BT launches services for corporate customers
Manama, December 11, 2008
BT has announced the launch of two new services, a new fully-managed wide area network (WAN) optimisation service and a new applications performance monitoring service.
The services offer corporate customers the chance to improve application performance, boost productivity and maximise return on investments in IT and network resources.
The new WAN optimisation service speeds the performance of applications between data centres, remote offices and mobile workers by five to 50 times and in some cases up to 100 times.
It enables organisations to overcome a host of severe problems, including poor application performance and more effective use of IT and network resources at remote sites.
The applications performance monitoring service allows IT directors to ensure that vital applications perform according to required service levels.
By centrally installing a device in the data centre, it measures response times between user, server and application, providing accurate measures even for remote locations without the need for physical devices at each user location.
It provides online businesses with critical measures by analysing individual page load times, giving instant feedback of the performance of online services.
This is of key importance for e-commerce and e-banking organisations. The service can also be used on a growing number of specialist application environments from various vendors.
'As enterprises look to be more efficient with fewer resources and finances, a managed service environment relieves them of the challenges surrounding the management of multiple vendors,' said BT network services vice-president Jean-Noel Moneton.
'The services are the latest additions to our Applications Assured Infrastructure portfolio, which is a set of repeatable managed services that audit, monitor and optimise the performance of applications throughout their life cycle.'-TradeArabia News Service
