quality and reduce operating costs.

    -- Integration with IBM Netcool and HP Openview

       EMC ControlCenter.

    -- Outage Editor linked to ticketing applications.
    -- Easy-to-use wizards for report creation
    -- Enhanced EMC|SMARTS adapter "Designed for EMC" that collect data from
       Smarts AM/PM/SPM, ACM, MPLS, SIA, BIM, SAM to provision and update
       reports on the fly, build business process maps and eliminate network
       double-polling.

    About APG V3.1
    
    APG's scalable architecture includes modules that can be distributed to
deliver complete monitoring and reporting for enterprises and carriers
networks:

    
    -- APG Collectors: lightweight processes that collect data from various
       sources including SNMP, network management systems, Element Management
       Systems, Cisco Netflow, VoIP equipments and enterprise data (SQL
       databases, files, home-grown tools...). They can be scaled and
       deployed as your business grows.
    -- APG backend and database: The backend module receives, normalizes and
       consolidates the collected data.  Data aggregation is performed for
       report acceleration and data retention is managed for storage
       optimization.  The database module is self-maintaining and supports
       MySQL, Oracle and Microsoft-SQL with a documented schema.

       to operations and customers.  Advanced features include a graphical
       report builder, a formula editor to compute complex KPIs, an outage
       editor, LDAP authentication, a profile-based security and integration
       with NMS/EMS consoles.
    -- APG ReportPacks: predefined reports with built-in analytics dedicated
       to a specific technology or vendor.  ReportPacks are available for
       various domains, including IP, MPLS networks, Virtualization, QOS, IP-
