Watch4net’s Testimonial


“Current economic conditions are affecting healthcare providers in terms of limited personnel and budget constraints,” said Bob Swann, Executive Director, IT Operations, Clarian Health. An industry typically marked by growth is starting to feel the effects of the economic slowdown. Senior level executives are being tasked to run leaner organizations with fewer resources and still maintain a premier level of patient care. Watch4net APG Software Suite marries process with technology, helping managers drive business growth, manage costs, and deliver higher levels of performance, despite current market conditions.


We determined that the lack of tools to look at time based performance was impacting our business from a historical analysis perspective as well as limiting our ability to do effective capacity planning. After an installation of APG Software Suite onto EMC SMARTS servers, we were producing graphs and reports that were emailed to various managers at Clarian Health within a few hours. APG Software Suite has been a powerful tool in our capacity planning and ability to create highly customized reports.


The performance reporting and analysis now available to us through the addition of the APG Software Suite to our EMC/SMARTS installation has provided us with immediate benefits of real-time, historical and projected visibility on our network and IT infrastructure.
