EMA dialogs with network executives are consistently beginning to underscore an unusual and seemingly contradictory truth:  Network Operations and Engineering stand at once in the “center of the IT universe,” and yet are sometimes treated as an organizational backwater.   There are multiple reasons for this, chief among them those cultural and political traditions in many IT organizations that tend to subvert the fact that the network has become a core strategic resource. The good news is that EMA sees these prejudices slowly receding as networking begins to take center stage in monitoring and automating critical lifecycle processes.    

This report provides strong evidence that the industry is seeing a shift towards a more central role for networking --in terms of both managing application services and managing the integrated infrastructure overall.  And, since ultimately service and network lifecycle management need to be understood holistically, the report then addresses network lifecycle management in conjunction with ITIL v3’s approach to Service Lifecycle Management. The report concludes with an assessment of HP’s capabilities to deliver on the promise of Network Lifecycle Management in conjunction with broader IT and business requirements.
