In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Users of Managed Network Services Are Satisfied Only When Applications Are Performing Well
65% of Organizations Are Using Application Availability and Response Times to Evaluate Quality of Managed Network Services

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/20/08 -- "Managed Network Services: Beyond Cost Savings and Uptime," a benchmark report by Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), found that Best-in-Class organizations are three times more likely to be satisfied with the level of managed network services they are currently using compared to Laggards. Aberdeen's research also revealed that application availability, networking cost, and application response times are the top three indicators that organizations are using when evaluating the quality of managed network services.

The report shows that Best-in-Class organizations reported an 88% average increase in application availability, a 30% average cost savings and all improved application response times for business critical applications by using managed network services.

"Aberdeen's research shows that even though organizations are able to achieve strong benefits from outsourcing network management to a third party, almost a half of these organizations are not fully satisfied with the quality of service that they are receiving," said Bojan Simic, research analyst, Aberdeen. "This is mostly due to the fact that organizational goals for network management are rapidly changing and organizations are expecting more than cost savings and network up-time, but are still struggling to adjust SLAs to help them achieve these newly expanded goals."

Ninety-four percent of Best-in-Class organizations are reporting that they are satisfied with managed network services that they are using, which is mostly due to the fact that these organizations have deployed a mix of solutions that allow them to monitor, analyze and optimize network and application performance.

Aberdeen's research reveals that Best-in-Class organizations are two times more likely to have services and tools for WAN acceleration as compared to all others. The research also shows that Best-in-Class are 65% more likely to use an integrated portal for visibility into all network services as compared to Laggards. This contributed to Best-in-Class being four times more likely to report an improvement in the level of SLA achievements as compared to Laggards.

In this report, Aberdeen used three key performance criteria to distinguish the Best-in-Class from Industry Average and Laggard organizations: application availability, Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) issues with network performance and application response times.

This report is derived from insights provided by 143 end-user organizations worldwide. Findings of this report should serve as guidelines to other end-user organizations that are looking to outsource network management to third party service providers for enabling a seamless access to corporate data while reducing operational cost and improving network up-time.
