While it’s tempting to make fun of it, the reality is that Excel is a pretty good tool to consolidate the data from your network in one place, analyze it, generate reports, and much more. Unfortunately, importing data from network appliances into Excel is a laborious, manual process and keeping the data up-to-date is almost impossible.

Imagine this scenario. It is a Wednesday morning and as the network administrator responsible for servicing business applications, you are processing a series of support tickets that arrived in the past few hours and the previous day. One of the high severity items on your plate this morning is from an application team that has been debugging poor performance of a business critical application. They have received complaints from end users and the line-of-business manager is concerned about potential revenue impacts. The application team has been frantically looking at their logs and haven’t quite pinned down the problem.

Beyond configuring application services such as load balancing, IT pros find that they need to invest in a whole bunch of tools when servicing their internal customers' needs for application troubleshooting and performance data. These include tools to gain visibility into the end user experience for that application, network monitoring tools, aggregation taps, and application performance monitoring solutions.  The painful task of piecing together data from such disparate point solutions takes several days if not weeks and does not present a reliable or repeatable process for IT and operations teams. On the other hand, the application owners are left waiting for data that they need quickly to debug issues.
