Research shows NCCM (Network Change and Configuration Market) evolving

"There has been an evolutionary acceptance of NCCM strategic importance and functional capabilities," said Jeffrey Nudler, senior analyst and project lead at EMA. "More than 51 percent of respondents reported having made NCCM purchases in conjunction with CMDB initiatives -- highlighting the importance of NCCM and its integration with other IT management components."

The NCCM market segment is a relatively new addition to the broader IT management market, yet EMA has been involved practically from its inception and witnessed the market go through this remarkable transformation. Until recently, configuration remained focused exclusively on the network device itself. Today, configuration management must take into account the relationships between devices and the impact of change on adjacent devices. This shift from a static, device-oriented approach to a dynamic approach elevates the relevance of NCCM to both structural and operational IT management.
