Here is our gathering of this week’s news bits around Infrastructure Management, SNMP,  Network Management and related topics.

… SevOne Announced it Joins the Alcatel-Lucent OSS Connected Partner Program, and that it completed certification testing with the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM). That will allow SevOne to to provide carriers with end-to-end performance metrics in the SevOne platform and Alcatel-Lucent customers using 5620 SAM to easily integrate it with SevOne platform. Win-win situation for both partners, right?

… ManageEngine announced Site24x7 Benchmarks, a free Web Site monitoring Service that lets you benchmark the performance of your web site and compare it with the top players in your industry. The Site24x7 Benchmarks service is available immediately, free of charge. This space is getting crowded lately I noticed. I have already included in the SNMPCenter Directory another product, Anturis, a cloud based offering, and of course we have the likes of PRTG, Solarwinds offering these capabilities. I believe that there is room for smaller focused players in this area, so I will be watching this area in the coming days and report back.

… Solarwinds announced that Fortune included SolarWinds in its 100 Fastest-Growing Companies list for the third year in a row. Fortune compiles this list of publicly traded companies based on a formula that factors in revenue growth rates, earnings per share growth rate and three-year annualized total return. Definetely Solarwinds seems to be the most sucessful company in the infrastructure management industry sector.

… Ericsson announced its intention to acquire GEOSS, an operations support systems (OSS) consulting company based in Germany. The acquisition, which is subject to regulatory approval, further strengthens Ericsson’s already industry-leading position in OSS for communications service providers. Ericsson intends to take over the entire staff and management of 30 people.

NICE announced that it has deployed its Safe City solution in Nanded, India, a city with over half a million citizens. NICE’s solution provides Nanded’s law enforcement agencies real-time situational awareness for both day-to-day operations and disaster handling.
