NetMRI Switch Port Management Optimizer

Empowered’s NetMRI Switch Port Management Optimizer Solution is specially designed to support NetMRI customers with complex networking environments who need to improve collaboration and efficiencies across their teams. Their processes and the workflows used for switch port management are not efficiently automated and / or assigned to the right personnel. In order to reduce time and cost, you must effectively utilize appropriate skills to eliminate bottlenecks and improve the quality and auditing of your work.

Some common challenges:

  • Responsibility for ten or more switch port changes, per day, where workflow constraints, longer execution times and frustrated users are present
  • A lack of time and expertise where many high-volume network operational tasks could be improved through effective workflow optimization
  • In instances where volumes increase, user access and inefficiencies become compromised and increase business risk

Solution Description
Business Outcomes
  • Are you doing more than 10 switch port changes per day using a manual a process that is limiting productivity with constrained workflows, long execution times, resulting in frustrated users?
  • Are you limited in your ability to delegate operational tasks to the appropriate role, resulting in human errors, rework and delays?
  • Are your network switch port changes being administered by engineers or teams that may not be the most appropriate group to process the change?
  • Are your existing manual switch port management tasks being completed by teams one or more steps removed from the ownership of the actual deliverable?
  • Are your switch port changes are being executed by teams other than the teams requesting the change?
  • Do you have an easy way to audit your switch port changes and their approvals?
  • Is your role-based access to NetMRI limiting your ability perform switch port changes effectively and efficiently?
  • Are you concerned about the risks associated with exposing a user’s access to the full network?
