LiveAction released LiveNX 7, featuring advanced management and monitoring of SD-WAN environments, event-driven insights, greater visibility and reporting across the network for on-premise and cloud environments, and tighter integration with IT service management.

LiveNX accelerates the value businesses get from digital transformation by continuously monitoring and validating networking configurations and policies for applications and end users. This provides network engineers and IT operations with the added assurance that comes from proactively identifying and addressing potential issues before they impact a user’s digital experience, resulting in increased productivity and higher customer satisfaction.

“As enterprises move toward software-defined, intent-based networking environments, they need visualization, network analytics, and historical validation beyond the WAN edge,” said Ramesh Prabagaran, Sr. Director of Product Management, SD-WAN at Cisco. “LiveNX leverages a comprehensive integration with Cisco SD-WAN and provides real-time visibility into network service levels and application performance issues along with full-fidelity of past historical data. Customers have used this effectively for root cause analysis and capacity planning.”

New capabilities in LiveNX 7 include:

- Comprehensive SD-WAN Support: Unified network performance management across the entire lifecycle of SD-WAN migrations including support for Cisco SD-WAN (based on Viptela), Cisco IWAN and Cisco Meraki technology.

- Event-Driven Insights via Machine Learning: Building on its machine learning capabilities, LiveInsight features event-driven insights to continuously learn application behavior across the network, spotlight path changes, automate routine tasks, and proactively notify about meaningful changes.

- Endpoint Visibility: To improve visibility and asset management, the new LiveAgent module continuously manages and monitors devices, services, virtual machines, and containers across multi-cloud environments.

- Integration with ServiceNow: Businesses that rely on ServiceNow’s cloud-based platform to automate and optimize businesses processes can take advantage of LiveNX’s integration with ServiceNow. LiveNX automates the incident reporting and management process for faster time to resolution.

- Flexible Deployment with Amazon Web Services (AWS): With LiveNX deployed in AWS, businesses benefit from an elastic cloud computing and storage environments that enables them to more effectively manage and optimize private cloud networks.

- Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE) integration – LiveNX integration with Cisco ISE delivers identity connection, authentication and query support to facilitate the exchange of contextual information with Cisco products that support pxGrid.

- Extended Packet Analysis and Capture integration with Corvil – Together, the complimentary platforms deliver insights from multiple network flow sources and packet-level data. This provides operations teams with increased visibility into their IT networks, along with deeper analytic insights and stronger cybersecurity.

“Realizing the network is a critical source for driving productivity and profitability, businesses are setting their IT agendas to accelerate the adoption of the latest in networking technologies,” said Walter Scott, CEO, LiveAction. “As they do this, they can rely on LiveNX to protect their IT investments and gain advantage through a simple and comprehensive way to manage and monitor network performance.”

In the course of researching, documenting and advising on user experience management needs and directions for more than a decade, I've found myself waging a quiet (and sometimes not so quiet) war with several industry assumptions. Chief among these is the notion that user experience management (UEM) is purely a subset of application performance management (APM). This APM-centricity misses some of UEM's most critical value points, and in a basic sense fails to recognize what UEM is truly about ...

This is the third in a series of three blogs directed at recent EMA research on the digital war room. In this blog, we'll look at three areas that have emerged in a spotlight in and of themselves — as signs of changing times — let alone as they may impact digital war room decision making. They are the growing focus on development and agile/DevOps; the impacts of cloud; and the growing need for security and operations (SecOps) to team more effectively ...

Risk is relative. The Peltzman Effect describes how humans change behavior when risk factors are reduced. They often act more recklessly and drive risk right back up. The phenomenon is recognized by many economists, its effects have been studied in the field of medicine, and I'd argue it is at the root of an interesting trend in IT — namely the increasing cost of downtime despite our more reliable virtualized environments ...
