IT documentation contains documentation of software and hardware information, Windows domains, IP Networks, and active directory installations. Network documentation tools intelligently scan a network and store the configuration of the discovered devices. There are additional features associated with network documentation software, which includes report filtering, scheduled reports, business dashboards, scheduled discovery, and mapping. Network documentation tools help maintain a record of configuration of IT infrastructure. Industries demand an exceptionally changeable IT infrastructure with its partially complex relations and requirements in terms of operational and strategic decisions.
Thus, it is necessary to always have network documentation available, which presents the actual state of the network. A network documentation process goes to a central IT management tool when it comes to assess IT processes, choose on investments and migration, and evaluate access rights or network loads. It takes a huge amount of time to update the network documentation software. Documentation is especially important within the IT and network administration professions. Up-to-date documentation is extremely valuable, but out-of-date documentation can be worse than having no documentation at all. Network documentation offers a static record of the state of the network.
Network documentation software solutions address exploitable software problems and ensure that processes and products that are utilized to develop and sustain the software are according to the standards and requirements. Network documentation software market is witnessing significant expansion due to the rising demand for automated network documentation systems such as Netdisco and Netdot. Such software automatically generate configurations for software packages. These tools are either available as open source or commercially. Documentation is required for repeating and automating installations. Documentation contains the implementation details that are required in security and change management policies. Documentation is a necessary component of disaster recovery and for purposes such as audit. Since, network documentation is critical in a production environment, enterprises are focusing on adoption of network documentation tools, which is driving the Network documentation software market. Thus, all such factors are expected to drive the Network documentation software market during the forecast period.
Factors such as high maintenance cost of network documentation tools in order to update the documentation are expected to restrain the Network documentation software market during the forecast period. Furthermore, a lack of awareness and implementation of network documentation tools among small enterprises are anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
The global network documentation software market can be segmented based on deployment model, documentation type, enterprise size, industry, and geography. In terms of deployment model, the Network documentation software market can be bifurcated into cloud and on premise. Based on documentation type, the Network documentation software market can be segregated into system documentation, software documentation, and other technical documentation. In terms of enterprise size, the Network documentation software market can be classified into small and medium size enterprises and large enterprises.
For larger networks, network documentation provides a complete picture, especially where IT systems continue to expand and where a number of individuals maintain separate elements. In terms of industry vertical, the Network documentation software market can be split into banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), retail and consumer goods, healthcare, IT & telecommunications, transportation & logistics, manufacturing, government, aerospace & defense, media & entertainment, education, energy & utilities, and others. Based on geography, the Network documentation software market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America.
Network documentation software goes into great depth to ensure that networks are managed effectively. Specific employee or department is given the responsibility to create and maintain the software. Sometimes, vendors offer IT support to help end-users to compile and update network documentation software. Key players operating in the network documentation software market include Graphical Networks LLC, NetBrain, CENTREL Solutions Ltd., Unitworx, Open-AudIT, Docusnap, SYDI, WingSwept, Auvik Networks, Cisco Systems, Inc., ADCom Solutions, and JDisc.
