Trinagy assists MAN Technologies in achieving demonstrable cost reductions through network optimisation

Maidenhead, Berkshire, UK – Trinagy International, a specialist in the field of web-based performance management software for enterprises, service providers and carriers, has announced the implementation of its TREND software at MAN Technologies AG in Germany. The aerospace concern, a key supplier for the ARIANE-5 programme, is using the software to optimise both network and hardware resources deployed on its extended network and is already achieving demonstrable cost reductions. With Trinagy’s performance management software in place, data is first collected from around 2,000 active network components, analysed and finally displayed in reports specifically designed for MAN Technologies. One particularly valuable feature incorporated within the Trinagy solution is historical trending functionality. In combination with predictive tools, the solution provides information for IT management to more accurately plan future network expansion.

Trinagy’s family of software solutions are designed to allow organisations working in major networking environments with a valuable insight into the activity of their network, the optimisation of real-time resources and the ability to accurately predict future network requirements. With one keystroke, users can pull down the desired reports. Even the configuration of non-standard reports using Java or HTML is easy using a web browser on any computer on the network.

“We are using TREND at our head office in Augsburg and at five further sites. Our 1,100 or so members of staff are linked to one another by means of 60 servers,” explains Markus Haug, who is responsible for network administration at MAN Technologies. “Using Trinagy’s software has finally made our whole network more transparent, we have been able to keep to service level agreements without any problems since deployment and no less important is the fact that we are also saving on staff and equipment costs.”

MAN Technologies uses TREND in a wide variety of server environments when developing demanding projects, such as rocket components or fuel systems for aircraft. At head office, around 800 members of staff are connected to the LAN. At five further sites, 300 users link up via the WAN.

Simplicity was the great advantage when it came to choosing Trinagy above competing providers: intuitive user interfaces, administration via the web, easy configuration of non-standard reports, whilst offering a turnkey solution containing numerous modules, all pointed to the selection of Trinagy.

“MAN Technologies has been searching for a scalable, flexible product with an open architecture which would allow simple and rapid network administration. Trinagy was able to deliver an offering that satisfied all these requirements,” says Paul Donovan, International Managing Director of Trinagy. “We are very pleased that TREND is used in such a crucial implementation by one of the main suppliers of the European aerospace programme. This proves the high quality of the TREND solution with regard to reliability, flexibility and extreme scalability, whilst at the same time guaranteeing that the complex network administration requirements of the enterprise will not only be met, but will be surpassed far into the future.”
