Codima Inc. (OTC: CDMA) Launches Robust IT Network Discovery and Enhanced VLAN Discovery Enabling Cost Efficient IT Asset Management
PHILADELPHIA, PA. - July 17, 2008 - Codima, Inc. (OTC: CDMA) a global provider of best practice software tools for VoIP and IT Asset Management today announced the introduction of new additions to its flagship IT Asset tool autoMap(TM). The enhanced Network Inventory and Visualization solution encompasses VLAN discovery with ease and speed, extended support to over 4,500 device types and robust IT network discovery.
Automated IT network discovery seeks to radically improve cost efficiency, eliminate time-consuming manual tasks and increase accuracy. The new enhanced autoMap(TM) version introducing robust IT Network Discovery allows IT managers to clearly identify IT assets and to discover VLAN's with speed and ease. These enhancements create a powerful tool for baselining business critical enterprise IT networks, performing network auditing and ensure compliance with corporate governance.
Codima Discovery Engine(TM) conducts the discovery process, detecting unmanaged and managed devices on any IT network. The comprehensive discovery process supports over 4,500 devices types and supplies extensive information on what IT Assets are installed in any IT infrastructure. A true time saver, the automated discovery provides an accurate inventory simplifying budgeting and network auditing.
Leveraging the unique ability to visualize any IT network directly with Microsoft® Office Visio®, autoMap(TM) creates network topology drawings and VoIP topology views that can be displayed on a webpage and shared between colleagues. The visual overview gives a broader user base within an organization access to IT Asset information and makes complex information easy to present to others facilitating IT planning and decision making.
autoMap(TM) also runs discoveries across multiple IT networks from one single point. The Multi Site Scheduler has proven to be a useful function for NOCs (Network Operations Centers) and MSP (Managed Service Providers) who need to provide network topology maps and asset reports that their clients can access from a web server.
"Our customers rely on autoMap(TM) to bring visibility into their IT networks and to manage their network auditing. autoMap(TM) get high scores for its ability to identify IT assets, and with the new Robust IT Network Discovery and VLAN discovery our customer are even better equipped to improve their IT Asset Management." said Christer Mattsson, CEO of Codima Inc.
