WASHINGTON (07/28/2000) - 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.
