FNT Software, which provides solutions for the integrated management of IT, data center, and telecommunications infrastructure, released FNT GraphicCenter, which the company describes as “an intelligent solution component for the visualization and analysis of infrastructure and service data.” GraphicCenter integrates with the FNT Command platform and uses technology from yWorks to provide a graphical representation of networks, infrastructures, and services as well as IT assets, resources, and their interrelationships.
“As FNT GraphicCenter makes it easy to identify patterns, analyze faster data, and better understand relationships within infrastructures and networks, companies can make knowledge-based decisions faster and more accurately despite increasing network complexity,” FNT added. “Command enables companies to analyze and plan their hybrid IT, data center, and network infrastructures via a centralized, uniform data model while FNT GraphicCenter allows captured data and relationships to be easily viewed through interactive graphs and diagrams.”
“Maintaining an overview of all relationships and dependencies is essential for the efficient operation and planning of networks and IT infrastructures,” said Steve MacDiarmid, executive managing director, North America, at FNT Software. “By providing detailed graphical visualizations, FNT GraphicCenter makes it easy to plan and analyze data from ever-growing complex structures and mission-critical data relationships.”
Users can access a variety of preconfigured templates for visualization within GraphicCenter, and configure their own visualizations according to their specific needs to support common use cases. Some of these use cases include depicting complex network topologies from various network technologies and layers, and the visualization of an IT application infrastructure with applications, operating systems, and underlying IT server structures.
