New Report Highlights the Role of DDI in Driving Efficiencies and Cost Savings; Positions BlueCat Networks as a Top Choice for DDI
Toronto, Canada – January 10, 2012 – BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence™ company, will host a live webinar on January 19 featuring Forrester Research, Inc. to discuss the “Five Reasons DDI is Critical to the Network.”
“Much of IP, Dynamic Host Communication Protocol (DHCP), Domain Name Services(DNS) management requires too much hand holding; administrators spend time allocating addresses, capturing unused ones, uploading new records, or checking for errors,” wrote Andre Kindness, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. in a December 7, 2011 blog post¹. “On average, it takes two days to allocate a set of addresses for the deployment of new servers when it’s 5 minutes of work.”
A December 2011 report² from Forrester provides guidance on why organizations should move off spreadsheets or a homegrown DDI solution and surveys the top commercial DDI solution vendors.
In the BlueCat Networks webinar, guest speaker Andre Kindness will share key findings from the Forrester Research report “An Infrastructure Can Only Be As Efficient As DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management” (December 2, 2011) including what to look for in a DDI solution and the capabilities that make BlueCat Networks a top choice for DDI.
“We are pleased that BlueCat Networks is positioned as a top DDI solution in the recent Forrester Research report,” said Michael Hyatt, CEO and Co-Founder of BlueCat Networks. “Our IP Address Management solutions not only deliver the automation and intelligence needed to build a more flexible and efficient network, they also provide a critical foundation for helping organizations keep pace with emerging business and IT priorities such as the cloud, virtualization, IPV6 and DNSSEC.”
