Network management tools help organizations to implement infrastructure effectively, access client details rapidly, monitor network operation, debug problems, protect against and react to threats, and optimize responsiveness. Network management systems can spot inefficient or improper uses of network resources such as streaming multimedia or peer-to-peer file sharing that can burn up bandwidth, lower worker productivity or enable data leaks. A prudently planned network management environment can also help organizations to make smart network enhancement moves by exposing trends in network usage for various times or types of activities.

Network management platforms can help IT administrators to be aware of current system usage and intelligently plan for future capacity expansion. Management tools can also be deployed to detect poor or improper utilization of network services, for example streaming video, peer-to-peer sharing, etc. that can use up valuable and scarce network bandwidth. A well planned network management strategy can also help organizations to make informed decisions on network upgrades after they recognize the amount of system bandwidth actually required at any one time.

Putting an efficient network management system in operation ahead of time is vital to avoid severe problems that can follow Denial Of Service (DoS) attacks and dangerous viruses. These assaults can leave the network unstable and in the absence of appropriate tools it can be time consuming, if not virtually impossible, to discover the source of the trouble.
