended IT staff than is really needed for them to do their jobs
  5. Having little or no understanding of the impact of a single configuration change, both to device neighbors and overall network performance
This whitepaper will look at each of these issues and discuss how IT organizations can get ahead of the curve by automating network management and giving the appropriate level of visibility to different levels of IT staff.
