Netrounds, the leading provider of active, programmable test and service monitoring solutions, today announced that they have been selected for the EMA Networking Innovator Award for the First Half of 2017 together with their partner CA Technologies for the Predictive Network Analytics solution – Netrounds Active Testing with Network Operations and Analytics from CA Technologies.

In enterprise IT environments, network managers often struggle to gain adequate visibility into the public cloud infrastructure and solutions based on software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). The integration of Netrounds and CA Technologies provides Network Operations and Analytics users with the ability to predict and validate the performance of applications and services. This allows IT teams to focus on value-creating projects with direct business impact, rather than consuming time with complex troubleshooting.

“Network managers spend approximately 71% of their typical workday troubleshooting network problems, either reactively firefighting these issues or working on proactive problem prevention. This situation leaves little time for projects that deliver real value to a business,” said Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst focusing on Network Management for EMA. “The solution from Netrounds and CA provides network managers with much greater insights and allows them to identify blindspots, find and fix problems significantly quicker, cut down on troubleshooting time, and ultimately focus on driving more value for their organizations.”

“Netrounds is very proud to be named an EMA Innovator together with our partner, CA Technologies,” said Mats Nordlund, CEO and co-founder of Netrounds. “This strengthens our position as an innovative leader in automated network test and monitoring. The integration of Netrounds and CA addresses critical end user experience visibility problems and network operations blind spots that enterprises are experiencing today due to a number of factors, like the use of cloud services and public access, for instance.”

The EMA Innovator Awards recognizes products and services that demonstrate true innovation in the IT industry, as well as solve pressing problems for their customers while advancing their respective industries.
