How Systemwalker Works

Systemwalker products are integrated into the Systemwalker Framework, a system management infrastructure that includes a management information repository that is shared by all products. These include products that support complete lifecycle management and most categories of service management, and can be grouped by the ways they compliment each other to aid your company in various operations:

Lifecycle management

Job management

Performance management

Web-based SSO management

An e-business portal infrastructure that provides multiple levels of security for information assets while offering single sign-on and personalized interfaces.

Web browser interface support

You can access Systemwalker functions either from the Systemwalker console or from a browser. The ability to access Systemwalker through a browser enables network managers to perform job monitoring and job management from anywhere at anytime. This feature is of particular importance for companies that outsource management of their IT systems and for service providers that offer system management services.
