Supporting Quotes

  • "Traditional systems management products
    don’t address the complexities of modern data centers. They create
    islands of automation but do not provide a holistic, integrated picture
    of the health of the entire IT stack,” said Richard Sarwal, Oracle
    senior vice president Product Development. “Oracle Enterprise Manager
    11g helps IT deliver greater business value, in addition to greater IT
    efficiency and productivity. With the ability to closely support
    business goals, IT can become a strategic value-add to the success of an
    organization.”
  • “In order to optimize its costs while maintaining the quality of IT
    services… IT will have to behave as a distinct corporate entity — the IT
    enterprise — rather than a pure divisional cost center within the
    enterprise. These new initiatives will require information that supports
    global business-based decisions instead of limited tactical technology
    ones. Consequently, the IT management software market will have to
    evolve from its pure operational role to a more strategic and
    business-oriented one,” as stated in ”Market Projections For 2010: IT
    Management Software,” Forrester Research, Inc., February, 2010.
