Today, networks and distributed computing resources are increasingly vital resources for most organizations. Without effective control, these resources do not provide the payback that corporate management requires. In some cases, the disruption of a network can mean disruption of business. Therefore, the network management becomes a critical issue for organizations.
Recently, computing network management is ranked as the most important area of Information Systems Management by Australian and New Zealand companies. It involves the planning, organizing, monitoring, accounting, and controlling of network activities and resources.
Literature researched in this paper has traced the concepts of network management. Relatively, this paper is not technically oriented. This is because today's problems associated with the management of complex network systems cannot be solved by technology alone. Instead, a balanced synergy of organizational, human, and the technical components should lead to a gradual solution of urgent requirements. All these components will be addressed in this paper.
