Wouldn’t you like an assistant that doesn’t break the household budget? That’s one of the reasons I like Siri on my iPhone. But what I really like about this feature is the fact that it’s completely integrated with the OS. Applications that are integrated tightly with the OS provide a seamless user experience because you don’t have to re-perform tasks in each app.

Yeah… In general, an integrated experience is usually well designed for personal devices like the PC, tablets or smart phones.gak1_2.jpg But shouldn’t this experience be translated to larger domains – such as business applications, network management and even graphic design?

If you take the paradigm of integration between apps and an OS and translate it to something bigger like network management, the paradigm just falls apart. Why? If you focus on what’s used for the campus/branch, one might find a tool for the wireless network, a tool for the wired network, a tool for network access control, a tool to manage a discrete network device, and perhaps a new tool to manage the access of mobility devices, and on and on. You have no visibility into how one aspect of the network affects the other and the applications, especially those from different vendors and even apps from the same vendor, do not interoperate with each other. The sheer number of required toolsets cloud visibility causing it to be very difficult to correlate the information between all of the tools and find the root cause to fix the underlying issue. This is far from a seamless experience. Are you having issues correlating information from different management applications?

The market continues to offer a fragmented approach for network management by delivering separate management tools for different aspects of the network, which all lends to a poor operations experience. We offer a different strategy with HP Intelligent Management Center, designed to simplify the network management experience and consolidates these discrete tools found across the network. It is a unified management solution based on a platform (liken to an OS) in which modules (like applications) can plug into. The solution provides a seamless experience across various management functions.

Focusing on the campus network for a bit, management across wired and wireless networks are unified within IMC saving precious time when triaging situations, such as slow user access, all because IMC provides improved visibility across many network management functions.\

Contains a number of tools. The one you want to run is iwconfig, which gives a lot of info on the interface. It may already be on your system if you're using a wireless card. It's a pretty common package on most systems now.
Iwconfig gives you this info:

How safe is it to do banking on company computer

The banks say when I log into my acct, data is encrypted and secure that no third party can view it. Does that mean even when my company IT has access to my company, with tools like Remote Management on XP, they can't see what I'm doing on my bank accts while I'm logged in?
The bank also warns me that if I download a pdf copy of my statement, a copy might be cached somewhere on my PC. If I go to IE's Option and choose to delete all temp files, does this action deletes the pdf file? Is it likely that my company's network server, something like IIS Server maybe, also gets ho

Where I think you'd start is Microsoft System Center Software and Site Management software. These would provide the tools to set your types of monitoring criteria, the type of display, the frequency of display update, etc. Along with alarms, alarm forwarding, and all of the rest.
In the past, it was quite easy to go into many types of operations centers and actually view real-time graphs, meters, dynamic charts, and more on all types of automated and manual data and technical centers
