"With its focus on converged management, CA Technologies is clearly one of the top vendors in the data center market, so it's a natural progression to anchor our practice with such an important solution."
As an initial stage to the multi-phased roll-out, Westcon will immediately offer CA Nimsoft Monitor, – a unified IT monitoring solution available either on-demand via SaaS or on-premise. CA Nimsoft Monitor helps improve service quality and reduce the costs of IT service delivery by providing the visibility today's companies require to proactively monitor and manage performance and availability across complex environments.
