Netcool itself started becoming less effective, we need to see more radical innovation in this area.
Back in 2004 after years of going from strength to strength with Netcool, the world of computer infrastructure started to change radically rather than by slow evolution. With the introduction of things like Virtualisation, B2B gateways (into other companies) etc we were seeing a massive increase in challenges like complexity, dynamic constant change in the infrastructure and lack of viability into the infrastructures of our partners, who provided key elements of our customers applications. The result of all these revolutionary changes in our infrastructure was that Netcool itself started becoming less effective, and hence we started to see a swing back to reactive management at the expense of proactive. I believe we need to see far more radical innovation in this area.
