A globally renowned News and Media company specializes in cable network programming, direct broadcast satellite (DBS), television, new media, and multicultural education. Edin Hodžić, a senior IT systems engineer in the technology and operations department says, "Every needed feature was offered by ManageEngine OpManager on an integrated platform. Being able to create bulk thresholds for device templates made it easier to create and deploy monitors as per the organization's needs. Threshold-based alerting, workflows, and business view maps are the application's most loved features."
Hodžić monitors Hyper-V virtual machines using threshold based alerts; he set up a health monitor for a Dell Equallogic SAN as well as status checks and alerts for Oracle databases. Additionally, Hodžić monitors DNS statuses and file consumption statuses with OpManager. His team has automated Level-1 tasks, like restarting failed services using workflows. "Notification profiles are of utmost importance for the infrastructure's smooth functioning" Hodžić points out. "Insight of power consumption, cooling, and environmental data for the datacenter is a game changer in keeping network uptime. Workflow automation options triggered by event/alarm has turned out to be a big plus for the organization."

Without the information of OpManager, the 40 employees of data center operations and user helpdesk and SAP administration and SAP process design will turn blind.
Thorp Reed’s gradual expansion to the three locations and the resulting addition of networking and server hardware required a monitoring and management solution that could sit at headquarters and tell the IT team what is happening across the whole network.
Randy, Senior System Administrator at Thorp Reed & Armstrong, said "you can’t put a price on the reliability that OpManager has on the alerting capability. I gave that one example, but we’ve had many examples where we’ve had services go down where OpManager has given us the heads–up".
Galaxy, Fiserv Credit Union Division, a renowned comprehensive solutions providers for financial units, uses OpManager for WAN management. Galaxy’s Network Management team chose ManageEngine OpManager to monitor WAN links and critical network services to alert immediately on any service degradations or link outages.
Caria Little, Network Support Supervisor said "We use OpManager to poll all the credit unions and monitor all the routers, circuits etc. Whenever a circuit looses connectivity on the interfaces, OpManager shoots an email alert to us on the connectivity loss instantly with relevant details. Further, we monitor our Exchange server, and critical file servers over the WAN and the response time of the other servers as well."
ERP Suites, established in 2006, is a company with professional expertise in data center operations, JD Edwards Consulting, and Disaster Recovery. The company provides highly personalized, industrial-strength solutions for the world's most demanding business applications and infrastructures.
ERP Suites implemented ManageEngine OpManager for robust, proactive monitoring of the hundreds of Windows, Linux and VMware servers and network devices in their Data center at Loveland, Ohio.
Roumen Ivanov, Senior System Administrator said "Most of the products in the market today are very expensive for the features they offer… Alternatively, products like Nagios or MRTG don't provide complete features to identify bottlenecks. OpManager shows clearly what went wrong and where the problem lies."
"Manageengine has been a great company to work with. Problem resolution has been very quick and professional, and the steady flow of new features has made the software a great investment for us
OpManager and Netflow have made a huge difference to our Network and Systems teams. Before we brought the Manageengine, we were using a number of different monitoring systems depending on the type and brand of equipment being monitored. Obviously this made it difficult to understand large issues that involved multiple systems spread across multiple monitoring systems. Now we have a single application that monitors nearly any piece of equipment we have on our network."
The world's premier online Graduate School, Universitas 21 Global, uses ManageEngine OpManager for proactively monitoring its network infrastructure.
Paul Chan chose ManageEngine OpManager to proactively monitor the infrastructure and maintains a robust preemptive strategy with regards to hardware failure and network outages.
" Since moving to OpManager, reboots, hangs and crashes have reduced so significantly that we now no longer experience such unplanned outages. "
Universitas 21 is an international network of 20 leading research-intensive universities in eleven countries.The network's purpose is to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between the member universities and to create opportunities for them on a scale that none of them would be able to achieve operating independently or through traditional bilateral alliances.
"Prior to the implementation of your software, I had to constantly pull one or more software developers off of projects with high ROI to pinpoint issues related to slowing performance on production programs.
In the 9 months since I implemented OpManager, this has been reduced drastically. We can now monitor and record true performance benchmarks on our production servers, over multiple time frames. This benchmarking has allowed us to set notices for unusual performance and pinpoint when the deviation began. This allows us lead time to address performance issues before the customer ever notices them.
" I have reduced 15% waste of development time by 90%. Now less than 2% of my developer time is lost to emergency repair of performance issues. "
