Expert Insights: Rethinking Your Network Operations Toolset as Cisco Prime End of Life Arrives


For more than a decade, Cisco Prime Infrastructure was a leading solution for managing, monitoring, and troubleshooting Cisco-based networks. Now Cisco has initiated end-of-life plans for Cisco Prime. The company is encouraging customers to migrate to its new network management solution, DNA Center (DNAC). Rather than select the default option, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) research makes it clear that customers with multi-vendor networks should treat this moment as an inflection point where they take a comprehensive look at their overall network operations toolset.

The typical network operations teams use four to 15 tools to manage and monitor infrastructure. This fractured approach to operations often leads to inefficiencies and errors. With Cisco Prime exiting the industry, network managers should look for ways to consolidate and optimize their entire toolset.

In this webinar, EMA Vice President of Research Shamus McGillicuddy and OpenText Team Leader, ITOM Cloud Product Marketing, Jon Kies will discuss:

  • Why you need to take a new approach to network tools
  • Insights from your network management peers who are planning a Cisco Prime replacement
  • What features and functionality you should look for in your next network management solution
