Network management platforms assist companies to deploy network infrastructure effectively, access user information rapidly, track system health, troubleshoot problems, protect against and react to threats, and optimize performance. Network management systems can spot inefficient or improper uses of network resources like streaming multimedia or peer-to-peer file sharing that can burn up bandwidth, reduce employee productivity or allow data leaks. A prudently planned network management environment can also help companies to make informed capacity planning decisions by surfacing trends in resource usage for various times or tasks.

Network management platforms can allow organizations to be aware of current network usage and intelligently plan for future capacity increases. Management utilities can also be used to detect poor or improper uses of system resources, such as streaming multimedia, peer-to-peer sharing, etc. that can waste valuable and limited network bandwidth. A carefully designed network management plan can also assist companies to arrive at informed decisions on WAN and LAN enhancements once they recognize how much system bandwidth historically required at various times.

Putting an efficient network management solution in place beforehand is critical to avoid major disruptions that can follow Denial Of Service (DoS) attacks and dangerous viruses. These assaults can leave the network unstable and without proper utilities it can be difficult, if not virtually impossible, to discover the source of the problem.
