People often need a solid justification in terms of return on investment (ROI) while making a purchase decision. With increasing complexity in IT infrastructure, administrators are asked to do more with less, as well as show a tangible ROI for investment made on IT, by rightsizing their network management system. How do you assess the effectiveness of an NMS for higher ROI? A cost-benefit analysis can quantify your total cost of ownership (TCO) and help you to understand the potential long-term benefits.

Organizations implementing network management and monitoring software are experiencing strong ROI, improved data analysis and reporting, and faster time-to-resolution for network issues such as downtime and performance bottlenecks. Determining the right solution for your company not only requires finding a tool that satisfies your current priorities, but also the way it can adapt to your future IT needs.
