Create a network plan automatically and save time

November 21, 2019

Our IT networks are constantly changing: old systems are being dismantled, new ones are being added and some services are being moved to the cloud. It’s damn hard for an IT admin to keep track of things. An aid would actually be a current network plan. Actually, because who has the time to create a new network plan every time a change is made? Entering the new systems into an inventory list is still largely done. But even the removal of the old systems is often postponed. And the creation or updating of the network plan usually falls completely behind. With all the daily business this is no wonder. Which IT admin can complain about a lack of tasks or even boredom? On the contrary, overtime, working late into the night and on weekends are unfortunately part of everyday life for most IT administrators. There isn’t much time left for such time-consuming administrative tasks as creating network plans. Even if they were very important. The majority of admins use Microsoft Visio to create network plans, because the display is nice and clear. But unfortunately it has to be drawn completely manually, which is very time-consuming.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a “magic network plan” that doesn’t become outdated and always updates itself?

Docusnap creates network plans automatically and recurrently

There is!

Docusnap saves you a lot of time and effort. It inventories your entire IT environment automatically and recurrently and creates network plans, routing plans, topology plans etc. based on this always up-to-date data. Intelligent layout algorithms optimally arrange the individual elements so that, for example, line overlaps are minimized. Not only does Docusnap relieve you of the tedious task of creating these plans, it can also automatically send them to any recipient. In this way, all your colleagues and IT service providers are always up to date. If you still want to edit the network plan manually, you can of course export it as a Microsoft Visio file.

 

That’s Docusnap:
