The Benefits of Network Mapping


Having an accurate depiction of your network is a fundamental prerequisite to being able to successfully handle system management, troubleshooting and growth. With the advent of network mapping tools, this process has become more simplified.At the dawn of computer networking, interconnected systems were often contained to a building, if not a single room. But today’s corporate networks span cities, countries, and the globe.

This complexity has made network management an increasingly difficult task.

We couldn’t agree more BUT, whilst such techniques may map the network, they do not measure how robust that network [system] is.

Ontonix have the ability to provide this type of capability on an ongoing basis, in real-time, to monitor the interactions and how robust or fragile the system is.

Essentially, by analysing and assessing the operational effectiveness of the system,  the current level and upper limit of complexity within the system are provided. This serves as a means of early warning for the system owner or operator – “crisis anticipation

Q – Are we becoming too Complex for our own good?

  1. Complexity will be 10x more complex in two years then it is today.  Both Software and Hardware are evolving at similar paces.  So complexity will be greater, but ability to cope with keep up.  Require a lot of “reframing”.
  2. Service Providers will have to fill the void by added value to help decipher the complexity.
  3. Hiring Experts – be it user agents, bots or service providers will likely become even more pronounced.  New opportunities and solutions will emerge to solve the new level of complexities.
