ManageEngine Unveils Ultra-Fast Web Client Fluidic at Cisco Live

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the general availability of the Fluidic, the new web client for its network and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software, OpManager. The new web client is built on APIs and the JavaScript model-view-controller (MVC) platform called Ember.js to help admins get their jobs done faster. The Fluidic also includes several enhancements such as a social wall for IT to simplify collaboration with colleagues using OpManager.

ManageEngine is demonstrating the new features of OpManager at Cisco Live 2014 being held May 18-22, 2014, at Moscone Center in San Francisco. A silver sponsor of the event, ManageEngine is in booth 2205.

Productivity in IT is decided by the IT management solution and the communication platform used by the IT team. The web client of legacy IT management solutions not only offers a poor user experience but is also extremely slow. Even fixing a simple problem is unproductive and time consuming as the IT admin has to navigate across multiple pages and coordinate with various teams.

“iPhones and iPads have raised the user experience to great heights,” said Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine. “As a result, users everywhere have grown intolerant of inferior, inefficient design and get easily irritated when an action takes more than a few seconds or requires multiple clicks to complete. That’s why we gave OpManager a new user interface called the Fluidic. It’s ultra-fast and extremely productive.”

Improving IT Productivity

With OpManager’s Fluidic web client, IT admins and data center admins can navigate across various performance dashboards, monitors, graphs and reports in just a few milliseconds. The Fluidic, combined with social IT for real-time collaboration among IT folks, improves IT productivity of large enterprises and data centers.

The core of the new web client design is the API. OpManager now offers all the APIs required to interact with it via any interface, including iPhone, iPad and web. “We have moved away from the server-side MVC design and adopted the JavaScript-based client-side MVC platform Ember.js and handlebar.js for our new interface,” added Anand. To learn more, see the video at http://www.manageengine.com/network-monitoring/fluidic.html.

Today, enterprises handle 10 times more alarms than they did a decade ago. At $70,000 a year, a systems administrator costs $35 per hour. A 10-member IT team could save $875,000 over 5 years if the user interface for their IT management solution was 25 percent faster. The faster UI would also let them complete their work 25 percent faster, so a task that would typically take eight hours would be completed two hours earlier using the faster UI.

In addition to the Fluidic UI and social wall for IT, OpManager 11.3 enhancements include a custom report builder, a heat map widget with live health status of devices, multi-color graphs built on rickshaw.js, HTML5-based workflow, rack and floor builders, QR codes for asset tracking built on qrcode.js, and support for keyboard shortcuts built on keboard.js.

Pricing and Availability

OpManager 11.3 with the Fluidic web client is immediately available for download at http://www.manageengine.com/network-monitoring/download.html. OpManager starts at $1,995 for 50 devices. Existing OpManager customers can apply the service pack and update to the latest version.
