VMware Smart Assurance solutions are designed to integrate with management tools and other operational support systems. VMware Smart Assurance leverages management data from third-party sources while providing console access to third-party management applications. VMware Smart Assurance software’s ability to distill countless events into a concise set of defined problems and exceptions makes it a natural integration point for problem management (ticketing) systems.

Service Assurance’s integration with other management applications lowers operational costs by providing users with a single, consistent, intuitive interface for viewing all management data. At the same time, Service Assurance improves operational control by presenting a concise display of network problems in their full topology context, complete with their impacts and histories.
