Eirteic Teams With Watch4Net to Offer Cost-Effective Alternative for InfoVista Users

APG Migration Provides a Unified Network View, Solid Software Foundation, Integration With Existing Network Management Platforms and World-Renowned Service and Support

CORK, IRELAND--(Marketwire - October 30, 2007) - Eirteic Consulting, a leading provider of quality network and service management solutions, and Watch4Net Solutions, a leading provider of performance management and reporting, today announced the Automated Performance Grapher (APG) migration for InfoVista users. The migration offer combines Watch4Net's APG unified data collection solution with Eirteic's integration, training and support, to offer faster reporting capabilities -- hours vs. days -- better scalability, lower cost-of-ownership and expert installation.

Drawing upon the recently announced global partnership agreement (see Sept. 10, 2007 news release: Watch4Net Selects Eirteic Consulting as First Global Partner), Eirteic and Watch4Net have now fully integrated their installation, support services and APG unified data collection solution respectively, to offer InfoVista users a better way to manage their complex infrastructure as an integrated system rather than sets of seemingly unrelated silos.

Compared to InfoVista, APG offers:

--  Unified Network View - APG adds intelligence to the delivery of
    business critical IT services by providing a unified view across network
    devices.
--  Proven Architecture - Distributed lightweight processes at all levels
    (collection, persistence and reporting) for better scalability and
    reliability.
--  No Double-Polling - APG synchronizes with EMS/NMS to mine data -- thus
    avoiding double-polling and automatically provisioning reports.
--  Quick Integration - APG enables seamless integration with network
    management platforms such as CA's Spectrum, EMC Smarts, HP OpenView and IBM
    Tivoli Netcool/Precision.
--  Automatic Provisioning of Network Devices and Reports - Adapts
    automatically to existing infrastructure.
--  Lower Total-Cost-of-Ownership - Single database maintenance compared
    to InfoVista's multiple databases.
    

Watch4Net's proven APG solution combined with Eirteic's world-renowned installation, service and support, offers a compelling reason for any organization seeking to improve the delivery of IT business services.
