SevOne NPM v6.5 - Now Generally Available

By Mandy Reyes posted Wed April 26, 2023 10:20 AM


Today, we're excited to announce the release of version 6.5 of IBM SevOne Network Performance Management (NPM), providing application-centric, hybrid network observability. This release extends the monitoring of modern, software-defined and wifi-enabled networks to include support for public cloud infrastructure – all in a single dashboard. 

With the addition of cloud monitoring for AWS, users now have insight at their fingertips of the network they own along with the one they don't. As organizations migrate workloads to the cloud, they can report on how the migration is going and compare on-premises performance to that of AWS. The team is very excited about this release and the new visibility and efficiencies our clients will gain. Please see the full release notes for more details about this latest version, and drop your comments and congratulations to the team in the discussion.
