Global Management Systems Inc., an information technology consulting firm
specializing in network and systems integration services, announced last
week an alliance targeting the federal marketplace with Visionael Corp.,
a knowledge management solutions provider.
GMSI, based in Bethesda, Md., already boasts an impressive list of federal
customers, including the Pentagon, the Army, the Navy and the Commerce Department.
It will now be able to offer knowledge management network solutions in the
federal market, said GMSI's director of business development, Dale Vogel.
"Visionael network management software and the GMSI staff of proven network
management consultants allows companies to manage network resources across
the life cycle of the network, supporting the planning, design, building,
provisioning and operation of complex networks," Vogel said. "Together,
these features create a solution that reduces the time needed to implement
and track network changes."
Visionael's Network Knowledge Management solution includes full documentation
of the physical and logical network combined with customizable workflow
processes to manage the evolution of a network.
The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company's federal customers include the Defense
Information Systems Agency, the Pentagon, the Army, the Navy, the Justice
Department and the Internal Revenue Service.
The alliance will enable both companies' federal and commercial customers
to monitor and manage their network assets.
"This allows our customers to have an auto-discovered database of their
network assets and to visualize those assets where they physically reside
in their buildings and on their sites," said Tom Reed, president of GMSI.
